Chris Hampshire continues to make a positive impact and drive results in the insurance industry. Case in point: He was selected as the global CPCU Society president-elect in 2021 and will serve as the global president in 2022. “I’m committed to making sure that 2022 is a year of growth for the CPCU Society and that all of our members have robust leadership, knowledge development and networking opportunities made available to them,” Hampshire says.

As vice president of sales in Gallagher Bassett’s carrier  practice, Hampshire works with leading P&C carriers and program administrators to design impactful claims handling programs. Since beginning his insurance career in 2003, Hampshire has helped lead the business development efforts for a national carrier, a regional brokerage and a national TPA before taking on his current role at Gallagher Bassett.

“I’ve always believed that understanding your client’s ultimate goals, quantifying what those results would look like and then building a personal relationship that makes the journey more fun leads to lasting results with clients,” Hampshire says. “Much of what we do in this industry involves understanding our clients’ needs at a deep level and then providing creative solutions.”
