As vice president of Beecher Carlson’s national casualty practice, Diane Bidek works to develop and implement innovative programs that best fit her clients’ needs. Throughout her career, she has worked alongside some of the largest companies in the US, analyzing their insurance programs and implementing solutions focused on efficiency and effectiveness.
Since first entering the industry as a production assistant and then account executive at Gallagher, Bidek has worked to hone her professional skills. This includes obtaining her MBA in finance and risk and insurance and earning CPCU and ARM designations.
“I think the risk industry is being tested in a lot of ways right now, and I hope getting into this tough market with much uncertainty really pushes for innovation in how we handle and insure risks going forward,” Bidek says. “Lately, I’ve really been interested in learning about how companies set a risk appetite and the different methods you can use to do that.”
