Matthew Bagley, CRUM & FORSTER

Assistant vice president
CRUM & FORSTER
Age: 33

A relative newcomer to the insurance industry, Matthew Bagley has quickly established himself as a key player at Crum & Forster. Bagley came to the company from a job in geothermal engineering and, in less than five years, has progressed from an occupational accident underwriter to assistant vice president of the occupational accident division. He runs a team that consists of underwriting, accounting and operations branches and has helped to grow a profitable book of business and expand the company’s appetite into new segments of business, including the gig economy.

Recently, Bagley helped develop Crum & Forster’s new company slogan, which will be used for the next five years and is centered around the “greatness of togetherness” – a reflection of Bagley’s dedication to creating a team-friendly environment where “everyone helps everyone so each person can develop into the best version of themselves.”
