Though Burns & Wilcox has accomplished a lot since 1969, we are not content to rest on our laurels. In fact, one of our primary goals is to be a leader and innovator in the insurance industry.
Throughout our existence, Burns & Wilcox has chosen not to follow the path of others, but instead to blaze new trails. For example, as the specialty insurance industry evolved, we recognized a clear need for highly skilled individuals to handle difficult to place risks within specialized areas of expertise. We met that need head-on; creating Centers of Excellence within a wide range of specialty insurance products including:
• Leisure and Recreation
• Umbrella/Excess Casualty
• Management Liability
• Professional Lines
That means that unlike with some of our competitors, if you call on Burns & Wilcox for Umbrella/Excess coverage, you won’t just be working with a highly skilled “insurance person,” you’ll be working with a seasoned Umbrella/Excess person—one with unrivaled expertise and unparalleled access to markets.
While Burns & Wilcox has served as a model for others in the industry through our willingness to evolve our products and services, we have demonstrated leadership in other areas as well including:
At Burns & Wilcox we are committed to increasing our efficiency while simultaneously protecting our environment. In fact, we were one of the first companies in the insurance industry to go completely paperless.
Emerging Leaders Program
To ensure our continued future success, the most important investment we can make is in people. That’s why we created this forward-thinking program that takes today’s top young talent direct from universities and prepares them to be tomorrow’s industry leaders.
We know that it is equally important that we educate the brokers and agents we partner with so together we can most effectively deliver innovative insurance solutions to their clients. That is why we formed the Kaufman Institute, our online agent education program, offering e-learning courses, digital books and leadership videos for professional development.
