Ted Dimitry, a commercial property/casualty insurance broker specializing in the oil and gas industry for 23 years, has joined Higginbotham’s Houston office as its energy and marine practice leader.
Higginbotham, based in Fort Worth, is the largest independent insurance and financial service firm based in Texas, the company said in a news release. Higginbotham has more than 20 industry practice groups that cater to companies with specialized risks.
“The demand for expertise in energy and marine insurance is understandably high in Houston. It’s called the Energy Capital of the World for good reason, and Ted is a world-class expert in this field,” said Higginbotham Houston Managing Partner Dudley Ray.
Dallas Business Journal and Houston Business Journal named Dimitry a “Who’s Who in Energy,” and the latter included him in its “40 Under 40” class of 2012.
Dimitry was most recently first vice president at Alliant Insurance Services Inc., Energy & Marine Group. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Washington and Lee University in 1995 and a Master of Business Administration degree at Rice University in 2002.
Higginbotham’s Houston office is located in the Energy Corridor.
