Stephen Johnson exemplified the attributes that earned him this award by beginning his acceptance speech with praise for this year’s recipients of the Trish Getty Scholarship award. He led an enthusiastic round of applause for Ashley Myers and Samantha String (both students at Saint Joseph’s University) and the prospect of a future in the insurance business that includes such bright talent. He believes in using his experience and skills to facilitate creative and innovative change in the industry and we could all witness that commitment to the industry through his immediate support of AIRROC’s mission to support the next generation.
Stephen is currently serving industry clients in his practice with Stradley Ronon, where he advises clients on insurance and insurer-related issues with a focus on regulatory matters. Specifically, he assists clients in managing and restructuring their organizations to simplify operations and make better use of capital. While serving as Deputy Insurance Commissioner for the Pennsylvania Insurance Department’s Office of Corporate and Financial Regulation from 1998-2015, he developed a reputation for a being a “facilitator,” known for his ability to balance market and administrative solutions that resulted in more efficient mechanisms to wind down estates to the benefit of policyholders and taxpayers.
Stephen’s resume includes numerous committees, task forces, and financial working groups of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). He currently serves on advisory councils for both Saint Joseph’s University’s Academy of Risk Management and Insurance and AIRROC.
