Burnett Appointed President and CEO of Liberty Northwest

Liberty Northwest, a Liberty Mutual Agency Markets regional company, announced the appointment of Julie A. Burnett as president and CEO. She succeeds Larry Becker, who has decided to retire.

Burnett comes to Liberty Northwest from Safeco Corp., where her career spanned more than 20 years in numerous executive capacities, including field operations, field sales, and as vice president of Safeco’s Midwest Commercial Lines Division.

“As Liberty Northwest moves towards exclusively offering commercial lines to its agents, Julie is the right leader to meet the company’s growth and profitability goals, and will continue to build on the momentum and strong agency relationships that Liberty Northwest achieved under Larry Becker’s leadership,” said Scott Goodby, executive vice president, Agency Markets, and president, Regional Companies Group.

Liberty Northwest Insurance Corp. is Oregon’s largest private workers compensation insurer and is a leading property and casualty insurer with offices throughout the Northwest.
