Glenn Petersen, All Risks
Specialty: Builder's Risk
Glenn Petersen’s specialty in builder’s risk was born out of his love for construction. “I have always had an interest in development, redevelopment, city planning and all of those subjects,” he says. “Being a builder’s risk specialist gives me a chance to see that development and feel like I’m participating.”
Petersen has been acquiring knowledge in this area since he began his insurance career in 1989 as a loss control specialist and underwriter. His experience of inspecting thousands of businesses and speaking with countless business owners to learn which risk control techniques work best gives him significant credibility with underwriters, and he is diligent in his examination of construction budgets, analyzing the values and evaluating whether the terms indicated are adequate to complete projects.
“One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned during my career is that you can never be complacent,” Petersen says. “There is always more to learn. You have to remain sharp and focused because that’s what customers demand and deserve.”
