Our people

“At Markel we hold the individual’s right to self-determination in the highest light, providing an atmosphere in which people can reach their personal potential.”

When it was written in 1986 the Markel Style memorialized how we seek to treat one another inside our own walls: honesty and fairness in all our dealings; holding the individuals right to self determination in the highest light; looking for a better way of doing things; putting aside individual concerns in the spirit of teamwork; and providing an atmosphere in which people can reach their full potential.

As part of the Markel Style, we encourage career development, celebrate a diverse workforce, and recognize associates committed to a zealous pursuit of excellence. Explore below to see the Markel Style in action.

Watch our Co-CEO Richie Whitt discuss helping employees achieve their potential within a diverse and inclusive environment.
