William Cote, Vice President, W.H. Greene & Associates
W.H. Greene & Associates
Specialty: Commercial Umbrella and Excess
Unlike many in the business, William Coté always planned to go into insurance. He started as an actuary more than 40 years ago, but he quickly discovered he liked people better than numbers and, after a brief stint as a life and health insurance agent, became a property & casualty underwriter. He developed an expertise in umbrella/excess liability and specialty lines insurance, which ultimately led him to join W. H. Greene & Associates shortly after its founding more than 30 years ago.
As the company’s vice president, Coté helps to run three national umbrella/ excess liability programs while also managing a book of brokerage business. In addition to training underwriters, his current projects include a comprehensive review of coverage forms for each carrier and analysis of loss trends.
