Vince Panzera, Senior Vice President, Higginbotham
San Antonio, TX
A Vietnam War veteran with close to half a century of experience in the finance industry, Vince Panzera first started out in commercial lending in the ’70s and eventually worked his way into the insurance industry.
While working on lending requirements for auto dealer clients, Panzera came across challenges in finding competitive insurance coverage, which he saw as an opportunity to start his own agency. In 1992, he set up shop to help auto dealers minimize insurance cost through loss prevention measures, which was a unique concept at that time. Having captured this market early on, Panzera has since maintained the highest level of service, which has resulted in many clients who have stayed with the agency since its inception. Panzera joined the Higginbotham team in 2014 after a series of acquisitions.
