Do you have a love for aviation and customer service? If so, we have an excellent opportunity for an Aviation Underwriter to join our team of aviation insurance professionals located in our Frederick, MD office.

Position at Tokio Marine HCC

Tokio Marine HCC is a leading specialty insurance group with offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain and Ireland, transacting business in approximately 180 countries and underwriting more than 100 classes of specialty insurance.

Avemco is a member of the Tokio Marine HCC group of companies and is a recognized leader in aviation insurance. Avemco Insurance Company is the only direct writer of aircraft insurance. That means we’re the only insurance company that connects you directly with an Aviation Insurance Specialist (underwriter) who is empowered to solve problems and approve coverage instantly instead of a middleman who simply passes your request on to somebody else. Avemco has an exciting opportunity for an Aviation Sales Underwriter in our office located in Frederick, Maryland.

Having an insurance or aviation background will be helpful to your success in this role.

In your role as the Aviation Sales Underwriter, you will be responsible for selling and supporting our product to pilots and other aviation customers throughout the United States through phone and internet sales. Your primary objective is to assist in achieving growth and profitability goals.


During the first 6-12 months on the job you can expect to:

Become proficient in understanding and explaining our insurance products.

Develop the ability to close and upsell appropriate business.

Gain advanced knowledge of different types of airplanes, industry jargon and the network of competitors and partners.


The Aviation Sales Underwriter will spend the majority of the time handling up to 40 incoming calls per day (busy season) and 20 calls per day (slower season), educating callers about our products, selling, servicing, obtaining referrals and cross-selling value add products.


If you have the insurance or aviation background we are looking for, the challenge will become an opportunity to learn our systems and how they relate to your daily tasks. We use up to six different applications and three monitor screens at any one time.


We will offer you the ability to join a company culture of trust, integrity and teamwork. You will find a competent and capable team already in place who are passionate and proud of Avemco. Sixty percent of our workforce has worked here ten years or more. You will get to travel to airshows and fly-ins all over the country as a representative of Avemco. If you are looking for your next challenging opportunity, this position is for you.
