Ben Outland
Underwriter

 

Ben joined the Evolve MGA team in June of 2019, shortly after graduating with distinction from Virginia Military Institute. At VMI, he received a B.A. in English & Rhetoric, where he learned the art of analyzing and understanding text in multiple mediums. Outside of academia, Ben competed on the Trap and Skeet team and was President of the Ducks Unlimited Chapter, where he organized fundraisers with his classmates to benefit waterfowl conservation. Ben acquired an interest in cyber insurance and the cost implications of cyber losses after reading the details of several large-scale corporate hacks associated with his senior thesis. Ben’s attention to detail and ability to learn quickly have led to his success as an underwriter in the rapidly evolving cyber market. In his free time, he enjoys fishing, duck hunting, surfing, boating, and cheering on the Washington Redskins.
