Jeffrey Hubbard, Vice president, broker, environmental practice, Brown & Riding
Brown & Riding
Jeffrey Hubbard began his career in risk management with a Fortune 1000 building products manufacturer, where he focused on the company’s environmental risk issues. In 1993, he joined AIG Environmental as an environmental risk analyst and rose to the level of regional manager. Since that time, Hubbard has held roles with Zurich, where he was instrumental in creating Zurich Environmental’s underwriting approach for oil & gas exposures, and XL Environmental, where he developed the underwriting and rating approach within the energy sector.
Today, as vice president and expert environmental broker at Brown & Riding, Hubbard says his biggest challenge is “quickly digesting all the environmental data in order to do the best job that I can for my clients. Submissions can have thousands of pages of data to review and digest so that you can truly understand the risk you are brokering and the impact of the exclusions that the underwriter may want put on the policy.”
Outside of his day-to-day duties, Hubbard has served as a member of the University of North Texas’ Finance Insurance Real Estate and Law Curriculum Advisory Board, and as the insurance editor of the Brownfield News.
