Assistant vice president, senior casualty broker
WILLIS TOWERS WATSON
Leveraging his background in economics, Rick Alfonso became fascinated with quantifying, describing and predicting the behaviors of large and complex real-world systems. After two years at Willis Towers Watson, Alfonso was appointed to a lead brokering role within the firm’s large/complex transportation & logistics portfolio, and after three years, he was promoted to AVP of middle-market brokering. He now serves as AVP and senior casualty broker for the Midwest region.
Outside the office, Alfonso volunteers as a court-appointed special advocate of Cook County, where he serves abused and neglected children in the DCFS foster care system by ensuring that their best interests are investigated and represented by the court.
Best advice for other young professionals:
“Don’t hesitate to roll up your sleeves and take on work and projects that may not seem appealing to you.”
