Big I Education Director Boggs Takes on Expanded Role in Risk Management

January 8, 2020

Chris Boggs, executive director of education for the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (Big I), is adding risk management to his title and responsibilities.

Boggs’s new role combines his current position of Big I Virtual University executive director, in which he leads the university in offering education and research, with directorship in Big I Advantage, where he will be responsible for the trade group’s professional liability risk management strategy.

Big I Advantage is a for-profit subsidiary of IIABA that operates an insurance agency for the group’s professional liability program, its Big “I” Markets, personal umbrella and flood programs, and oversees $121 million in retirement assets. In his new role, Boggs will be responsible for the risk management strategy within the Big I’s professional liability program for agencies, states and association members.

Madelyn Flannagan, Big I vice president of agent development, education and research, said Boggs is well-qualified to take on the new responsibilities. “Not only is he an industry authority on risk management strategies,” she said, ” Chris’ background in education and research will continue to drive the highest quality of service to our members, state associations and insurance company partners.”

During his career, he has authored more than 1,000 insurance and risk management-related articles on a range of topics and has written 15 insurance and risk management books.
