Norcross-based specialist broker recognized as industry top performer

INSUREtrust’s Christiaan Durdaller has been included in Insurance Business America magazine’s Top Specialist Brokers report

Online PR News – 05-March-2020 – Denver, CO – A Norcross-based insurance professional has just been recognized in a prestigious list of the industry’s top-performing specialist brokers.

INSUREtrust’s Christiaan Durdaller has been included in Insurance Business America magazine’s Top Specialist Brokers report, recognizing the 47 market experts who have mastered a specific area of expertise to help secure coverage for specialty clients and hard-to-place risks.

As the executive vice president of INSUREtrust, Durdaller leads the corporate solutions brokering team with a specific focus on INSUREtrust’s national cyber and technology clients. “While cyber is a financial lines coverage, it takes more than a financial lines generalist to craft cyber coverage language appropriately, and I think brokers are finally realizing this as claims frequency has increased at a substantial rate over the last two years,” Durdaller says of his specialty. “In 2012, I saw it as an opportunity, and I haven’t looked back since.” Durdaller uses his position in INSUREtrust’s leadership team to help ensure the company’s products, services and solutions stay ahead of the market and competition, while also dealing with the teams’ strategic partnerships and lead production. In both 2017 and 2019, Durdaller’s team was recognized internationally by Advisen and industry peers as Cyber Brokering Team of the Year; in 2018, Durdaller was named US Cyber Risk Industry Person of the Year by Advisen.

“From autonomous vehicles to zip-line courses, from chemical companies to schools, the industries that require special insurance coverage are countless. Each area of business also requires a knowledgeable expert who can meet its specific, ever-changing needs. That’s where the 47 specialist wholesale brokers featured on this year’s list come into play,” says the Insurance Business team. “Nominated by their agent partners and colleagues, these individuals possess unique insights and highly developed skill sets tailored to their particular specialty, which they use to help retail agents and their clients secure the best coverage possible. By staying abreast of trending topics and changes in their areas of expertise, these brokers not only ensure agents and their clients are taken care of, but that each business is covered for future risks as well.”
