The PRMA Insurance Thought Leaders Insight Series with Spencer Houldin, alongside leading thought leaders in the industry, aims to examine the insurance terrain, identify solutions to navigating the bumpy roads and provide a roadmap that guides risk management professionals in the right direction. This episode is a sit-down with Kathy Tierney, the President of Berkley One.
Spencer M. Houldin is the President of Ericson Insurance Services. He has 30 years of experience as a personal insurance advisor and leads Ericson’s high net worth personal insurance division.
Kathy Tierney says the best things happening in our business right now will come from looking at what we do through a totally different lens, having a little bit of fun with it, and not being afraid to experiment and take inspiration from unlikely places.
She joined Berkley from a position as chief operating officer of another high-net-worth personal insurance division. Her career has included leadership positions in specialty insurance, strategic development, and surety.
Though she has won many awards for her accomplishments in the insurance industry, Kathy says she’s proudest of two things: her efforts to expand opportunities for women in insurance, and the fact that she can impress her two teenaged boys when she tells them about what Berkley One is doing. She holds a B.A. from Williams College and an MBA in finance and economics from NYU’s Stern School of Business.
