Victoria Cunningham (née Clipper) is delighted to be representing Constituency 28 (Warwick West) for the One Bermuda Alliance. She has deep roots in Bermuda and is able to trace her family back generations.
Victoria’s grandparents inspired her family with their spirit of service and some of her earliest memories involve delivering Meals on Wheels with them across the island. Her grandfather volunteered for the Red Cross until he was 101, and Victoria is proud that the Red Cross Equipment Rental building is named after him, Captain FW Clipper.
She returned to Bermuda in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Geography from the University of Liverpool. Since then, she has worked in a number of local and international (re)insurance companies in their Claims, Broking and Underwriting departments. She has also worked in multiple hospitality roles with The Bermuda Bistro, Robin Hood, The World Rugby Classic and Gosling’s.
Victoria is passionate about youth development and counts tens of young Bermudians as her mentees as she helps guide them from the end of high school, through college or university and into careers. She has been Chairman of both the Bermuda Chapter for the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters and the Bermuda Under 40s (Re)insurance group. Victoria has also educated many through the Bermuda Insurance Institute and Bermuda College with courses relating to International Business.
In 2015, Victoria won the Young Industry Leader award from the Bermuda Insurance Institute. She sits on the Board of the Bermuda Foundation for Insurance Studies (BFIS) and also Chairs the BFIS Mentor Networking Committee and sits on the BFIS Schools Outreach Committee.
A member of the One Bermuda Alliance since 2011, Victoria has worked up from the branch level, holding positions of Caucus Secretary (2016–2018), Branch Campaign Manager (C30) and most recently Deputy Chairman from 2020 to 2022.
