It’s with mixed emotions that IIAT announces Laura Farmer, CPCU, CIC, will be pursuing a new role at Service Lloyds Insurance Company.
During her time at the association, Laura has managed the ELITExas (Emerging Leaders of Insurance in Texas) Advisory Council and spearheaded programs to promote the insurance industry to younger generations. In 2016, ELITExas took home the Outstanding Breakthrough Award at the Big “I” Fall Leadership Conference in Chicago.
In her new role serving on Service Lloyds' Business Development Team, Laura will be responsible for working with the company’s partner agencies, growing Service Lloyds' business in Central Texas. She’ll also continue to build relationships with Young Agents across Texas and maintain her involvement with ELITExas.
“We are sorry to see Laura go, but excited for her as she starts a new challenge with one of our partner companies. Laura has been an enthusiastic ambassador for independent agents and the IIAT brand," said IIAT President & Executive Director Marit Peters. "We look forward to working with her in her new role to continue building on the success of ELITExas and promoting the insurance industry to the younger generation entering the workforce.”
