FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OLDWICK - JANUARY 16, 2023 10:59 AM (EST)
AM Best again will co-sponsor and participate in the annual Emerging Leaders Conference, which recognizes high-performing individuals and provides professional training to develop the next generation of insurance industry leaders. The event, which will take place February 5-7, 2023, in Charleston, SC, is hosted jointly with the American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) and the Insurance Careers Movement.

AM Best Rating Services Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Andrea Keenan will join a panel discussion on Feb. 6, at 10:20 a.m. (EST), titled, “Navigating Global Risks & ESG While Advancing Resiliency.” Additionally, AM Best Senior Financial Analyst Connor Brach, FRM, was selected by conference organizers to be honored as an emerging leader at the annual event. He is responsible for the rating and analysis of a diversified portfolio of property/casualty insurance companies followed by AM Best, notably medical professional liability insurers, as well as captives and other specialty commercial lines writers.

“Connor being recognized at the Emerging Leaders Conference underscores his hard work and commitment to AM Best and the insurance industry,” said Keenan. “AM Best is a proud supporter of this conference, and the Insurance Careers Movement as well. We truly appreciate this opportunity to support young professionals as they develop into being tomorrow’s industry leaders.”

The Insurance Careers Movement is an industrywide initiative designed to raise awareness of the diverse career options that risk management and insurance offer, and AM Best is actively participating in the movement to address the industry’s critical talent gap issue. The Insurance Careers Movement has grown to more than 1,000 different insurance carriers, companies, media organizations and third-party vendors from around the globe.
