Terry is the Pacific Regional Underwriting Manager at Sovereign Insurance, where she leads the Vancouver team to bring creative risk solutions to the BC marketplace. With over 30 years in the commercial insurance industry, she spent extensive time on the broker side before shifting to underwriting.
Terry started her career at Reed Shaw Stenhouse, now Aon, in Calgary, handling the brokering of many large commercial Automobile, Property and Casualty accounts. After 13 years, she moved to Morris & Mackenzie, who then relocated her to Vancouver where she managed several large Oil and Gas and Mining clients. A few years later, her interest in underwriting led her to Chubb Insurance, where she led the Casualty, Technology and Energy teams. Her time at Chubb gave her exposure to the complexities of underwriting large multinational exposures and facilitating global admitted placements.
Terry joined Sovereign in 2009 as a Casualty Specialist, before transitioning to Underwriting Manager in 2011. In this role, Terry is responsible for the underwriting team, the underwriting results and broker relationships within the BC territory.
Terry has her Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation.
When Terry isn’t working, she enjoys hiking, golf, cooking and travelling. And over the past few years, Terry has taken on team leadership roles for the Canadian Cancer Relay for Life and Children’s Wish Hero’s Challenge events.
