Walter Mather Award
2013 Award Winner
ABC is pleased to announce Susan Aselage from Sabreliner Corporation as the 2013 Walter Mather Award winner. Susan was recognized for this award at the ABC Annual Conference in San Diego, California in September 2013. She was nominated and chosen by the ABC Awards Panel comprised of a select group of Trustees, Brokers, and Lead Underwriters.
Awards panel Chair, Rick Broderick, noted, There is no one more deserving for this award than Susan. She has been on the Board of Trustees since 1991. That is more than 22 years of service. Susan's participation has included a number of roles and in particular she has served as Treasurer for 14 years. Susan's knowledge and experience have made her indispensable at board meetings and we want her to know that her many years of support are appreciated by all of us. We are delighted to see her recognized for her contributions.
As Susan was unable to accept the award in person she prepared the following statement that was read at the 2013 Annual Conference during the awards ceremony. "I am very honored to have been chosen to receive the Walter Mather Award. Since becoming a Trustee over 20 years ago, ABC has persevered through unprecedented volatility in the market; during this period, it has continued to make innovative changes and thus maintain its premier position as the leader in the aviation insurance market. This has been accomplished through the hard work and coordination of its underwriters, brokers, lawyers, and trustees. I look forward to the next 25 years with ABC!"
ABC and Cooper Gay & Co Ltd are delighted to bestow the award in its second year to Susan who has held the longest board position in ABC history.
