TAMPA, FL—Real estate firm Franklin Street reports that it has hired Tom Kersting, formerly of Aon Risk Services of London, as president of insurance services.
In his new post at Franklin Street, Kersting will be responsible for the operational and financial performance as well as business development for the division—overseeing a portfolio that insures more than $10 billion in property values. He will be based out of the firm’s Tampa office.
At Aon Risk Services of London, he led broking teams in the design of loss sensitive insurance solutions for companies ranging in revenues from $25 million to $1 billion. His project work involved complex placements for property portfolios up to 14 million square feet of office, medical, and multifamily real estate. His clients ranged from private and public companies, trusts, cooperative marketing organizations, private equity, institutional management, and self-insured funds.
Franklin Street CEO Andrew Wright says Kersting’s background in both regional and national brokerages will be valuable as the company’s Insurance Services division continues to expand toward being a coast-to-coast service provider.
“Tom is an ideal match for our company culture,” Wright says. “His energy and drive make him the perfect candidate to lead our insurance team into new markets and replicate our current success.” View PDF
