"We’re not concerned with why we shouldn’t create a special risk insurance solution. We’re interested in your business case that tells us why we should."

Andrew Knapp
Regional Director, Eastern Canada

As far as Andrew Knapp is concerned, Wayne Gretzky coined the best motto ever for Andrew’s line of work: you miss 100 per cent of the shots you don’t take.

“We’re not concerned with why we shouldn’t create a special risk insurance solution. We’re interested in your business case that tells us why we should.”

Andrew has spent over 34 years in the industry, getting a 360-degree view of what goes into successful special risk products. Before joining our team in 2009, he worked with a major international risk management firm, providing integrated medical, clinical, and security, benefit services to organizations with international operations. Andrew’s previous experience also touches on the Property and Casualty side of the Insurance business with roles in business development and underwriting.

“It’s an invaluable education to know what it’s like on the ‘other side’ because I can appreciate the needs of a wide variety of individuals and disciplines in the process of doing business. “  

Andrew is a Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP) and a Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker (CAIB).  Despite a daily cross-town commute to and from the office, he’s fiercely committed to the team: “Everyone at Special Markets Solutions is passionate about their work and respectful and supportive of each other. That, more than anything else, has an impact on me.”
