Beall Brewery Insurance is proud to announce that our newest team-member, Kristian Beall, has earned his AAI designation, and is now an Accredited Adviser in Insurance.
“Continuing education is so important in the insurance industry,” says Beall, 25.
“Anything I can do to benefit our brewery clients is worthwhile. The more I know, the better service I can offer!”
Beall earned his AAI designation through the nine-month Liberty Mutual Producer Development Program. It provides intensive instruction in everything from commercial and personal insurance to underwriting, claims, and loss control. Each 120-hour unit culminated with a test. After passing the series of nine exams, Beall emerged with the designation.
“This designation will increase his expertise—and the level of service he can offer to our clients,” says Richard Beall, principal at Beall Brewery Insurance.
A graduate of Cornell University, Kristian started his insurance career at The Hanover Insurance Group home office in Massachusetts. There he got a solid grounding in underwriting and a good understanding of risk management and claims prevention.
In 2017, he moved back to California and joined the Beall Brewery Insurance team to focus on serving craft breweries.
Focus on Craft Breweries
“It’s a unique business niche, with risk exposures that are very particular to this industry alone,” Kristian points out. “That’s why it’s so important for these businesses to work with an insurance team who really understands their business.
“Beall Brewery Insurance works with breweries of all sizes, all across the country. And we know exactly how to meet their needs. We can help them mitigate risk, and advise them so that they have the coverage they need to protect their business—and their future.”
For the Beall Brewery Insurance team, Kristian is a welcome addition.
“Our business is growing fast. It’s going to serve our brewery clients incredibly well to have an agent focusing on them exclusively,” says Richard.
“And for me personally, it’s exciting to have my son as part of a team. He makes the fifth generation of our family to go into the insurance business!”
A craft beer aficionado, Kristian enjoys going tasting whenever he travels. He loves representing Beall Brewery Insurance at craft beer events across the country.
“It’s a diverse and growing market,” Kristian says. “The enthusiastic entrepreneurs who create such unique brews deserve the highest level of protection for their businesses—and the highest level of service.
“With my new designation, that’s what I’m here to provide.”
