John Lyons of Insurance One Agency in Dallas was honored as the 2024 André P. Juneau ELITExan of the Year at IIAT’s annual awards ceremony and business meeting. The ceremony took place on June 21, 2024, during IIAT’s INSURCON at the JW Marriott Hill Country San Antonio. The award is named in honor of André Juneau, a visionary leader whose legacy continues to inspire excellence within the industry.

John received a record-breaking 30 nominations from his peers for the award. Described by colleagues as a mentor, a leader, and a visionary, John has significantly contributed to the industry and his community.

"Despite his young age, John deeply understands insurance products and regulations, allowing him to provide invaluable guidance and support to clients navigating complex insurance decisions," said Lynn Sexton, Assistant VP of Marketing at Zenith Insurance Company.

According to his colleagues, John's passion for helping others makes him a distinguished agent and leader in the industry. “John has a heart to serve and a willingness to help others, whether by helping our clients navigate and understand this challenging market or by sharing his knowledge and mentoring our new producers. I've been in the business for 35 years, and working with a producer of his caliber is refreshing," said Insurance One VP of Marketing Amanda Koch.

John graduated from the University of Houston with a BA in history. While he acknowledges that he doesn't use his degree in his profession, he enjoys sharing random facts about history. His career journey includes time spent in ministry in the church and non-profit sectors before transitioning into the business world.

Reflecting on his position, John explains, "While my title is agent, I consider myself a problem solver. I assist my clients in resolving issues, many of which are related to insurance."

John loves spending time with his wife and two children, particularly when they travel and explore new places together. They are working towards visiting every state and have already made great progress. In his life, John values his faith, family, and support for the Green Bay Packers highly, prioritizing them in that order.
