I have known Ty for over 20 years both as a colleague and a good friend. We have worked side by side on many projects both at AIG and at Zurich. Ty possesses the greatest attributes of a chief underwriting officer, chief innovation officer and general counsel all rolled into one. He is a great leader who has the unique ability to take an idea and translate into reality providing new revenue streams for any company fortunate enough to hire him. He has my highest recommendation.
