Broker Connects with Risk Managers
Alfred "Al" Tobin is known as the architect of the formidable telecommunications team at Aon Risk Solutions, at the same time that he keeps his hand in actively managing individual accounts.
"We wouldn't be in an 11-year relationship with Aon if it weren't for Al," said Josh Harwood, director, risk management at Telephone & Data Systems. "His expertise and his involvement in telecom accounts from Verizon to AT&T and us, and everything in between provides us with a great deal of comfort. I know we're getting the same program as Verizon and we're one fraction the size."
Catastrophic property insurance is more technical than ever and Tobin, managing principal and national property leader, is leading his clients to be out in front of it every day.
In the past year, Tobin aided two companies in resolving renewal outcomes even though the companies had not yet completed their debt restructuring. He also assisted several insureds in attaining foreign subsidiary coverage with no additional premium through a London markets solution.
"He exudes a lot of power," said Sheila Small, assistant treasurer, risk management at Verizon. "He has established a very good network of insurance carriers. He has a great memory for people, which amazes me. And he's tireless. How he manages to keep the candle burning on both ends is remarkable. I go out with him early in the morning and he's still going long after I'm back in bed sleeping."
"I think he is well loved," Small said. "Forget about liked. He's beloved."
