Curt Biersch, Executive vice president and regional director, CRC Group
Specialty: Property (inland marine/stock throughputs)
Curt Biersch’s insurance career started when he took a job as a regional property underwriting trainee with Reliance Insurance Companies in 1972. After his first year, Biersch became a property underwriter, advanced into a field representative position and later became the commercial property underwriting manager. In the years that followed, Biersch held a variety of roles, including special risk property underwriting manager at Cravens, Dargan & Co., regional vice president with Industrial Underwriters and president of Sherwood Insurance Services, a position he held until the business was consolidated into Swett & Crawford in 2002.
Biersch relishes the sales side of his role and values the communication and client interaction that has helped him build a stellar reputation in the industry. While he readily leverages technology to keep operations moving forward, he’s passionate about establishing positive, long-term relationships built on meeting people and collaborating face-to-face. He’s also deeply invested in bringing smart young people into the insurance industry and mentoring them through career development. This year, he’s excited to focus on introducing new brokers to the business and seeing the team continue to grow.
