Bethany is a client executive in our Portland Commercial Department. She manages all administrative aspects of the insurance program for some of our largest, most high-profile, and technically complex clients. She is a primary contact for client risk managers and senior-level management. Bethany works directly with these folks in all aspects of their insurance program needs, providing proactive strategies for coverage placement, development of policy contracts, and solutions to satisfy their continuing insurance requirements.

Bethany has construction industry expertise, managing a diverse cross-section of key accounts. Her skill in coordinating insurance submissions on large, complex accounts is highly valued by our account teams and clients alike. Bethany’s capabilities include strong negotiation skills that result in breadth of coverage and competitive pricing.

Bethany began her insurance carrier in 1992 for a small independent agency in Roseburg, Oregon, before moving to Sacramento, CA, where she spent some time working on the life and long-term care side of the insurance business. She moved to Portland in 2003, returning to the P&C side but continuing to work with independent agencies. She joined Parker, Smith & Feek in 2023. Bethany has a passion for all things management liability, especially related to the nuances of cyber liability.

Bethany is an active volunteer with the Cascade AIDS Project and has participated in their annual art auction and many other fundraising events.
