Aon, San Francisco
Broker Acts as Quarterback
William Deeb, director of public entities with Aon Risk Solutions, has a knack for filling coverage gaps and saving money for his clients at the same time.
As the new broker for the California Joint Powers Risk Management Authority, Deeb saved the authority $447,000. How? By marketing its property program, restructuring its auto physical damage program, and by removing clauses which limited the age of vehicles that could be added to the policy. Overall, total year-over-year savings for the authority was $806,161, for all their insurance coverages.
The authority's general manager David Clovis said that Deeb, based in San Francisco, "is very knowledgeable, has a lot of energy, is very prompt in returning phone calls and he is incredibly professional."
"When we were hiring him, one of his references said he walks on water, and so far, I get what they said," Clovis said.
Matt Hansen, director of risk management for the City and County of San Francisco, said that Deeb coordinates all of the brokerage and service offerings within the Aon network. Deep represents the Port of San Francisco on a very large construction project, Hansen said.
"He is consistently going above and beyond for any and all of the business going to him," Hansen said. "He has been our quarterback at Aon."
Kevin O'Donnell, administrator and executive director of the Louisville Area Governmental General Insurance Trust, said that Deeb is "works very diligently on the client's behalf."
