Ridge Canada associate underwriter granted underwriting authority

Ridge Canada Cyber Solutions has announced that its associate underwriter Vanessa Abraham has been granted underwriting authority.

Abraham joined Ridge Canada in November 2021. She began her insurance career in 2015 while she was a university student, working part-time at Hub International HKMB. After graduating in 2017, she continued to work for Hub as a full-time broker on the healthcare team. As she specialized in healthcare, she also came to understand that cyber is a key coverage for clients. A release said that Abraham’s interest in this coverage grew, culminating in her decision to jump from broking into underwriting with Ridge Canada.

“All of the hard work that Vanessa has put in over these last six-plus months has validated what we knew to be true when she joined us: that we were working with a brilliant, high-achieving individual who is incredibly motivated to learn and grow,” said Ridge Canada Cyber Solutions president and CEO Greg Markell. . “We are extremely fortunate to have Vanessa on the Ridge Canada team, and our broker partners who have had the fortune of working with her have been telling me the same.”

“Vanessa’s prior experience as an insurance broker allows her to deeply understand the needs and priorities of our broker and client partners,” commented Ridge Canada director of underwriting Kyle Gray. “Combining this service excellence with her ability to learn complex and technical subject matter, she has quickly become an invaluable member of our team.”
