Based in Chicago, LineSlip Solutions is actively working with some of the country’s leading risk managers, insurance brokerage, private equity and real estate firms.
My twenty year career in New York has allowed me to go deep into industries that I am incredibly passionate about — finance, real estate and insurance. I’ve been drawn to companies with big ideas that are able to transform businesses and entire industries in the process.
After years in finance I made the move to real estate and was astounded by the inefficiencies in getting commercial insurance for my buildings. I always had a strong desire to become an entrepreneur and realized that this was my opportunity. I co-founded LineSlip with colleagues from the insurance industry who shared my passion for transforming this industry and ensuring that it didn’t get left behind in the data revolution. My vision for LineSlip is that it will streamline many archaic processes, bring collaboration where there once was silos, and allow everyone to benefit from data.
I joined LineSlip from Marsh, where I held a variety of operational and strategic leadership roles over the course of a 25 year career at the firm. In my last role I was the Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director for Marsh North America.
As Chief Operating Officer, I helped oversee Marsh’s day to day US and Canadian business and served as a member of the division’s Executive Committee. I was responsible for driving and implementing strategic, financial and operational initiatives as well as building and managing operations and technology.
I have experience in all facets of the Property & Casualty business including underwriting, broking, sales, client management, specialty areas, P&L management and geographical leadership.
I joined LineSlip because I am passionate about predictive analytic development at scale and know I can make a difference in the insurance industry. I have technology and leadership experience working in asset management and risk management with emphasis on fixed income derivatives pricing and insurance linked securities such as catastrophe linked bonds.
At LineSlip, I manage a team or product and engineering professionals that want to solve big problems and help an established industry use the power of data to improve their work and the industry as a whole.
I have spent the majority of my career in the insurance industry at companies such as USAA and Zurich North America. I have experience in claims, underwriting and operations handling various lines of businesses in the Property and Casualty as well as Management and Financial line segments. I excel at change management, business process outsourcing and vendor management. My specialty is using proven and intuitive process transformation and automation techniques to effectively reduce expenses, streamline operations, increase productivity and optimize workflows and processes—all while driving user adoption and enthusiasm.
I joined LineSlip Solutions in 2018 as Lead Product Controller where I help drive the product roadmap to ensure a valuable and compelling product-market fit with brokers, carriers and insureds. My deep domain expertise handling a multitude of lines of business throughout my career enables me to ensure users see an immediate and impactful benefit to any new technology implementation and only transforms their day-to-day status quo in a meaningfully positive way.
I began my career as an Underwriter and Account Executive for The Travelers Insurance Company, where I coordinated all service delivery for my clients and underwrote a diverse book of large corporate accounts. I later joined The Coca-Cola Company where I served as Director, Global Risk Management for 11 years. I led a team of 22 professionals and set strategy for Coca-Cola’s global Risk Management approach. I was selected for the Business Insurance Risk Manager of the Year Honor Roll in addition to receiving Honorable Mention in the “Innovators” edition of Risk & Insurance Magazine and received the World Captive Forum’s Company Award of Excellence on behalf of The Coca-Cola Company. In 2016, I established ELT Risk Solutions, LLC, a Risk Management Advisory firm specializing in the property-casualty insurance arena, serving midsize to large companies. ELT works with Risk Managers, Start Ups and Corporate Executives as a strategic partner or outsourced Risk Manager, to lead and manage insurance-related projects, solve risk management problems, strategize for efficiency, leverage data and evaluate alternatives to bring value to the bottom line.
