As a noted risk management consultant to the residential building industry, Robert K. Gore has spent almost two decades working with the top homebuilders across the nation. Bob began his underwriting career in London and later in the U.S. working on behalf of syndicates at Lloyd's of London, eventually winding up his underwriting career at AIG. Bob moved to the broking side in 1999 to work for Aon, later heading up the company's residential building practice group. Bob built a similar leading edge practice at Willis before forming his own company, Gore Lieske & Associates, with the goal of creating a less bureaucratic, more nimble firm that is dedicated to building long-term relationships with discerning clients.
Robert maintains that homebuilders "are a unique group" in that the clients are almost certain to use their insurance policies. "Understanding a builder's unique goals allows our team to tailor policies to our clients' maximum benefit. The coverage should be written in a manner that reflects the client's business model while offering the best protection the market can provide.”
From combing through policy language to negotiating policy changes, Bob insists upon attention to detail in the underwriting and management of his clients' business. "My team and I chose this very challenging specialty because we love to be engaged by our clients. Every day is interesting, and we enjoy that.”
