Patrick Wraight

Patrick Wraight is the director of Insurance Journal’s Academy of Insurance. As such, he sees himself as the senior brand promoter of the Academy. His goal is to help the industry to see the Academy the way he sees it: as a valued partner in the training and development of insurance professionals.

He started his insurance career as a commercial underwriter for an MGA that wrote fire departments, ambulance companies, home medical equipment dealers and other niche markets. It was there that he also started his journey in insurance education. He designed and implemented a new underwriter training program.

From there, he moved to one of the largest Florida-based property insurers to become an underwriter trainer. While there, his role expanded beyond classroom and online training to become a learning consultant. He spent time with his customers to determine their learning needs and develop a plan to meet those needs.

Wraight has earned several industry designations:

CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor)
CRM (Certified Risk Manager)
CISR (Certified Insurance Service Representative)
AU (Associate in Commercial Underwriting)
AINS (Associate in General Insurance)

When he’s not working, he loves to spend time with his family, traveling with his beloved and guiding their adult sons through adulthood.

No. He didn’t move them again to join the Academy. They are still in Florida, for now.

A Response to Some Insurtech Claims

There’s a popular word this year that I’m really tired of. It may not be bothering you so much, but I’ve read it so much that it’s become this year’s “it is what it is” for me. “Disruptive”; adjective; relating to or noting a new product, service or idea that radically changes an industry or […]
