Business Luncheon Series

Join us for our next GACC Midwest Business Luncheon on October 3!

Topic: Navigating the Complexities of the US Insurance Market


Kathrin Howard, Global MidCorp Leader, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty

Jennifer Gavelek, Senior Vice President, Alliant Mesirow

Businesses today face more risk than ever. As our world becomes more digitized and new technologies deliver increased efficiency, it also comes with additional exposure to cyber risk. Globalization has opened up new opportunities for small and mid-sized companies, but also increases the risk to their supply chain. In this session, Kathrin Howard from Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty and Jennifer Gavelek from Alliant Mesirow will address these and other evolving exposures and provide insights on how to choose the right partners to help navigate the complexities of the US insurance market.  

We look forward to seeing you at the next Business Luncheon!

Cost: $50 for members, $65 for non-members

Please note that all sales are final.

Lunch has never been more delicious and productive.
