Karin Venegas, HIGGINBOTHAM
Executive vice president
Karin Venegas is one of the youngest executive vice presidents at Higginbotham and continues to rapidly grow the company’s property & casualty book. Venegas began her insurance career in 2013 when she joined Higginbotham’s production team as an associate. After just one year of production, she was named Top Producer for Revenue Growth – Percentage out of approximately 200 producers. In 2018, she was promoted to executive vice president and earned a spot on IBA’s Hot 100 list, a feat she repeated in 2019.
Venegas far exceeds her growth goals every year, and 2019 is no different – by the end of the second quarter, she had already met 100% of her revenue goal. She diligently educates her clients on ways to manage their risk and build an insurance program that complements their risk threshold, an approach that requires her to stay constantly up-to-date on industry changes and new products. Venegas is also part of Higginbotham’s recruitment team and participates in the Higg U training program, mentoring new producers as they begin their careers.
