Assistant vice president, broker
BROWN & RIDING
Bob Pedersen began his insurance career in 2007 with Navigators Management Company as a primary casualty underwriter, writing everything from small, basic accounts to large and complex ones. In 2011, Pedersen assisted in starting Houston Casualty Company’s E&S primary casualty construction unit, including developing appetite, writing forms and marketing the national launch.
As an E&S construction underwriter, Pedersen developed relationships with wholesale brokers across the country and noticed a need for knowledge, innovation and specialization in the wholesale space. He then made the shift from underwriter to E&S wholesale broker by joining Travis- Pedersen (now Brown & Riding) in 2013. As a wholesale broker, Pedersen places general and excess liability, specializing in tough-to-place products accounts and construction risks, including project-specific and wrap-up programs.
