ICM Spotlight: Blake Berman

As part of the Insurance Careers Month (http://insurancecareerstrifecta.org), find information (in his own words) below on an exciting career of Blake Berman.   Blake works for Guy Carpenter and has a fascinating background.  #RU40s #ICM #careertrifecta #reinsurance

MY BACKGROUND

Before starting my reinsurance career, I was a math and physics nerd and avid football and basketball fan/player. Playing team sports helped develop my work ethic and appreciation for contributing as part of a group. Having a passion for math made working as an actuary a great t for a career. My goal is to help Guy Carpenter transition to being a next-generation risk advisor by building valuable new solutions for our clients.

MY ROLE AT GUY CARPENTER

I help North American clients make better decisions on growth, capital, and enterprise risk management strategy by creatively leveraging data and technology. I work with a team of passionate professionals who are singularly focused on developing solutions for client needs, and who have the capacity to e ciently prototype and automate commonly used analyses.

WHY I CHOSE A CAREER IN (RE)INSURANCE

The re/insurance industry is a great eld for anyone who is mathematically inclined, has people skills, and is not afraid to put a lot of time and energy into developing a career. A career in reinsurance can quite literally take you all over the world and introduce you to many interesting people. I chose to work at Guy Carpenter because of its strong reputation as a top broker, and for the satisfaction I get from learning a wide variety of skills while helping clients solve real-world business problems.

WHAT HAS SURPRISED ME THE MOST

I’m most surprised by the deep connections that people in our industry develop with one another — even as years go by and people may change jobs, those connections endure. I wouldn’t have thought it would be that common to go on vacations with your reinsurance broker, or to invite them to your wedding, but it happens quite often!
