Dr. Cynthia Garbrecht

Online Instructor

My name is Dr. Cynthia Garbrecht; call me Cyndee. I live in a small town about 45 minutes northwest of Chicago. I am married and have three adult children and seven grandchildren. I have been in the insurance industry for over 30 years and my current title is Vice President Cargo Claims Administration.
I currently work for a division of a syndicate of Lloyds of London who is owned by Munich Re; the largest reinsurance company in the world. We are more than an insurance broker; we are also an underwriter and an insurance company. My role consists of managing a nationwide team who adjusts all kinds of insurance claims related to transportation. Basically any and all goods shipped in and around the world is the focus of our claims. Our clients are freight forwarders, shippers, and customs brokers. My role is very interesting, but can be challenging. I love my work because it combines many of my favorite things to do; customer service, investigation and research.
I received my degrees from the University of Phoenix and I am just in the process of completing my dissertation. I enjoy teaching online because I enjoy meeting some of the most wonderful students who are looking to make a difference in the world.
