Calling all Program Administrators

Tysers, working with the TMPAA, is proud to sponsor the “Targeting Talent Trophy” which looks to provide a selected individual, from a Program Administrator member of the Association, the opportunity to travel to London for a 10 day educational assignment during the spring of 2019.

The selected applicant will leave London with a comprehensive understanding of how Program Business is transacted in the London market, spending time with the Tysers’ broking team and various Lloyd’s syndicates. There will be a focus on all aspects of transacting Program Business in London from client introduction through placement to accounting and claims.

This educational assignment is targeting applicants with:

  •    Minimum of 3 years experience with a Program Administrator
  •    Potential future carrier relationship responsibilities
  •    Interest in broadening their experience to include knowledge of the London Market 

Sponsorship will include flights to London, transfers and accommodation for the duration of the stay.

TMPAA members interested in this opportunity will need to complete the Targeting Talent Trophy Application and submit by September 21, 2018. Based on individual responses, the top 10 applications will be selected. From this group of 10, one application will be randomly selected as the 2018 Targeting Talent Trophy winner. The winner will be announced at the 18th Annual Summit in October.

Here's what the 2017 recipient had to say about the experience:

I am so appreciative to have received this opportunity! Prior to my trip, I thought I had a solid understanding of how the London markets operated. Target Markets and Tysers could not have provided a better experience to educate me on the process in which business is transacted and the emphasis placed on personal relationships. It was refreshing to see the Lloyd’s tradition of face-to-face transactions in practice.

Since Great Lakes General Agency specializes in trucking insurance, Tysers divided my time perfectly between visiting with syndicates and the various departments of Tysers, with a focus on the Transportation and Auto division. Shadowing the Auto Team allowed for existing relationships to be strengthened, current processes to be streamlined and a more thorough understanding of the risk appetite and underwriting styles of the transportation underwriters.
