Inspirien is pleased to welcome Stephanie Dozier to the leadership team, as Assistant Vice President of Underwriting.

After a successful 18 years in her previous role as Director of Underwriting for a large medical malpractice carrier, Ms. Dozier is enjoying a new professional chapter.  With Inspirien, she has found a collaborative environment where she feels she can make a real impact. “There’s a strong sense of working, learning and growing together,” she says.

Ms. Dozier will be spearheading the Underwriting activities, helping Inspirien to enhance and develop its robust standing as an MGA, managing a number of professional liability and workers’ compensation businesses, carriers and funds. From streamlining and automating some of the processes and identifying potential efficiencies, Ms. Dozier will oversee the effort to define what risk appetite looks like for underwriting at Inspirien.

“We should be easy to do business with. I love it when I find a company that prioritizes customer engagement.” Ms. Dozier says of her plans to develop a strong proactive strategy going forward.

CEO Margaret Nekic describes underwriting “as a blend of both art and science which Stephanie has been able to master through her career.”

“We are pleased to have someone who can carefully balance the risk equation to bring success to both the customer and the company.  Even with the company’s tremendous growth in recent years, we expect that to accelerate even further with additional depth in one of our key service offerings, underwriting. We are excited to have her join our vision to inspire unique ideas to help manage our partner’s risk.”

Ms. Dozier’s passion for insurance was piqued during a summer internship at the age of 17. She began by immersing herself in the field, assisting at a boutique firm when she wasn’t studying or in class. But after her then-mentor was unexpectedly called away, the opportunity arose to accelerate her career growth — she promptly switched her major to Risk Management and hasn’t looked back since. She knew she would be in the insurance business for life.
