About Carol

Carol Corporales has been a Commercial Insurance Broker for 15 years. Her practice is focused on the development and management of domestic and international insurance portfolios for technology and manufacturing companies and property owners. Her goal is to assisting clients in creating attractive insurance risk profiles, resulting in the ability to obtain lower insurance rates, better contain costs, and improve competitive positioning with their respective industries.

As an independent Broker, Carol is able to work directly with her clients and offer personalized service and attention. Operating her practice through Wateridge Insurance Services, one of San Diego’s largest independent insurance brokers, Carol and her clients are able to take advantage of the market strength and resources of a large broker.

While operating as a generalist, Carol has focused on support of executives, directors, licensed professionals and HOA Board members in the area of management and professional liability and corporate governance.

Portfolios are created with hands on attention to the unique characteristics of each client. Portfolios can span a wide variety of policies, including workers compensation, Defense Base Act and USL&H coverage, commercial property, commercial general liability (“CGL”), commercial auto, directors and officers (“D&O”), errors and omissions (“E&O”), employment practices liability (“EPL”), kidnap and ransom (“K&R”), cyber liability, excess/umbrella and international insurance policies.  In addition, Carol is frequently called on to assist in addressing new business and lease contracts to negotiate reasonable insurance terms.

Prior to becoming an insurance broker, Carol worked in various positions within the electronics manufacturing industry – from procurement to sales and marketing to regional distribution management for companies such as Allied Signal, Avnet and Sony Electronics. Time spent in the electronics industry gave Carol great experience and insights into manufacturing processes, marketing approaches and management roles – which gives her the ability to interact with her clients as an executive team member.

Thought leader and guest speaker Carol has delivered talks on the topic of Directors and Officers Insurance for such groups as the San Diego County Bar Association, FENG (Financial Executive Network Group) and Founders Roundtable.
