Lynn Cogger Koop, RT Specialty
Executive vice president and shared economy practice leader
Lynn Cogger Koop joined RT Specialty in 2010 and is responsible for building the company’s transportation and workers’ compensation practice, with a primary focus on underwriting all classes of livery, trucking, business auto and garage. Prior to RT Specialty, Koop worked at CRC Insurance Services, where she developed a large transportation-focused book. She began her insurance career in 1988 in the underwriting department at Harco National Insurance Company, where she received extensive training on the truck dealership and long-haul trucking classes.
Today, Koop’s specialty knowledge in this area includes car sharing and app-based coverages, hired and non-owned auto insurance, distressed or unique auto, trucking, excess auto, ambulances and non-emergency medical transportation, workers’ compensation, and the Defense Base Act.
“Ninety percent of broking is following up,” Koop says. “Making those personal connections and follow-up are key to our success. I began my career as a truck underwriter and had incredible mentors and have built a solid team in this interesting line of business."
