David DeMott doesn’t just lead Gridiron – he also takes ideas and turns them into real insurance products. DeMott designed and custom-built all of the company’s program product portals, which have the ability to quote, bind and issue in real time. “This, coupled with the ability to design products over several disciplines – including inland marine, property and excess liability – is truly a unique combination,” says Milan Stefanovic, COO of Bass Underwriters.
