Accepting the first job he did out of college proved to be a great decision for Tom Stripp, as he now leads the team at BC Underwriting, the underwriting division of Bennett Christmas Insurance Brokers, as the firm’s managing director.
Formed just three years ago, BC Underwriting is now responsible for generating more than a third of Bennett Christmas’ GWP, a feat that would not have been attained without Stripp’ leadership.
An industry peer comments that Stripp is “passionate about dispelling the image of insurance as being ‘pale, stale, male and boring’ and encourages others to follow in his footsteps. He goes out of his way to foster an environment that’s not just supremely productive – his team of nine grew the business by 51% last year – but also fun.”
“Do not dismiss insurance as a career. At the end of the day, insurance is a part of everyday life; therefore, there is always a need. Career opportunities are endless with hard work, commitment and willingness to learn.”
