All Risks, Ltd. Expands University Program to Include Winter Session

Friday, February 19, 2016

HUNT VALLEY, MD (February 16, 2016) – All Risks, Ltd., the nation’s largest independent wholesaler, has expanded its All Risks University (ARU) program by adding winter sessions.  Fifteen hard-working individuals from diverse backgrounds, many including military experience, compose the first winter ARU class, which commenced January 18, 2016.

ARU is an intense six-week educational program that prepares its participants for a variety of production career paths available at All Risks, Ltd.  The topics discussed strengthen and encourage excellent underwriting, written and oral communications, interpersonal skills as well as marketing and sales skills.  In addition to classroom time, students must complete homework, capstone project work and participate in social events that build relationships with All Risks' carrier and retail agency partners.  All Risks’ experienced production managers challenge students with accounts that demand thoughtful and analytical skill application, and mentors provide counseling and insight to the fast-paced world of surplus and specialty lines, as the students continue their formal learning through the acquisition of industry designations and attendance at the NAPSLO (National Association of Professional Surplus Lines Offices) schools.


“The ARU training program is an excellent transition from school to building a successful career.  Most of the participants come to All Risks right after graduating college or leaving their military career.  By offering a new ARU winter session, we can open this unique leadership opportunity to even more individuals.  This fast-track sales development program is an asset to the organization and reflects the key concepts of our Guiding Principles,” explains Sharon Gallagher, All Risks’ University and Intern Program Manager.
