Sheila Skipper

Regional Vice President


Last updated on August 14th, 2018

Sheila Skipper has been the Regional Vice President of Roanoke in Houston, Texas since 1997, became the Regional Vice President of our Miami office in 2010 and assumed the role as Regional Vice President of the Charleston, South Carolina office in 2015. She has over 20 years of industry experience, beginning her career at Trade Insurance. She designs and implements marketing plans to maximize quality and service while expanding our client base in her regions. As a licensed insurance broker, she specializes in cargo insurance, customs bonds, training/education and sales support for her nine state region. It is her in-depth knowledge of marine insurance that Sheila credits with making her successful at her job. As she interfaces with clients daily, she is responsible for seeing that Roanoke’s internal processes and procedures are smooth and efficient. Making it easy for customers to do business with Roanoke is a win-win situation—and that’s what Sheila does best. Sheila is an approved Lloyd’s coverholder and presently holds underwriting authority for Munich Re Syndicate, Ltd.

After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Financial Planning from Purdue University, Sheila relocated to Houston. She began her career with Roanoke in 1990. While Marine Manager, Sheila secured an alternative insurance program with the London market, giving Roanoke’s clients an alternative to domestic market coverage. During her tenure as Marine Manager, Roanoke’s Houston office sustained significant growth in cargo insurance sales, while maintaining an excellent loss ratio.

Roanoke, a division of Roanoke Insurance Group and part of Munich Re Specialty Group Ltd., operates as a specialty insurance broker focused on surety and insurance solutions for transportation intermediaries, 3PLs, customs brokers and companies with supply chains, and is a leading provider of customs bonds, marine cargo insurance and ATA Carnets for the industry.

“My job is to make sure everyone knows the primary focus of our office is to give our customers the superior attention they deserve. When we put our clients first, we inevitably do the right things!”
