Taylor Davidson, president and co-owner of Neil Benton Arts & Entertainment, is a risk management and insurance expert and a specialist in the needs of arts and entertainment businesses. His finance career began with eight years in banking before opening his first brokerage. Since then, Taylor has developed a number of successful insurance agency programs, notably one of the very few for independent filmmakers. This interest and focus led to the formation of Neil Benton Arts & Entertainment in 2012, a new firm dedicated exclusively to the needs of film, event and production services clientele. Today, Taylor and the Neil Benton team work with over 250 production companies across the country, from emerging production entrepreneurs to established producers, and as part of their mission still regularly provide free training and consultation for new filmmakers, event producers, and other creative professionals.
