Christine McCarthy - Scale Underwriting

Christine McCarthy


Christine McCarthy began her journey with Scale Underwriting about 3.5 years ago and is now a Senior Underwriter at the company. Before Scale, Christine worked as an Underwriting Assistant at Crum & Forster for three years. Ready for a new experience, the stars aligned, and Scale reached out to Christine just as she began her job hunt when she moved from C&F to Scale to become the company’s second employee. Since then, she’s applied her prior experience in Operations to build out processes and training materials and help the company grow to now 22 employees. On top of underwriting Management Liability insurance, Christine onboarded and managed Scale’s offshore consulting company, Spoke, to increase operational efficiency for the company and allow underwriters more time to do their job: underwriting. Christine is also the Product Manager for Scale Social, a Media Liability product tailored to influencers she launched in collaboration with Jeff Hirsch, Shraddha Nair, Madison Koestler, and Liam Gilbert. Christine loves working with people, and on top of all the experience she’s gained with her time at the company, she looks forward to applying her people skills to enhance existing broker relationships and develop new ones.
