Christine Palermo, Worldwide Facilities
For the last five years, Christine Palermo has worked for Worldwide Facilities as a marine underwriter and broker. She started her career at Crump Insurance Services, where she worked for 16 years, beginning at the bottom and swiftly working her way up to underwriter and broker. During her time with Crump, Palermo focused on marine risks, specifically in the areas of cargo and marine liabilities, and she now specializes in ocean cargo and stock throughput risks – all of which often cross over into the energy arena.
Initially, Palermo entered marine insurance because it was required of her. She remained in it, however, because of all the different types of risks it presents. “The products insured involve a wide variety, from A to Z,” she says. “Each opportunity presents a new dynamic for customizing the needs of the client. What I enjoy most in this field of work is the constant chase and challenge of working with each agent.”
