Monarch E&S Insurance Services
Specialty: Construction and Manufacturing
Linda Stephens began her insurance career 45 years ago at Aetna C&S, working as a file clerk before moving on to a variety of roles at major insurance carriers, where she has specialized in construction- and manufacturing-related insurance for the past 33 years. For the last eight years, Stephens has worked as a commercial underwriter in the Rancho Mirage, California, office of Monarch E&S Insurance Services, a division of SPG Insurance Solutions.
Stephens says her biggest challenge is finding the best insurance solutions for her retail partners’ clients, which involves knowing which markets offer the best coverage for the best price and making sure retail brokers understand the difference. She prides herself in keeping her clients informed and providing the best service for their customers “I love meeting new challenges every day, no matter how hard the risk may be,” she says.
