Risk & Insurance® 2018 Power Broker® Awards: RCM&D’s James Shewey awarded top honor for Education

TOWSON, MD (February 21, 2018)— RCM&D, a leading independent risk management, insurance and employee benefits firm, has announced that one of its rising professionals has been recognized by the Risk & Insurance® 2018 Power Broker® Awards for the excellence in insurance brokerage. James Shewey, Client Executive and Sales Team Leader for the firm’s Virginia Operations, received the top honor in the field of Education.

James Shewey was awarded 2018 Power Broker® for Education for his ability to partner with clients to understand their unique, complex challenges and develop comprehensive solutions that align with their goals. He helps clients to navigate traditional and untraditional exposures and often, uncover hidden risks within their operations. “James knows that insurance is not a one-size-fits-all box for us, and he is flexible in his approach and in managing both liability and perception of liability,” explained one of James’ clients Steve McAllister, Vice President for Finance and Administration at Washington and Lee University.

James joined RCM&D in 2006 as a Client Executive where he began to specialize in the Education industry. He is licensed in Property and Casualty, Life, Annuities and Health Insurance and received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Randolph-Macon College.  “To assume the responsibility of managing an insurance and risk program for a university/college is a tremendous honor and a task that I take very seriously,” said James. “I am constantly seeking opportunities to help my clients improve their internal risk management programs so that they can be ready to respond to an event, on or off campus, that impacts the institution’s students, faculty, staff and/or physical assets.”

“James is an embodiment of the RCM&D culture of collaboration and service,” said Bob Cawley, President/COO of RCM&D. “He continually demonstrates a commitment to excellence and a dedication to developing solutions to the dynamic and complex challenges faced in Education. We are honored to have him recognized by the Risk & Insurance® 2018 Power Broker® Awards.”

The Risk & Insurance® Power Broker® Awards are an annual selection of the most effective and influential commercial insurance brokers. The Power Broker® designation is based on nominations provided by brokers and risk managers and is judged based on the quality of the application and on references by risk managers in each industry sector. Hundreds of risk managers and risk executives are interviewed in the process of identifying and soliciting, evaluating and judging the nominees. Brokers are judged primarily on their creativity in solving risk-related problems during the previous year, their demonstrated industry knowledge and their high level of client service.
