USIA 2022

The 2022 Business Insurance U.S. Insurance Awards celebrate teams working across the insurance and risk management sector that are providing solutions to problems faced by commercial insurance buyers and supporting the industry.

Finalists and winners include risk management teams improving return-to-work programs, brokers finding new capacity for their clients, underwriters providing coverage that responds to the evolving economy, and efforts by various companies to support their communities and improve their work environments.

The centerpiece of the awards event, which was held in New York in September, was the presentation of the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award to J. Patrick Gallagher Jr., chairman, president and CEO of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., who was also inducted into the Business Insurance Hall of Fame (see profile here).

The team awards recognize the achievements of groups of insurance and risk management professionals who collaborated on specific projects. 

The nomination period for the awards opened in April, and we received more than 150 nominations. Business Insurance staff selected finalists in 10 categories.

The winners were selected by a panel of more than 30 risk managers who independently assessed each of the finalists.

The awards event also raised funds for the Business Insurance Scholarship, which was founded to help address the talent shortage facing the insurance sector and is administered by the Spencer Educational Foundation Inc. This year’s recipients are Sebastian Czerwinski, a mathematics and actuarial science major at Illinois State University in Normal, and Sienna Sigmon, a risk management and insurance major at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.

Profiles of the winning teams are below.
