Rebecca Roberts, Associate vice president and managing director, Burns & Wilcox
Burns & Wilcox
Specialty: Commercial Transportation
With more than 25 years of experience, Rebecca Roberts’ areas of expertise include auto liability, physical damage, cargo, and excess and umbrella policies related to trucking, public auto, dump trucks, tow trucks and general commercial auto exposures. Since Joining Burns & Wilcox, Roberts has built out the company’s auto liability offerings in the Midwest. Her efforts have netted her team multiple awards, including the state and national Professional Insurance Agents MGA of the Year Award.
In a space with many exposures, Roberts takes challenges head-on to deliver coverage to her clients. “The items we insure are moving targets, which are frequently exposed to inclement weather, congested interstates, road construction, changing governmental regulations, emerging technology and driver shortages,” she says. “Whether it be a trucking company delivering consumer products or a limo taking people to a special event, it is very rewarding to provide these entrepreneurs the insurance coverage they need to stay in business.” In addition to her role at Burns & Wilcox, Roberts teaches continuing education courses and currently sits on the boards of directors for the Motor Carrier Insurance Education Foundation and Brendanwood Financial Brokerage.
