Chelsea Bergen, Risk Placement Services
Area assistant vice president
Risk Placement Services
Specialty: Inland Marine
Chelsea Bergen spent 10 years on the underwriting side of inland marine coverage, so she brings a wealth of knowledge to the specialty as a broker. In her three years with Risk Placement Services [RPS], Bergen has helped to grow the RPS Chicago inland marine book from virtually nothing to more than $10 million. Her brokers trust her to secure the most competitive products and coverages for their clients, and Bergen isn’t shy about putting together coverage comparisons, getting on the phone to speak with insureds about their exposures and going through forms line by line to ensure the correct coverage.
“I love working with our underwriters,” she says. “The inland marine line of business can include hundreds of different types of business operations and covered property, and our underwriters make it possible for us to be successful and deliver the coverage that our clients need.”
