Texas Commissioner of Insurance Juila Rathgeber recently appointed Express Energy Services’ Director of Risk and Insurance Cynthia Vickers to serve as a representative to the Texas Surplus Lines Stamping Office Board of Directors. The nine member board consists of four members representing the general public and five members representing the surplus lines industry. Vickers’ three year term began January 1, 2014.
“I am quite honored to be selected for this appointment,” said Vickers. “There are many highly qualified risk management specialists in Texas, and I am humbled to know that my name was even on the list, much less being selected to the board.”
Vickers, a 20-year casualty insurance industry veteran, has been the Risk and Insurance Director for Express for two years. In addition to her work at Express, she is a member of the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Women’s Energy Network and Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters Society.
“We are very proud of Cindi to be selected for this prestigious board appointment,” said Mario Hernandez, chief financial officer, Express Energy Services. “She embodies our SPIRE philosophy and represents Express positively not only in her area of expertise but also in the community.”
There were two other appointees named to the board in addition to Express’ Vickers.
“These new board members have stepped up to answer the call to service,” said Commissioner Rathgeber. “I truly appreciate their time and experience.”
The Surplus Lines Stamping Office is responsible for receiving, recording, and reviewing surplus lines insurance policies. Its board of directors provides the Commissioner with an evaluation of the eligibility of each surplus lines insurance contract and surplus lines insurer.
