Darren Sonderman

Executive Vice President – Financial Lines Co-Practice Leader

Darren serves as Executive Vice President and is co-leader of CAC Specialty’s Financial Lines Practice. He brings nearly thirty years of underwriting and brokering experience, focused on traditional Executive Liability insurance as well as non-traditional risks including dual trigger insurance solutions, trading errors & omissions, unauthorized trading, all-risk professional liability, intellectual property, credit enhancement, credit default, technology efficacy, operational risk, anti-trust, environmental and transaction liability solutions.

Darren works with clients to leverage deep insurer relationships and complex coverage experience. He crafts and negotiates insurance that has efficiently paid hundreds of millions of dollars (without insurer litigation) when other similarly situated companies have seen insurers deny coverage for the same underlying loss events. While at McGriff, Darren was involved in and contributed to the negotiation and execution of insurance products achieving insurance recovery in excess of two billion dollars. These results have been achieved for clients across a wide range of industries, including financial services, technology, insurance and fintech.

Darren co-founded and led the Financial Services Division at McGriff, Seibels & Williams for 21 years. He previously worked in Aon’s Financial Services Group (Denver) and Chubb’s Executive Protection Group (New York and Seattle).  Darren’s clients have included Alvarez & Marsal, Arthur Andersen, Lehman Bros., Major League Baseball, Regions Financial Corp., Stryker Corp. and Encompass Health.

Darren graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelor’s degree in finance and is a licensed insurance agent in all 50 states.
