Altus Partners adds new board of directors member

Altus Partners has announced that Burke F. Hayes has joined its board of directors.

Hayes is the former president of a Washington, D.C.-based independent insurance brokerage called BF Saul Insurance. While at BF Saul, Hayes “successfully managed a seasoned team of professionals serving public and private clients” in the creation of conventional and alternative insurance solutions, a release said.

He is a graduate of the University of South Carolina. Hayes has also served on the Board of Trustees of Sibley Memorial Hospital, Mater Dei School, as well as on the boards of several other non-profits.

“We are thrilled to have Burke join our board,” said Altus Partners president Charlie Wilmerding. “Burke’s experience and keen understanding of all aspects of the property/casualty insurance market will be invaluable to us as we continue on our mission of disrupting the industry by providing clients with uniquely objective counsel and unparalleled service.”

“I’m very excited to be joining Altus’s board. The firm’s commitment to eliminate commission from all insurance transactions gives clients the long-overdue leverage to better manage their insurance and risk-related expenses,” Hayes commented. “Altus is well-positioned to make a big and positive impact on the insurance business. I look forward to contributing in any way I can.”

Altus Partners is a fee-based P&C insurance brokerage firm that serves both personal and commercial clients.
