Nominations open for US Insurance Awards 2020

Business Insurance on Thursday opened nominations for the 2020 U.S. Insurance Awards.

The U.S. Insurance Awards highlight exceptional work by insurance professionals working at companies across the commercial insurance industry, from retail brokers to third-party administrators, insurers, insurtechs, risk managers and others.

A fundraising program associated with the awards was created to address the industry’s talent crisis by funding the Business Insurance Scholarship Endowment, which provides scholarships, grants, and programming at universities without risk management degree programs.

The U.S. Insurance Awards honor teams of professionals working on specific projects in 15 categories. Anyone familiar with a team’s work can nominate them for an award. Submissions are due Dec. 20.

All nominations will be reviewed by a panel of Business Insurance editors who will select finalists in each category. The finalists will be reviewed by a panel of up to 100 professional risk managers, and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner in New York on March 12, 2020.

  • Broker Team of the Year (firms with less than $500 million in U.S. revenue)
