TREVOR BURGESS

CEO, NEPTUNE FLOOD INSURANCE, ST. PETERSBURG

Neptune Flood is a private flood insurance company that uses proprietary software to assess risk and price insurance. Now operating nationwide, the company expects to hit 100,000 customers before 2022. Neptune, says Burgess, is the largest digital provider of flood insurance in the U.S., competing with the federal government’s NFIP. Burgess, who founded and was CEO of C1Bank, which was purchased by Bank of the Ozarks, is a former investment banker with Morgan Stanley.

EDUCATION Dartmouth College (BA)
CIVIC EFFORT My husband and I purchased laptops for all of the students at Academy Prep in St. Petersburg so they could learn remotely during the pandemic.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I’m the first person on my mother’s side of the family to graduate from college. Mom finished after me in her 50s!
FAVORITE PART OF JOB I love to hire passionate smart young people — half the people who work at Neptune have been hired via Zoom.
