ATLANTA (July 7, 2021) – Oakbridge Insurance Agency LLC is pleased to announce that Stephanie Cox, AAI, has been named as senior vice president and leader of the commercial property and casualty team. In this role, Cox will leverage her deep industry experience in both insurance and risk management to address these needs strategically and innovatively for clients and help drive Oakbridge’s growth as one of the largest, independently owned, client-focused insurance agencies in the Southeast.
“Stephanie has a long history of excellence and client service within the insurance industry, and we are thrilled to be adding her to our leadership team,” said Michael Dollar, chief operating officer for Oakbridge. “As we look to the future, Stephanie’s leadership, relationship building, and ability to look at both the big picture and the details will be a tremendous asset to ensure we grow Oakbridge purposefully and thoughtfully in the years ahead.”
Cox began her insurance career in Texas working for Alexander & Alexander.

“Oakbridge is paving the way within the industry for independently owned agencies to deliver the highest levels of relationship-driven counsel to clients while accessing an ever-growing pool of resources, specialties and niche coverage through its partnership model,” Cox said. “Because every business is different, having these two essential sides of the insurance experience makes Oakbridge unique within the marketplace, and I am honored to partner with the team to grow and develop our capabilities in these areas.”
