Mrs. Rohan has over 30 years experience as a specialist in the Entertainment Insurance Industry.  She is highly respected by her clients, peers, colleagues and especially the entertainment insurance carriers which bodes well for the clients she represents.  Before starting NFR & Associates Entertainment Insurance Solutions she was working at Wells Fargo Insurance Services since 2003. The core focus at Wells was to develop new entertainment business while retaining the existing entertainment client base.   Mrs. Rohan has created comprehensive insurance programs for all facets of the entertainment industry including motion picture, television, music touring, corporate videos, commercials, music videos, promoters, performers, touring entertainers, special effects companies, rental house companies, post production companies, payroll services, event companies and all ancillary entertainment.

During Mrs. Rohan ten years at Aon/Albert G. Ruben Insurances Services this entertainment brokerage company brokered the majority of the leading productions companies in Hollywood including the major film studios and an impressive client list of independent film companies.  Mrs. Rohan role involved retention of these clients while developing additional products to incorporate the newest addition to the industry of Reality Television.  In 2001, Mrs. Rohan was the first broker in the United States to get insurance carriers to understand the complexity of newly developed TV idea…Reality Television.  Mrs. Rohan created the guidelines (that are still used by all entertainment insurance carriers today) to minimize risk and to carefully underwrite the projects.  She brokered the insurance for the first American Television Reality shows for NBC “Fear Factor” and CBS “Survivor”.  At Aon's sister company we retained the largest broker/client base of Major Film Studios, Music Labels, Touring Performers, Theatrical Entertainment, Special Event, Ancillary Entertainment and an impressive list of Independent Television companies. During this time in 1996 Mrs. Rohan role and responsibilities required her to underwrite each assigned brokers entertainment submissions and assist executive management in account retention and secure orders of profitable renewable business.
