Underwriting Careers

Underwriting at PMA

At PMA, we recognize that every organization is unique and that the carrier-client relationship is all about joint success. To that end, we seek to partner with clients whose philosophies align with ours. Such organizations recognize the value of a proactive and disciplined approach to managing risk. They view PMA as a true partner in protecting their assets—including the safety of their people. They also stay highly engaged with PMA to prevent losses and effectively address them when they occur.

We are equally selective when it comes to our underwriting team. Valuing not only technical competence, but also personal accountability and business development acumen, PMA seeks underwriting professionals who are passionate about tackling all aspects of the job. Our underwriters are committed to building and maintaining expertise in their assigned segment and generating positive results for our company. They welcome the opportunity to be part of an integrated team that actively works to deliver tangible value to our clients. 

Because of our philosophy, consultative approach, and distinctly long-term view, PMA has a Large Account client retention rate of 90% or higher and 95% of our clients would recommend us, as measured by our independent client satisfaction surveys. Our underwriters take pride in understanding our clients’ businesses, developing effective solutions, and delivering tailored services that help drive mutual success.
