Scott Shapiro, RT Specialty
Specialty: Professional lines – D&O
Scott Shapiro is a vice president on Team Reiner/Richmond within RT ProExec Chicago, where his focus is public and private D&O. Shapiro began his career at AIG in 2007, starting as an intern and finishing as a senior underwriting specialist when he left in June 2019. After more than a decade of service to AIG, Shapiro realized his favorite aspect of the insurance industry was making deals and working directly with clients, prompting him to move from underwriting to the brokering side. He has been able to use the knowledge he garnered from underwriting – including niche D&O placements for bankruptcies, multinational placements, IPOs, and all things D&O, EPL, fiduciary, crime, and K&R – and apply it to his current role as an RT broker.
“The biggest differentiator from the competition is our team,” Shapiro says. “We are the hardest-working and most dedicated people in the wholesale insurance industry, and we do not stop until there is a solution for every deal – even if that means working around the clock. We are extremely collaborative and full of knowledge across all executive liability lines of coverage.”
