Brittany Lannan, Everest Insurance
Senior underwriter of professional liability, Everest Specialty Underwriters
Brittany Lannan joined Everest Insurance in 2019 to help launch the lawyers’ professional liability policy. Her responsibilities include growing the lawyers’ professional liability business, developing and strengthening relationships with brokers, and using her specialized industry knowledge to effectively address clients’ needs. Prior to joining Everest, Lannan spent five years as an underwriter at Sompo International and three years as an accountant at QBE.
“Having spent a few years in the back office of an insurance carrier, I was eager to be a part of generating the revenue I saw in those reports,” she says. A self-described “big fan of data,” Lannan began to harness the power of data as an underwriter to analyze her book of business and identify trends to better inform underwriting decisions. Coupled with her interest in building and cultivating relationships, it made for a seamless transition from accounting, she says.
