Alliant Specialty executive recognized for significant achievements in insurance brokerage

NEWPORT BEACH, CA — Alex Littlejohn, Managing Director, Alliant Specialty Broking, has been named a 2021 Woman to Watch by Business Insurance. An established insurance professional, Littlejohn was honored for her ability to provide complex risk solutions and strategize on large-scale insurance placements, in addition to her devotion to the industry and its need for advancement of women.

“Alex’s talent and leadership truly sets her apart from her peers,” said Tom Corbett, Chairman and CEO of Alliant. “Her ability to solve complex risks, coupled with her exceptional leadership and vision, sets an inspiring example of success at Alliant and in the greater insurance industry.”

Business Insurance started the program in 2006 to recognize women leaders doing outstanding work in risk management and commercial insurance. Business Insurance readers nominated candidates for Women to Watch, and a panel of Business Insurance editors selected the honorees based on those nominations. Nominations are evaluated on four criteria: recent professional accomplishments, expertise, leadership and future career prospects. Littlejohn was selected as one of 30 honorees.
