While there have been many studies of succession planning, the Carrier Management/Jacobson Group survey is the only one to focus exclusively on P/C insurers, making it a valuable benchmarking resource for carriers who will ultimately be faced with a transition from one leader to the next. Survey respondents included more than 100 CEOs, board members and leaders of human resources representing a cross-section of the U.S. P/C carrier population. The typical respondent was from a small or midsize private firm. Only 13 percent of respondents reported working at publicly traded carriers. Fifty percent said their firms employed less than 100 people, and another 45 percent employed more than 100 but less than 1,000 people. The size ranges of respondents based on premium writings are captured on the accompanying chart. Fifty-nine percent of the respondents described themselves as regional carriers, while 30 percent said their firms were national, and 11 percent selected multinational as the best description of their geographic reach.
