Stan graduated with a business degree from Cleveland State University, where he was also a full-scholarship member of the Division I “Vikings” basketball team. At 5’ 7″ in height, Stan had to work relentlessly to achieve this level of athletic success; and he brings the same intensity to the business world that he brought to the basketball court.
Before joining ARC in 1999, Stan was a Senior Vice President in the Philadelphia office of the Sedgwick Group, and served as the Manager of the Financial Products Department. At Sedgwick he was responsible for the placement and servicing of all Financial Products insurance. Stan was also the Regional Account Director for Sedgwick Financial Risk Specialists; served on the National Bond Committee for Sedgwick; and was a corporate resource to assist other Sedgwick offices in the area of Financial Products.
Stan started his insurance career in 1980 with National Union Fire Insurance Company (AIG) in the New York City home office. By 1982 he had become AIG’s Philadelphia Regional Manager, responsible for underwriting profit/loss in a nine-state region. In addition to his management responsibilities, he maintained significant underwriting authority. Stan joined Sedgwick in 1984 to head the Philadelphia office’s Financial Products department.
Upon the acquisition of Sedgwick by Marsh Inc. in 1998, Stan was offered the job of managing Marsh’s Philadelphia FINPRO practice. He opted instead, however, to open the Mid-Atlantic office of ARC Excess & Surplus.
