For Catherine Hughes-Fury, it all began with a love of typing. After her job as an office assistant, she joined J. Michael Falvey at Falvey Cargo Underwriting as the second employee in 1996. Since then, she’s been everything from an underwriting technician, to claims specialist, to underwriter, and now Senior Vice President, Underwriting and Cargo Operations at FALVEY INSURANCE GROUP, specialized experts for marine insurance with teams around the globe, worldwide network of customers, and best-in-class reputation.

In addition to producing and retaining a profitable book of business, Catherine works on cargo operations policies, procedures, and best practices while the team provides underwriting service support and policy documentation. “It’s so much more than a transaction – it’s a promise to perform,” says Catherine, who underwrites risks and makes million-dollar decisions on behalf of their underwriters.

While not many women were in this industry when Catherine started, she’s proud to see that change; today, 50% of Falvey’s employees are women. “I’m grateful for the people I work with who take such pride and integrity in their roles.”
