On track to be an industry leader of tomorrow, Te’Shounda Fleming, VP and East Regional Property Leader, Sompo GRS, recently joined a prestigious group of young professionals named to Insurance Business America (IBA)’s Hot 100 list. From rising stars who are helping transform the industry with innovative solutions to seasoned veterans who are helping steer large organizations through turbulent times, the 100 professionals who made IBA’s annual Hot 100 list for 2022 have no shortage of boldness. While their industry experience may vary, all of this year’s Insurance Business America (IBA) Hot 100 honorees have at least three things in common: a can-do attitude in the face of adversity, a solid understanding of themselves and the industry, and a willingness to extend a helping hand to the next generation of insurance professionals.
There is a synergy in who we are,” says Te’Shounda Fleming. “But the synergy goes beyond the business aspect of it; the client aspect of it is personal for me. Every client, every account, we approach uniquely, because we’re all unique, and the risk is the same way. We don’t see that there is just one way that we can create a box around it – we like to have the world as our easel.” That approach has worked wonders for Fleming and her team.
Fleming is a proponent of mentoring and is passionate about counseling and advising junior staff within the Sompo GRS business – a role she takes incredibly seriously. “There are things that are impacting the younger talent, and there is true diverse young talent that are exceptional, and I want to be a resource for them in any way I can.”
