Austin, TX – Texas Mutual Insurance Company recently announced Richard Dabney as the company’s vice president (VP) of corporate underwriting—a newly created VP position within the underwriting division. Dabney will oversee the company’s corporate underwriting and underwriting support services.
“Richard’s extensive experience in underwriting and the insurance industry makes him a great choice for the VP of corporate underwriting position,” said Jeanette Ward, chief operating officer of Texas Mutual. “We are proud to have him as part of our Texas Mutual family and are excited that his knowledge and expertise will continue to drive innovation and help guide our company toward creating a stronger, safer Texas.”
Dabney’s insurance career spans nearly 30 years, 15 of which have been spent at Texas Mutual. He joined the company in 2005 as a senior underwriter at the Austin Regional Office and was quickly promoted to underwriting supervisor before ultimately making the move to corporate underwriting. Prior to joining Texas Mutual, Richard gained experience in a variety of underwriting positions for Texas for American Home, Kemper Insurance, SeaBright Insurance and American Equity Underwriters.
Dabney has also served as an expert witness on workers’ compensation policy conditions and coverage issues and he has been published in the Insurance Journal and Insurance Record.
As Texas Mutual continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, Richard has played an integral role in leading the underwriting department and ensuring that policyholders continue to maintain coverage.
