2017 Recognition Award

ABC recently honored Diane Gallagher with Marsh USA and Don Cooke with Hays Companies at the 2017 Spring Meeting in London.

For many years, Diane has been a dedicated aircraft products liability broker, with a loyal commitment to the ABC.  She has an excellent understanding of the ABC program and its coverage and is committed to providing her clients with the best coverage at the most competitive price.  ABC was honored to provide Diane with this recognition for her unsurpassed loyalty. 

Don has been a great ambassador and supporter of the ABC for many years.  After joining the Brokers Committee, he encouraged Hays Companies to support and develop a new concept for ABC - the U.S. Portal.  Don is dedicated to the success of the U.S. Portal.  ABC was delighted to thank and recognize Don for his enthusiasm and efforts on this new ABC coverage. 

2016 Recognition Award

ABC was pleased to celebrate several ABC supporters at the recent London Market Reception held on April 19, 2016 in The Adam Room, Lloyd's with Lloyd's Chief Executive Officer, Inga Beale among the 100+ present.

A  Recognition Award was created to acknowledge and commend individuals who have made an impact on the Aircraft Builders Council program.  The 2016 recipients were Dario Mulas Debois from Marsh, Annie Colburn from Marsh, and Rebecca Mann from Aon.  All were recognised for their 'commitment, initiative and hard work in support of ABC.'   

Rebecca was in attendance at the April 19 reception at Lloyd's where ABC President Michael Harrington and Vice President Rosalie Palazzolo-Singer presented her with a framed certificate.  Dario and Annie were unable to attend the reception, but on April 26 in The Adam Room, Lloyd's, they were presented with their certificates by the Chairman of Lloyd's, John Nelson.

2016 Initiative Award

ABC was also pleased to recognize a fourth individual at the London Market Reception held April 19, 2016 in The Adam Room, Lloyd's.  Paul Levitt from Global Aerospace received an Initiative Award.  This is bestowed upon an individual who has introduced a new idea or process for the Aircraft Builders Council with positive results.  The ABC Board of Trustees were pleased to recognize Paul's initiative of the 'thank you' letter that has been sent to renewing insureds. Although this letter is currently signed by Johnny Wadhams and Nick Brown, we are pleased to confirm that Paul is the author.

Our sincere thanks go out to all these individuals for their commitment, initiative and hard work in support of the Aircraft Builders Council.
