Robert Blasio joined Gallagher Bassett in 2019 and leads the GB Specialty division, which centers on industries with complex risks and significant liability claims. GB Specialty manages risks in the following verticals: healthcare; executive and professional liability; products liability and life sciences; transportation; cyber; and construction.
