RLI INSURANCE COMPANY
Since joining RLI as an intern in 2011, Trent Colan has quickly assumed roles of increasing responsibility. He initiated and led the expansion of RLI’s Northeast US presence for an existing surety bond product, and his ability to consistently build strong relationships and create win-win partnerships with colleagues, business partners and customers led to his rise to director of underwriting in RLI’s surety product group.
Colan partners closely with RLI’s brokers and insureds, helping them navigate decision-making in the face of a rapidly changing industry, and he has established trust-based partnerships with regulatory committees in Texas and to advocate for responsible and safe regulations and help brokers and insureds make smart decisions for their businesses.
