Madeleine Brown (BBA 07), a vice president at Fisher Brown Bottrell Insurance in Jackson, continues to excel in the risk management and insurance industry, just like she did in the classroom as an undergraduate at the University of Mississippi.
Brown said that through her course work, she learned the skills that would prepare her for the next stage in the professional world.
“I learned from my studies and course work how to properly identify corporate risk and communicate the appropriate solution to employees and employers.”
Brown noted Finance 542 as her most memorable course. She said this course taught her how to work within a group dynamic as well as hands-on application of skills.
“A large part of the course grade came from a challenging team project we had to complete by the end of the semester,” Brown said. “Completing the project taught me how to work in a team setting, evaluate corporate risk, prepare risk analysis reports, and set and meet deadlines.”
Today, Brown’s responsibilities at Fisher Brown Bottrell Insurance include business development and portfolio growth among larger employers. She has distinguished herself in the RMI industry, receiving the National Association of Health Underwriters’ prestigious Soaring Eagle award in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Brown was also named a 2015 Million Dollar Round Table Top of the Table quality member, which is recognized as one of the most prestigious honors in the industry. She was also featured in Mississippi Business Journal as a 2015 top 50 businessperson under the age of 40.
“I was very proud of all of these achievements, as each represented a new milestone in the climb that has been my career,” Brown said. “I am most proud of the recognition I received last year as a Top of the Table Employee Benefits Insurance Producer by the Million Dollar Round Table association. This award recognizes a higher level of production for members that qualify for Million Dollar Round Table, not only nationally but worldwide.”
Brown said she has been humbled with her success in the industry and that this recognition will inspire her to strive for other goals and recognition.
“Achieving this award was a goal that I wanted to accomplish at some point in my career, and I was lucky enough to do it in 2015. I continue to be driven to further my career and assist employers with their employee benefit planning.”
