Risk Strategies Adds Blair Wunderlich to National Fine Art Practice
Brings art history training, 10-plus years’ insurance industry experience to new role
BOSTON, July 17, 2019 -- Risk Strategies, a leading national specialty insurance brokerage and risk management and consulting firm, today announced it has added Blair Wunderlich as a Senior Account Manager and Producer to its DeWitt Stern national fine art practice.
Previously an account executive at fine art specialty insurance brokerage Aon Huntington T. Block (HTB), Wunderlich comes to the Risk Strategies DeWitt Stern fine art practice with 10 years of experience working with private collectors, galleries and museums. She was recently named to the 2019 Power Broker list by Risk & Insurance, which recognizes insurance brokers who stand out amongst their peers in industry knowledge, problem solving skills and exceptional client service.
“Risk Strategies understands that specialty knowledge is the key to delivering real client value,” said Mary Pontillo, Risk Strategies’ DeWitt Stern National Fine Art Risk Practice Leader. “Blair has exactly the right combination of experience, education and attitude that will ensure great success in the DeWitt Stern fine art practice.”
While at Aon Huntington T. Block, Wunderlich’s business development focused on museums, foundations, corporate collections, galleries and high net worth clients. In addition, she developed new policy coverage targeting younger private collectors and developed a focus on cyber risks and coverage programs.
“I am thrilled to be joining Risk Strategies’ Dewitt Stern fine art practice,” said Wunderlich. “Joining a firm that both understands the client value of true expert specialization and is structured to enable collaboration and initiative is just what I was looking for at this stage in my career.”
Prior to her time at Aon HTB, Wunderlich worked as a fine art specialist in the private client group at insurance brokerage Willis, where she focused on helping high net worth individuals and multi-generational families manage and mitigate risks associated with their fine art, jewelry and wine collections.
Wunderlich is a graduate of St. John’s College in New Mexico with a degree in philosophy and holds a Master of Arts in Old Masters from the Courtauld Institute of Art at the University of London.
