Dan Pope, Senior Vice President of Underwriting for Old Republic Surety, recently joined NASBP “Let’s Get Surety” podcast hosts Kat Shamapande and Mark McCallum for episode No. 59 about relationships in the surety business.
The hosts asked Pope to define a relationship-based surety. It’s “a surety that’s in the business for the long haul, both in the relationship with the contractor … and the producer,” said Pope, “but also being a steady factor in the market.”
He added that the measure of success “is being able to work out a good relationship between the contractor, the surety, the field person, and the underwriter behind the scenes. It all comes down to open communication and trust.”
