Megan D. North RPLU, MBA
Vice President, Professional Lines Broker
North began her Insurance career as a Risk Management & Insurance major at the University of Mississippi. Since that time, she worked in finance and retail insurance before settling into the wholesale channel where she has worked for the last 10 years focusing exclusively on Cyber, Management and Professional coverage lines.
Most recently, North has developed a heavy emphasis and focus in Cyber & Tech which led to her selection as a “Young Gun” Broker in 2018 with Insurance Business America. She enjoys education in addition to working with her clients, and has industry speaking experience including hosting a panel on Management Liability for the 2013 IRMI Energy Conference and participating as a panelist for a Cyber-focused session at the Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) national conference in 2017. She has authored multiple coverage articles ranging from Cyber, the Energy Sector and Contractors Professional and is part of a team responsible for developing, negotiating, and coordinating enhancement endorsements and cyber policy reviews with partner insurance carriers.
She has also developed a proprietary Cyber coverage solution, and is co-creator of the first modern Cyber Umbrella policy (an AmWINS Exclusive Product – CyberUP) which is an entirely new type of insurance policy designed to address gaps caused by silent cyber throughout an Insured’s program.
