Glatfelter Religious Practice Adds New Large Account Market, Names President

Glatfelter Program Managers (GPM), a business unit dedicated to Glatfelter Insurance Group’s program business, has announced Shawn T. Yingling has joined the company as president of Glatfelter Religious Practice.

Yingling has worked in the insurance industry for 24 years, with all 24 years in program business. He began his career at Glatfelter in 1988 as a commercial underwriting specialist for the VFIS program, and then joined the claims department as a liability claims representative.

Yingling later was promoted to regional marketing representative for Glatfelter’s Ambulance Insurance Services, served as a producer for VFIS and then was promoted to Pennsylvania marketing and sales manager. Most recently he served as vice president for a New York-based program manager.

Glatfelter Religious Practice also announced a new relationship with Church Mutual. Glatfelter will market Church Mutual nationally on an open brokerage basis.

“We are looking for larger religious organizations that generate an estimated $50,000 in all lines including workers’ compensation written premium. We don’t need to have $50,000 of estimated premium to bind the account; the account needs $50,000 in estimated written premium to be eligible,” Yingling said.
