Janet Smith, Bailey Special Risk
Bailey Special Risk
Specialty: Property and real estate
Janet Smith’s insurance career began more than 25 years ago at a wholesale brokerage in Nashville. After four years there, she moved to help start another brokerage: Bailey Special Risk [BSR]. In 2009, Smith had the opportunity to purchase BSR; as the current president, she continues to market the company’s products and services, educate clients and agents on coverage, assist in strategic risk placement, and work extensively with insurance carriers to keep BSR at the forefront of knowledge.
Recently, Smith and her staff secured a contract with the National Rural Water Association to be the sole provider to rural water utility districts and water systems in all 50 states, offering a data breach and cybersecurity program that’s structured to provide coverages for water utilities with unique exposures.
