Nicole Ricigliano, Senior underwriter, Markel Corporation
Insurance is in Nicole Ricigliano’s blood – nearly every person in her immediate family works in the industry. Ricigliano has spent her career in the excess & surplus sector, and she currently serves as a senior underwriter in Markel’s Excess & Umbrella department, where she handles complex and unique risks. In 2015, Ricigliano was the recipient of the Wholesale President’s Award for most new business written in her region; she placed second in 2016.
In addition to her underwriting duties, Ricigliano has an active role on Markel’s Spirit of Style Committee, which involves planning fundraisers for charity, employee appreciation events and other office activities. She also currently serves on the NAPSLO Career Development & Next Generation Committee and is completing a term as associate chair for the AAMGA Under Forty Organization.
Ricigliano understands the importance of continued education in this industry: She was a recipient of the American Institute Charter Property Casualty Underwriter Presidential Scholarship and completed her CPCU designation in 2012. She is currently working toward her ASLI and ARe designations.
