The Big Interview
Senior underwriter, accident & health
BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY SPECIALTY INSURANCE
Described by one colleague as an “extremely driven individual” and “without a doubt, one of the industry’s brightest future leaders”, Shaun Higgerson is the senior underwriter for accident and health policies in BHSI’s newly established A&H team. He’s been responsible for developing market-leading policy wordings, and will be driving new opportunities for BHSI for A&H and all lines of insurance.
Higgerson joined Chubb’s A&H team as an underwriter, and was soon promoted to senior underwriter. After nearly four years at Chubb working with global and independent brokers in NSW and the ACT, he was approached to join BHSI and help build their first A&H team anywhere in the world!
Before entering the insurance world, Higgerson enjoyed a successful road cycling career, which included winning the 2005 Tour of Tasmania and a 13th place finish in the 2006 Tour Down Under, which saw him ranking ahead of 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans!
