Brianna Boehm is the epitome of an up-and-coming broker and has responsibility for some of Amwins’ most important carrier relationships in the property sector. As vice president, she manages a team of producers and consistently meets and exceeds objectives. More importantly, she is recognized within Amwins as a team player and by customers as an expert who always puts the customer first. Her seven years with Amwins has seen her rapidly rise through the ranks as a producer, becoming one of the first graduates of the company’s Broker Development Program. She has met every challenge and is a reliable contributor to the firm’s financial success.
Boehm demonstrates a strong commitment to developing the next generation of talent in the firm and in the industry. She is particularly focused on helping provide opportunities for women. She has identified and hired several women, and has helped them succeed while also mentoring other female staff members in the company.
“I want to be a champion for women in Amwins and women in insurance,” she says. “There are opportunities for women to do business in this industry if they are interested, and I hope to mentor women and pay homage to those men and women who have mentored me and enabled me to have opportunities to succeed.”

How does he distinguish himself among fellow brokers?
“I believe all brokers are working very hard in a difficult market,” he says. “However, I have demonstrated continued growth, advocacy and performance on my client’s behalf, which is now recognised [for 10 consecutive years] in the Elite Broker awards.”
In 1990, Dixon got started with FAI, working in claims and as a team leader. From the late 1990s up until 2003, he worked at FAI and Suncorp in underwriting and as an area manager at VACC, CGU (South East Queensland). From 2003 to 2012, he got into broking and eventually started Dixon Insurance in 2013. Since then, he’s accumulated numerous acccolades, including Elite Broker, Diversity and Equity, and Fast Broker awards.
During the pandemic, Dixon challenged insurers over the Quarantine Act application to insurance wordings. His argument was that the Quarantine Act does not apply as an exclusion, as the Biosecurity Act was invoked by the Morrison Government, and this was not a subsequent amendment to the Quarantine Act. The test case in the Appeals court was won for Dixon’s client with a unanimous five-judge verdict.
He remains focused on transport, manufacturing, motor trade, engineering and large farm clients.
What are his plans for the future?
On a business level, “more of the same. I will continue to empower and encourage my staff to perform at their best as I have done for the last decade. I will continue to advocate for my clients, embracing new technology and being open to business and industry changes.”
On a personal level, Dixon invests significant time, effort and funds, along with his GT3, to support many charities through his passion for motorsport. From participating in and sponsoring the Thunderbolt Run (which provides tens of thousands of dollars in support for Beyond Blue and Prostate Cancer), to organising and running the Track Knights for Amira charity night where 28 Exotic Supercars raised funds through passenger laps in wet conditions, Dixon states “this is our time to give back to the community and those in need. My friendships and association with those seeking to do the same, allows us to contribute to those less fortunate and raise funds and awareness”.
He adds: “To be able to give back to the community is rewarding and fulfilling. I am honoured to be in a position where I can raise funds for those less fortunate and in need.”
