BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

2017 Break Out Awards, Midwest: Tyler LaMantia


Area executive vice president

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

Rolling Meadows, Illinois

Age: 31

Tyler LaMantia began early at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. He was 19 years old when he worked as a file clerk for the company. He interned at Gallagher for two years and eventually joined the company in 2008 as an account executive. He specializes in public entity, business and risk pooling. In 2017, he became area executive vice president.

Best advice you’ve been given

Remember that you are a company within a company in terms of your brand, image, work ethic and follow-through, meaning the way you position yourself within the industry. Every action reflects on you positively and negatively. My decisions were consistently made with the thought of reflecting positively on Gallagher and myself. That’s important, because in this industry you’re only as good as your reputation.

Best-kept secret about insurance

The ability to dictate your own success. Many jobs out there seem more glamorous and seem like they would be better off financially for an individual, but the ability to dictate your lifestyle, earnings, your level and success through hard work from a career and financial standpoint is the best-kept secret.

Next big thing in insurance

I think we are starting to see a lot of carriers raise concern on concussions, degenerative nerve-type issues for any type of physical activity, whether it’s a school with sports or a city with park district camps. We are seeing a lot of carriers wanting to exclude concussions and degenerative nerve issues.

Hobbies and interests

I’ve always been an avid sports fan. The competition is something that I think translates into my work and so I relate to that. I also enjoy active and outdoor activities.
