BSA Claims Service’s Director of Business Development and Marketing Kim Porterfieldis no stranger to the insurance industry. She served in a part-time marketing and lobbying capacity for BSA Claims for five years before coming on board full-time in February 2018.
Porterfield, fourth generation Texas and survivor of one of Central Texas’ flash floods herself, is a qualified Flood Adjuster and has experience with Harvey wind claims. She understands the needs of policyholders who are rebuilding their lives as well as the needs of carriers who are under pressure to close claims.
After 27 years working in the fields of community relations and development work in public K-12 and higher education, Porterfield has transitioned her marketing and business expansion skills to BSA Claims Service, where she is responsible for creating and sustaining business relationships, developing new partnerships and marketing.
She was elected to two terms as a city council member in San Marcos Texas, and served on many regional and state planning authorities, boards and commissions, offering her a unique insight into the claims administration industry, governmental relations and the role of private industry.
A product of Texas State University’s journalism department, Kim began her career as a newspaper reporter and photographer. Active in Texas non-profits and community service, she serves on the board of directors for the United Way of Hays and Caldwell Counties, the City of San Marcos Commission on Children and Youth, and was inducted into the San Marcos Women’s Hall of Fame.
She is married to Winton Porterfield and they have two grown children. Kim and her husband enjoy traveling, and outdoor activities.
