PEOPLE / FAVORITE THINGS
Favorite things Terrence Scali, CEO of NFP Property & Casualty Insurance Services Terrence Scali entered the insurance industry after leaving an account executive position with Coca-Cola, and he hasn’t looked back since. As CEO of National Financial Partners Property & Casualty Insurance Services, Scali is at the forefront of emerging trends like harnessing young talent and new underwriting technologies. He took the time to tell Insurance Business America what he enjoys outside of the oﬃce.
Book: I read at least one book a week for pleasure, and every day for business. When I think about my favorite book, though, I think of Lee Child’s “Persuader.” The hero, a retired military policeman, is really an American hero. Favorite thing about working in insurance: I think that in spite of a hopeful outcome of more consolidation in the industry, there are lots and lots of entrepreneurial opportunities in the industry.
Favorite sport: To watch, probably UFC ﬁghting or professional basketball. I’m a Phoenix Suns fanatic— I became an adult in Arizona. To play, tennis and golf.
Vacation spot: For me, it’s a Caribbean island beach. I’ve been all over them, and almost anywhere in the Caribbean is idyllic for me.
Favorite food: For me, it’s a great rib eye and a good cabernet—especially at Mastro’s Restaurants. Their Ocean Club location is my favorite.
Place to be: On a beach with my wife and kids.
