WORLDWIDE PROGRAMS/WORLDWIDE FACILITIES
For Hank Haldeman, relationships are the best part of the insurance business. After 40 years, he says he still enjoys interactions with customers, markets, associates – and even his competitors. Haldeman, who began his career in 1980 as a wholesale broker with Stewart Smith West, credits “the continuing opportunity to develop creative solutions to the emerging and evolving risks that confront industry and individuals in the US” for keeping him in insurance this long.
In 1986, Haldeman took on the roles of COO, SVP and branch manager at Henry Ward Johnson & Company. Just over a decade later, he joined The Sullivan Group as SVP and director, as well as president of GJS Re, Sullivan Healthcare Insurance Services and Sullivan Wholesale Holding Company. He joined Worldwide Facilities in 2018; in his current role, he is responsible for the operation and development of specialty programs, as well as the coordination of product development. Described as a passionate industry volunteer, Haldeman has held leadership roles in associations like WSIA/NAPSLO, the Surplus Line Association of California, the California Insurance Wholesalers Association and the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation.
Looking to the future, Haldeman says he wants to see the industry “do a much better job of promoting the value it provides, and especially the opportunity it represents, to a much broader spectrum of prospective employees.”
