Chief operating officer
JACKSON SUMNER & ASSOCIATES
Like most kids who grew up around the insurance industry, Danielle Wade had no intention of joining the family business.
“I wanted to step out and do my own thing,” she says. “But as I learned more and more about what my father did and the relationships he had built, the more I realized that the insurance industry had a lot to offer.” Two years ago, she was promoted to COO at Jackson Sumner & Associates, a family-owned E&S specialty lines MGA based in North Carolina.
Wade has also served two terms as president of NCSLA, is immediate past present of the AAMGA UFO, currently serves as vice chair of Appalachian State’s Brantley Center advisory board and sits on East Carolina’s risk management and insurance advisory board.
