Avery Announces Promotions

We are pleased to announce Danielle Rice has been promoted to Director of Commercial Insurance.  In this role, Danielle will proactively edify businesses on risk transfer strategies and partner with key stakeholders to evaluate products and offerings to drive growth for the commercial lines division.

Danielle joined Avery in the spring of 2022 as a Senior Commercial Risk Specialist and quickly demonstrated her expert knowledge in all facets of commercial lines operations. As an Accredited Customer Service Representative (ACSR) and a Commercial Lines Coverage Specialist (CLCS), Rice educates and advises Avery clients on comprehensive insurance programs to protect business assets that ultimately impact the bottom line.

“We appreciate the depth of knowledge Danielle brings to the agency and our clients,” said Tod O’Dowd, President, Avery Insurance. “Educating our clients to make informed decisions for their companies is important to us—we look forward to seeing Danielle flourish in this new role.” With this organizational shift, longtime Avery team member, Tammy Spear, Director of Human Resources & Special Programs, will expand her responsibilities in two key areas: managing Avery’s PRIME program and enhancing Avery’s dynamic workplace culture.  

Avery PRIME is a comprehensive program providing commercially insured clients with access to critical human resource support and superior risk management strategies. This value-added program positively impacts premiums and is provided at no additional cost to Avery clients.

“As Avery continues to evolve, our focus remains on people, process, and technology,” continued O’Dowd. “We are steadfast with our commitment to nurture our team, improve our procedures, and adopt new efficiencies for targeted and strategic company growth.”

With thirty-three employees across two states, Avery Insurance provides customized insurance solutions for businesses and individuals across the country. To learn more about Avery’s approach to complete asset protection or career opportunities, please visit
