Senior account executive
JACOBI BRIEN INSURANCE
Brandi Hitchens began her insurance career in personal lines at the age of 19. She served as a team leader for a larger brokerage in rural Nova Scotia for a decade, dealing primarily with commercial clients in the marine industry. She moved to the Halifax area in 2006 and saw an opportunity to switch to the commercial side as an account executive, focusing on sales and new business generation.
Hitchens seeks insights into her clients’ varied exposures to provide solid solutions and enable them to make an educated decision on which coverage to secure. “I always strive to build a relationship with my clients by providing strong risk management strategies and tools to mitigate losses,” she says. “Each plan is tailored to each client’s individual needs and timeline.”
Over the years, Hitchens has worked on files that have included wind farms, biomass facilities, mining, and international property and liability. Her current focus is on growing her experience in Atlantic Canada’s major industries, including manufacturing, construction, cannabis production and hospitality
