Brown & Riding
Specialty: Construction, Real Estate, Environmental and Product Liability
An experienced wholesale insurance broker, David Chipp specializes in construction, real estate, environmental and product liability. Chipp began his insurance career in 1999 at an independent insurance program managing firm. He became a personal lines wholesale broker in 2005, then moved to the commercial side in 2007, where he was given a small portfolio that he was able to grow tenfold.
“I recently made the decision to focus on casualty accounts because I saw the value in being an expert in one coverage line,” Chipp says. “Retail brokers with larger and more sophisticated clients are expecting expertise at a greater level. This expertise is important because how an opportunity is presented to insurance carriers can make all the difference between a quote and a declination.”
