Employer Stop Loss Expansion

Summit Re has expanded its self-funded marketing and underwriting staff and opened regional offices to provide even better service to you.

Meet Allen Engen

Allen Engen joined us as Regional Vice President in July 2006. Allen has more than 14 years of experience in employer stop loss and health care risk management, specifically in underwriting and sales. He brings a tremendous amount of energy to Summit Re and has hit the ground running. Allen’s clients appreciate his focus on meeting their needs and his ability to seek solutions that may fall “outside the box.” When not at work, he is very active in Boy Scouts and enjoys golfing and fishing.
