John Butler, Program Brokerage Corporation
Senior vice president and environmental division practice leader
Program Brokerage Corporation
In his role as senior vice president and environmental division practice leader of Program Brokerage Corporation [PBC], John Butler works with a wide network of brokers to provide customized insurance solutions to help organizations that require protection against environmental risks while accommodating regulatory demands and lending requirements.
With more than four decades of insurance experience, including roles as an international loss adjuster and energy and specialty sector broker, Butler has been dedicated to environmental coverage for the last 25 years. His focus in this area began when he was placing programs to insure oil and specialty chemical companies against exposures to potentially catastrophic pollution liabilities. Recognizing the potential growth of what was at the time a new insurance segment, Butler transitioned to environmental insurance as a full-time specialty. He created PBC Environmental in 2002 and designed a unique wholesale resource that goes beyond typical policy placement to provide hands-on assistance to brokers and their insureds.
