Burns & Wilcox names new managing director

Burns & Wilcox has appointed Michelle Clark as managing director, to be based in the company’s Denver, CO office.

As managing director, Clark joins the company’s leadership team. She will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Denver team and will lead the office’s growth strategy. Clark will work closely with associate managing director Felicia Armstrong, and will report to executive vice-president, managing director Harvey Goldenberg, who oversees the western region.

Clark has over 25 years of industry experience, having recruited and retained top talent while managing multiple teams across different product specialties such as commercial and professional insurance. She was most recently serving as executive vice-president and broker for RT Specialty where she managed multi-million dollar books of business.

She has two Bachelor of Arts degrees from Columbia College, which include business administration & management and psychology.

“Michelle is a strong addition to the Burns & Wilcox leadership, given her reputation of outstanding client service and developing and leading high-producing underwriting and brokerage teams,” said Goldenberg,

Goldenberg also stated that Clark’s brokerage background and experience writing large accounts perfectly complements the Denver office’s talent.

“The Denver team is known for being a market leader in personal insurance, cannabis risks and various classes of property and I look forward to carrying the reputation forward while identifying additional business growth opportunities,” commented Clark.
