Sep 14: TechAssure, the international association of insurance and risk management experts for technology-related industries, announced today that Graeme Newman of CFC Underwriting is the 2014 recipient of the John Love Risk Innovation Award. The award is presented each year to an insurance professional who has demonstrated ingenuity, innovation and intellect to solve an issue within the risk management industry. Graeme was presented the award by TechAssure Chairman Bryan Costello, of Costello & Sons Insurance, and Executive Director Garrett Droege during their fall conference in Denver, CO.
“Graeme has been a pioneer for developments within the cyber liability and social media insurance marketplace and has creatively addressed many of the challenges in the industry,” said Droege. “CFC Underwriting has become one of the leading providers of cyber insurance, both domestically and internationally, and Graeme Newman has been critical in their growth.”
Newman currently serves as Marketing Director at CFC Underwriting – a UK-based underwriting agency for Lloyd’s of London. Previously, Newman was a consultant for Deloitte.
The John Love Award was created in 2012 after long-time TechAssure Director, John Love, passed away suddenly. John Edward Love, CPCU, was well-known in the insurance industry as a dynamic and creative individual who addressed any challenge with finesse and ease. The award is meant to celebrate his “out-of-the-box” thinking and vision.
