Executive vice president
Bain Head got her start in the insurance industry when she joined Alexander & Alexander’s risk management training program after college. She chose to focus on executive liability insurance due to its diversity and complex policy contracts, as well as the financial and legal bent to underlying exposures. Almost three decades later, she continues to hone that specialty. Head also inspired the formation of and actively champions CAC Specialty’s Women’s Development Network, which is designed to engage, empower and encourage women in all facets of life.
While Head thrives on the intellectual stimulation provided by her work, it’s the people that motivate her the most. “I measure success in terms of a client who feels his or her job is easier as a result of my work on their behalf,” she says. “I strive to understand my client’s businesses, anticipate their needs and solve issues before they become problems so that the clients can focus on other priorities.”
