Not many people can say they have been credited on-screen for providing production insurance for a movie – but Robert Jellen can, and he was the first. For more than 40 years, Jellen has provided insurance solutions to major studios, television networks, independent film and television producers, and Fortune 500 advertisers and advertising agencies, including Fox, Walt Disney Company, United Artists, Netflix and more. Today, he leads HUB’s Entertainment Industry Solutions division as managing director.
Over the past seven years, Jellen has insured more than 2,400 scripted and unscripted television productions and has changed the way television producers purchase insurance, such as creating the film tax incentive in 2009 so filmmakers can protect themselves and insure the tax incentive/rebate they expect to earn on their productions.
“[I] am very creative and have developed many insurance products over the years for the motion picture and television industry,” Jellen says. “I don’t accept ‘off the shelf’ policies and am able to negotiate many enhancements in coverage that my clients benefit from.”
