Assurex Global, the world’s largest privately held commercial insurance, risk management, and employee benefits brokerage group, recently held its 2015 Shareholders’ Meeting & Global Conference in Dublin, Ireland. The conference brought together nearly 200 attendees, representing 72 Partner firms from 35 countries, to share best practices and discuss future initiatives of Assurex Global.
The conference marked the end of Bob Cawley’s two-year term as Assurex Global chairman. “We owe a great debt of gratitude to Bob Cawley,” Assurex Global President & CEO Hackbarth said. “We were very fortunate to have him as chairman during a transformational time for Assurex Global. He has been an integral part of driving the Partnership forward over the last two years; we sincerely thank him for his dedication and service.”
Bob is succeeded by Charlie Rosson, CEO of Woodruff-Sawyer & Co. in San Francisco, California. Woodruff-Sawyer & Co. has been an Assurex Global Partner for 31 years. Charlie is the third representative of the firm to serve on the Assurex Global board of directors, following Robert F. Sawyer (1990-1993) and Stanley D. Loar (1997-2005).
