Victoria Dearing, Vice president & broker, Breckenridge Insurance Services
Breckenridge Insurance Services
Specialty: Professional Liability
In 1992, Victoria Dearing started working for The Big I of Illinois on its agents’ E&O program. “I discovered that I loved professional liability,” she says, “and I was able to broker other lines like D&O, EPLI, school leaders, real estate agents’ E&O and even some media, and I tookadvantage of that. I have a deep-rooted love for this niche that I’ve developed over the years, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”
As a broker for Breckenridge Insurance Services, Dearing uses her diverse skills and knowledge to drive results across a range of products and programs. “Helping my agents convey the need to cover the exposures with
the different professional lines and all of the nuisances to them is sometimes challenging since I’m once removed,” Dearing says, “but if the agents and I can work together to educate insureds, we generally bind the account.”
In addition to her role at Breckenridge, Dearing took the helm this year as president of the Fort Worth CPCU Society. She is also a former steering committee member of PLUS Texas.
