In this role, Laethem will grow his understanding of the challenges and strategies of insuring commercial real estate portfolios, of all product types, in the tri-county region, consisting of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. He will work closely with the team to help clients assess their needs, organize agency resources, structure competitive solutions, and, ultimately, improve a property’s operating income through reduced insurance costs.
