Atlanta, April 29, 2014 – Bill Moore, Vice President of Underwriting and Medical for Munich American Reassurance Company, was recognized by, the online edition of National Underwriter, as one of the Top 24 Creative People in Insurance.


In recognizing Bill and the other 23 other professionals representing brokers, advisors, insurance carriers, and reinsurers, says, “In the midst of what is arguably the most creative era insurance has seen, we present 24 innovators who are leading the charge in product development, underwriting, marketing strategy, research, and sales distribution.”


Bill joined Munich Re in 2008 as Chief Underwriter, and has guided the Underwriting and Medical department through many changes. Through the implementation of a new underwriting workflow and imaging system, along with the creation of a Risk Management Unit and concierge underwriting team, productivity nearly doubled and turnaround time was cut in half. In 2010, under Bill’s guidance, the EDGE life and disability underwriting manuals were launched, and have become one of the easiest-to-use manuals in the industry.


“Bill’s recognition as one of the top creative people in insurance comes as no surprise to those of us that work with him,” says Mike DeKoning, CEO for Munich American Reassurance Company. “For the past five years, he has encouraged our Underwriting and Medical teams to develop creative solutions in meeting our client expectations and our business needs.”


Bill’s started his career as a biology teacher before he transitioned to an underwriter within the reinsurance division of a direct insurer.


“This recognition means a tremendous amount to me, but this is an affirmation of the great work done by the entire Underwriting and Medical teams.” says Bill Moore. “By challenging ourselves each day, we are able to take an unique view of our work and ask how we can do things creatively.”
