Engaging Argosy in the process--as a seamless and collaborative part of your account team, a consultant or as an indirect advisor—allows you to feel confident in addressing this complicated subject, helping to keep your clients and drive new business.
Argosy is led by Tanya Andolsen, a 23-year veteran and leading expert in the environmental insurance niche, with extensive experience at some of the most trusted organizations in the industry.
“It’s important to me that agents and brokers value the guidance that Argosy Risk Specialists can offer as a trusted partner and resource when it comes to environmental risks,” said Andolsen. “Throughout my career, I’ve encountered too many companies that are uninsured or underinsured for potential environmental liabilities. In most cases it’s because of inadequate counseling or direction from their current agent or broker, merely because the account team lacks the expertise or knowledge on how to even begin addressing the subject with their insureds.”
Andolsen served at AIG Environmental as an underwriter and later as a regional manager, overseeing a team of several environmental risk analysts and loss control consultants. During her years years at AIG, she worked alongside many industry leaders responsible for the development of fundamental coverages and underwriting guidelines that have been the building blocks in the environmental insurance market. Later, she moved to the brokerage side, spending 13 years at Wells Fargo Insurance Services (formerly Wachovia and Palmer & Cay), as a national environmental specialist, working with clients nationwide on a wide range of environmental risk management and insurance placement services.
In 2016, she joined Armada Risk Partners as Senior Vice President and Director of Environmental, where she expanded her portfolio to include Property & Casualty Team Leader.
A native Clevelander, Ms. Andolsen earned an MBA in International Business from Baldwin Wallace University, as well as a BSBA from John Carroll University, with a dual major in Logistics and Marketing and a minor in Communications.
