Courtney Murphree, Brown & Riding
Assistant vice president, transportation broker
Brown & Riding
Courtney Murphree began her insurance career as an underwriting assistant at Brown & Riding in 2012. After two years, she realized she was better suited as a broker and has since served as a production assistant, production associate and associate broker. In 2019, she became a broker and assistant vice president, specializing in primary and excess transportation.
Recently, Murphree was selected for the 2020 Midwest Ascending Stars, a program for which just 11 leaders from the contract binding and brokerage community are chosen annually. Dedicated to growing as a specialist, Murphree is actively pursuing her Transportation Risk Specialist (TRS) designation from the Motor Carrier Insurance Education Foundation.
“The trucking community is extremely important, now more than ever,” she says. “They move necessary goods, including the food we eat and the supplies we need, and helping them has a real impact on the economy, as well as families. I find it personally rewarding to be a part of that.”
