Faye Cook, Allied World
Senior vice president and head of global client engagement and key accounts
Faye Cook leads Allied World’s major accounts practice, which specializes in relationship management for multiline clients worldwide. After years of working in journalism and media, Cook got an introduction to the insurance industry when visiting Bermuda in 2001 to write an economic report during the industry’s capacity crunch just after 9/11. Now a member of Allied World’s global executive leadership team, mentor program and various D&I initiatives, Cook says she most enjoys learning about her buyers’ businesses and working with her team to service and strengthen client relationships.
Outside of work, Cook is the co-founder of Deals & Heels, a professional networking group for women in insurance and risk management. “I enjoy meeting new people, hearing about their goals and careers, and helping where I can,” she says. “During our current COVID-19 situation, I’m reminded just how important relationships are to our business. Technology is a fantastic support tool, but it doesn’t replace the experience you get from physical interaction with someone.”
