He has post-graduate studies in Accounting, Marketing, Management, and Leadership.
Alan has a wide range of domestic and international insurance experience in product development and product management as well as sales and distribution of Property and Casualty insurance through both independent and captive agents.
From late 2000 until January 2004 Alan served as Regional Vice President for ACE, Ltd. – Latin America (Personal Lines, Commercial Auto) based in Santiago, Chile, and then VP – International for ACE- Consumer Solutions (Personal Lines, Commercial Auto), based in Tampa, Florida. ACE, Ltd. is a multi-national insurer doing business in 53 countries worldwide. While with ACE-Latin America he partnered with International Insurance Group (IIG) in developing the ACE Tourist Auto and Watercraft Liability programs and in 2010 again partnered with IIG and ACE to develop the Mexico Homeowners/Condo programs, all of which are offered on motormexico.com.
In 2016 ACE, LTD. acquired U.S. insurance company Chubb. Because of greater brand recognition of the Chubb name, the new merged ACE, LTD.-Chubb company adopted the Chubb name and is no longer known as ACE.
From 1995 – late 2000 he was a Vice President for Prudential Property Casualty with responsibility for managing a multi-state independent insurance agency operation and a 100 seat inbound sales call center.

With this career work experience and education, in 2003 Alan decided to form his own company, Mexico Insurance Intermediaries, Inc., where he could put his business experience to good use for others who share his passion for Mexico. He has visited 26 of Mexico’s 31 states, plus the Distrito Federal, and has lived in Mexico on two occasions. He has also traveled extensively throughout South and Central America.

In 2018 his string of 33 in a row Baja 1000 races was broken. Since 2007 he has provided “chase” support to a race team in the NORRA 1000 race, carrying fuel, tires, and parts for the race car. The NORRA 1000 runs from Ensenada to San José del Cabo.
