Gregory Schilz

Executive Vice President and Environmental Practice Leader

San Francisco, CA

Greg has over thirty years of experience as a specialty environmental broker and risk consultant. He is currently a CAC Executive Vice President and leads the CAC Environmental practice. He has served clients on a global basis, placing over 3,000 PLL policies in his career while pioneering the use of cost-cap insurance. He has worked on some of the largest Superfunds sites, such as Iron Mtn and Fox River, a former Army Ammunition depot and redevelopment of a hazardous waste landfill into residential.

He is widely regarded as a thought leader in the industry and works with private equity firms and developers who need to mitigate the risk associated with their asset purchases, divestitures, and the development of Brownfield properties. He also helps lenders, environmental consultants, manufacturing companies, and municipalities mitigate their environmental liabilities, often in the context of corporate and real estate transactions.

Prior to joining CAC, Greg held similar positions at several other major brokerage firms. Over the years, Greg has continued to work with many of the same clients helping to obtain favorable terms, negotiate and draft policy language which best supported the eventual risk transfer process (e.g., liability transfer agreements, stock purchase agreements, and purchase and sale agreements), and he continues to develop innovative solutions for clients utilizing environmental insurance and risk management

Greg holds a bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University.
