Vice President and Director
IMA Inc., Denver
Sealing a Reputation for Making Things Happen
Mark Ware, vice president and director of IMA Inc. in Denver, has a reputation for making things happen on many fronts of the insurance brokerage business.
"Mark understands everything from marketing, to the coverage placements, as well as the claims side," said Steve Frenette, manager of risk management at Time Warner Telecom. "There's not a part of the equation he leaves you short on."
"He has the technical issues covered, as well as having the contacts to get the answers you need and he really understands his clients' businesses," Frenette said. "He also presents material in a way that various audiences at companies need to hear it."
In 2011, a major data client that develops, owns and manages data centers across the country was ready to go public with a $270 million offering and needed a broker to meet its unique insurance and risk management needs. A few months before the initial public offering, the client contacted IMA to see if it could handle everything from the directors' and officers' coverage to large values in catastrophe zones, as well as the demands that its lenders and investors would have on the placement of the insurance portfolio. Ware was able to deliver, in the face of a tight deadline, a program that exceeded the expectations of the client.
In another case, Joseph Guerriero, senior vice president and general counsel of ViaWest, said of Ware, "He looked into a couple of different programs for us that aren't commonly available and he was able to procure them."
