Meet our Rising Stars:
Kate Shaw has been with Trisura for over two years and has nearly 10 years of experience in the insurance industry. As an executive solutions underwriter, she is responsible for managing and building a portfolio of directors’ and officers’ liability and fidelity business. Kate obtained a BA degree from McGill University and also has her Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation.
Kate likes that no two days are the same when working in the insurance industry. “I love that each day brings new challenges and learning opportunities,” she says. “It’s always enjoyable to collaborate with broker partners to find creative insurance solutions for their clients.”
Stephen Logush is a manager of Trisura’s Toronto surety branch. In his role, he is responsible for working with the organization’s broker partners and team of underwriters to grow and manage the portfolio of accounts in Ontario. Stephen is a member of the SAC Young Professionals Committee, which organizes networking and professional development events for the young professionals in our industry. He has earned his Associateship in Canadian Surety Bonding (ACSB) and Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designations, and he is working towards an MBA degree through Wilfrid Laurier, which will be completed next spring.
Why does Stephen enjoy working in the industry? It comes down to the people. “Analyzing a complex set of financial statements is fun and all, but it’s really the people that make the industry so enjoyable,” he says. “Finding solutions while developing long-term relationships with our broker partners and contractors is the most rewarding part of the job.”
