Beecher Carlson names CEO and COO


Specialised large account insurance broker Beecher Carlson Insurance Services has promoted Joseph Siech to CEO and B. Scott Davis to COO.

Siech has assumed the role of CEO from Steve Denton, who has departed the company to pursue other opportunities. He is responsible for planning and directing the execution of Beecher Carlson’s client services and growth initiatives as well as guiding the development of short and long-term financial goals.

“We have some of the greatest talent in the industry. My job is simple: continue to work with our existing leadership team to determine what their teams need to best service their clients and then figure out a way to make that happen," said Siech.

Siech has worked at Beecher Carlson since 2005, and prior to that was a property underwriter for Arkwright Mutual and advanced by developing and servicing a large book of risk management clients for Hobbs Group, which later became HRH in 2002.

Davis will oversee operational functions in the newly created COO role, while retaining his position as president, property and casualty.

“I’m very excited to work with the leadership team to discover ways to increase operational efficiencies by reducing complexity while enhancing value for our clients and teammates,” said Scott. “We take pride in making every client experience meaningful and will be refocusing our efforts on creating innovation solutions for them.”

Davis also joined Beecher Carlson 13 years ago, and prior to that served as senior vice president as Willis of Tennessee. His experience also includes serving as President and CEO of Lockton-TN prior to selling that entity in 1997.
