Stephanie Lockwood, AssuredPartners

Regional CFO

After years of working in public accounting, Stephanie Lockwood’s entrance into the insurance industry 10 years ago was pure happenstance. “I was ready to try my hand at being a part of what goes into shaping and driving a business instead of just dealing with the aftermath of other people’s decisions,” she says. “I knew very little about insurance or the agency/brokerage business, but was – and still am – fascinated with the entire business model.”

Lockwood says that while focusing on financial results is necessary and inescapable, true success has come from the people she’s worked for and with. “Over the past few years, I’ve seen firsthand the importance of surrounding yourself with people who are smarter than you,” she says. “I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by and to work directly with talented and accomplished people, and their success became the bar I held to account my own success. None of the moments when I’ve felt the most successful in the work that I’ve done involve a set of financial statements; all of them involve people.”
