Jeffrey Branflick of Irvington joined the Northern Neck Insurance Company board in December 2017.
“Jeff has an exceptional level of skill and experience to bring to the Northern Neck board room,” said chairman of the board John H. Hunt II. “He has demonstrated his enthusiasm and commitment early with his level of engagement and preparation.”
Branflick is a former banking executive with over 25 years experience including time at HSBC, Barclays and Capital One. He most recently served as global head of finance for HSBC’s Retail Bank, based in London.
“We are very pleased that Jeff has agreed to serve and the company will benefit significantly from his solid business, operational and financial expertise,” said president and chief executive officer Peter Cammarata. “The board is delighted to add Jeff’s diverse industry background and experience, and confident he will help the company continue to grow and benefit from his sound advice and insights.”
Although his deepest expertise is based in finance and analytics, Branflick has held marketing and general management roles in financial services and his early career included work in the consumer products business with Johnson & Johnson. He also has worked with innovative marketing startups through the Collider accelerator program in London and served on the board of a financial technology startup in the U.S.
He is a member of the RAL Art Center board and previously served on the board of Junior Achievement of Silicon Valley and Monterey Bay.
He earned a degree in commerce from Washington & Lee University, earned both CPA and CMA designations, and attended the Harvard Business School executive program for general management. He currently has a USCG 50 Ton Master License.
Branflick and his wife, Louise, have owned a home in White Stone since 2003 that they rebuilt and now make their main home.
Branflick succeeds Robert “Lee” Stephens who passed away August 11, 2017, and capably continued the Stephens family legacy of both his father and grandfather with his 13 years of service as a member of the board of directors.
