Senior Underwriter, Philadelphia Office
“My time at Gen Re began as a summer intern in the Property Facultative and Treaty departments in Stamford. In addition to learning about Gen Re's business, departmental reporting systems, contract wording and marketing tools, I had the opportunity to work alongside senior management from the beginning. After college, I accepted a position in Property Facultative as an underwriter trainee where I took part in the company's comprehensive training program. Here I was instructed by experienced underwriters from all over the country on all aspects of the business, including company underwriting guidelines. My Gen Re internship and trainee positions provided a solid underwriting foundation, as well as an impressive professional network, from which to launch what I hope will be a long and successful career.”

“Gen Re is my family away from home. From the first day I interacted with Gen Re, during a bursary interview, it has been an amazing journey. If I had to choose three highlights to describe my time with the company it would be Supportiveness, Environment, and Culture.
Supportiveness – Everyone is willing to give you a helping hand if you ask, no matter if it is work related or personal.
Environment –The people are very friendly and excellent at their jobs. We have an open door policy. Such an environment is excellent for open conversations, and has been great for my learning and career development.
Culture – The Gen Re culture to give constructive feedback has had a positive impact on me and gives me the opportunity to constantly grow.
I’m looking forward to spending many more years with my Gen Re family.”
