Dedicated to both her insurance law practice and practice as an umpire, arbitrator and mediator, Susan E. Mack has substantial senior executive experience in both the life/health and property/casualty sectors. She has served as an officer for both professional reinsurers (Transmerica Re and St. Paul Re) and for cedents (Aetna, Royal Neighbors of America and The Main Street America Group). Known best as a General Counsel, she has headed Claims (both life/health and property/casualty), Treaties and an Accident and Health profit center. A career milestone was being one of the founding directors of ARIAS-US.
A graduate of Dartmouth College and Boston College Law School, Ms. Mack's insurance and reinsurance career spans 25 years. She is well known for having delivered over 50 presentations regarding insurance and reinsurance topics. Venues have included the Robert Strain contract wording seminars, American Council of Life Insurer conferences, HB Insurance and Reinsurance Conferences and the Reinsurance Association of America. In addition to presenting her thoughts as to how to improve the alternative dispute resolution process, she has addressed such substantive issues such as:
-asbestos claims and their allocation,
-insurance and reinsurance occurrence presentations,
-the application of aggregate extension clauses,
-extra-contractual obligations and excess of policy limits clauses,
-issues as to managing general agents and third party administrators, and
-regulatory issues and reinsurer insolvencies.
Among her publications are Building on the Beginnings: Revisiting the Formation of ARIAS (ARIAS-US Quarterly Vol. 19, No 4) and Mastering Life Reinsurance (Mealey's Litigation Reports-Reinsurance, January 2015).
