Patrick O’Doherty, Vice President at ProAssurance, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in insurance.
With nearly 30 years of experience to his credit, Mr. O’Doherty has excelled as the vice president of excess and surplus lines with ProAssurance since 2001. He previously served with the Frontier Insurance Group Inc. as the associate vice president of healthcare underwriting from 1998 to 2001. Prior to these positions, he was appointed as a senior underwriter with the Medical Mutual Insurance Company of Maine from 1994 to 1998. Mr. O’Doherty began his career analyzing medical malpractice claims for Caronia in 1987.
Before embarking on his professional path, Mr. O’Doherty pursued an education at the Catholic University of America, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in biology in 1984. He concluded his studies at Georgetown University, where he completed master’s coursework in physiology between 1984 and 1987. In addition to these accomplishments, Mr. O’Doherty obtained his registration as a professional liability underwriter.
The son of a successful Irish immigrant who worked with the Central Intelligence Agency and invented the first treatment for Parkinsonism, Mr. O’Doherty was greatly influenced by his father, who raised him to develop a multifaceted skill set and exceptional work ethic. Furthermore, he is grateful to pass on his mindset and skills to his son, who is working on a burgeoning career in medicine. Initially, Mr. O’Doherty hoped to follow in his father’s footsteps in the field of medicine but became unsure of his prospects to enter medical school and pivoted toward insurance.
Beyond his primary responsibilities, Mr. O’Doherty has been active as a member of the Professional Liability Underwriting Society. Among the many highlights of his career, he is incredibly proud of his ability to assemble and foster an extraordinary and loyal team, as he has been so rarely in a position to terminate or lose anyone operating under him. Looking toward the future, Mr. O’Doherty hopes to retire and eventually transition to a consulting capacity in his field in which he can have a direct impact on the healthcare system.
