Paul Johnson, CPCU, CWCA
Senior Vice President
One of the reasons Paul Johnson believes he is able to help clients save money is because Horton allows him to bring so many tools to the table.
“The support and resources of Horton has made the difference for me,” Paul said. “Whether it is claims advocacy, surety, legal assistance or our affiliation with Network Safety Consultants, the Horton difference is clear.”
Paul came to Horton's Risk Management Services division in Chicago with more than 15 years of experience in the insurance industry. New Business Development is one of his responsibilities; a process he feels is unique to Horton and is also a big factor to why he landed there.
“I have a huge support team here,” Paul said. “They help me manage my time and my clients better.”
Paul has earned his Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Certified Workers Compensation Advisor (CWCA) designations. Paul specializes in risk management for mid market businesses with an emphasis in the Food industry and Private Equity. His strengths include serving his clients as an advisor – much more than a broker responsible for marketing a case to appropriate insurance carriers. He credits the client service team behind him for his ability to quickly deliver an array of resources.
When asked about his biggest success to date, he points out an audit that saved a transportation client $130,000 on a $400,000 workers compensation premium.
Paul grew up in Lawrence, Kansas and attended Benedictine College. He resides in Winnetka with his wife and five children. Paul enjoys playing basketball, tennis and golf. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Springboard Foundation, which supports after-school programs for underprivileged children.
