Snapp & Associates Senior Vice President Dan Beck has been named to Insurance Business America’s (IBA) prestigious Top Retail Brokers list for 2023. Beck is one of only 51 insurance professionals named to the annual national list which highlights some of the best in the US insurance industry, according to the organization.
To earn a place among IBA’s Top Retail Brokers of 2023, awardees are peer nominated and peer selected. To be considered for the award, nominees needed to generate at least $1 million in premium revenue during 2022, with at least 50% of that revenue deriving from commercial property and casualty policies. This accomplishment is particularly impressive considering the insurance industry, like many others, has been under incredible financial strain due to the pandemic and rising claims costs across all lines of business.
As quoted in the IBA report, Peter Miller, President and CEO of The Institutes, says a retail broker needs to combine expertise and industry knowledge as well as a commitment to building and strengthening relationships with both clients and insurance carriers in order to be successful in the insurance industry.
Founded in 1947, Snapp & Associates is one of San Diego’s top insurance brokerages. Beck has been a cornerstone of the firm’s growth over the past 20 years. “We are thrilled to see Dan named to the top brokers list,” said Snapp & Associates President John Toon. “Dan drives business by focusing on the importance of relationships with his client base. Along with our team, he utilizes modern technological platforms and dedicated service providers giving our clients the level of risk management, insurance planning and employee benefits services they need to protect their assets and attract and retain employees,” Toon added.
Beck provides commercial property and casualty insurance to a broad spectrum of clients with a focus on hospitality, construction and property management. Mark Cirillo with Verant Hospitality Group stated, “Dan has been a key asset to our company’s risk management and asset protection over the past 20 years. He’s consistently reliable, accessible and forward thinking. We are grateful for his services and congratulate him on this award.”
Based on his industry expertise and experience, Beck has developed a reputation for delivering tailored insurance solutions, a deep understanding of market trends and a commitment to outstanding customer service. His ability to navigate complex insurance landscapes and forge meaningful connections has enabled him to emerge as a top-performing retail broker.
