Fowler Receives Honorary Alumni Award from UNCC’s Belk College of Business
Raleigh, NC - Builders Mutual is excited to announce that Ross Fowler, Vice President of Underwriting, received the Honorary Alumni Award from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Belk College of Business. He was honored on November 3 during the virtual 2021 Belk College of Business Alumni Awards ceremony.
Ross is a member of the Belk College Risk Management and Insurance Advisory Board and founded the annual Risk Management and Insurance Golf Tournament. The tournament, in its fourth year, has raised $195,000 to create financial support from industry partners for student scholarships. Proceeds provide critically important funding to students to enable them to complete their degree or navigate unexpected emergency expenses. Additionally, Ross provides ongoing mentorship and is an invaluable example of servant leadership.
“We are proud of Ross’ dedication and continued support of the Belk College of Business,” stated Mike Gerber, President and CEO of Builders Mutual. “His specific contributions to the Risk Management and Insurance program speaks volumes about his dedication to the future of the insurance industry.”
Ross joined Builders Mutual in 2012 as Assistant Vice President of Underwriting and was promoted to Vice President in 2019. He has more than 37 years of underwriting, sales and marketing experience. Ross feels strongly about servant leadership and believes that the more you grow in your career, the more you should serve and give back.
The Honorary Alumni Award recognizes individuals who, while not graduates of the Belk College, have made significant contributions to its leadership, vision and educational mission.
