An expert in the excess & surplus market, Burns & Wilcox was formed as an insurance wholesaler nearly half a century ago by Herbert W. Kaufman. Today, his son, Alan Jay Kaufman, carries on the company's legacy as Burns & Wilcox's chairman, president and CEO. With offices spanning across North America, Burns & Wilcox writes more than $1 billion in annual premium through its various offerings for sophisticated and complex risks, including property, casualty, professional, transportation, environmental, marine and cyber.

At the forefront of the industry in terms of investments in recruiting, training and retaining young talent, Burns & Wilcox offers three development-focused programs: the Kaufman Emerging Leaders Program [KELP], the Kaufman Advanced Management Program [KAMP] and the Kaufman Institute, all of which allow the company to remain active in encouraging and training the next generation of insurance leaders.
