Sarah Lin, RT Specialty
President – casualty division, San Francisco
As president of the San Francisco casualty division of RT Specialty, Sarah Lin is responsible for leading teams, cultivating new retail and carrier relationships, and recruiting and developing new talent. Lin uses her broad expertise in general and umbrella liability to build long-term partnerships to continually deliver top solutions. In the insurance industry for nearly 20 years, Lin was a top-producing casualty broker at CRC Insurance Services before moving to RT Specialty; she began her career servicing CNA Insurance Company as an auditor for Deloitte.
Reflecting on the past 12 months, Lin says she’s learned that while change is challenging, the opportunity for growth, both professionally and personally, makes it worth the risk. “Additionally, I’ve learned that a team not only needs someone who leads by example, but a leader who understands the importance of the effort required to be present,” she says. “Our business is constantly evolving, and it excites me to be part of a dynamic industry with a growing number of women leaders.”
