Each year the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) awards the Account Manager of the Year award to recognize the individual's customer service contributions and achievements in our agency as well as our industry. We're excited to share that our own Melissa Simmons has been nominated for this award!
Melissa is based in our Dallas office, and has served clients as a part of the marketing department and then transitioned to her current role as an account manager for commercial lines clients. With more than 31 years in the industry, including 24 years on the carrier side and seven years at Hotchkiss, she continues to enjoy being able to protect her clients and maintain longtime relationships. Melissa has said, "I love learning about the many different types of businesses we insure, and I'm thankful to be a part of the purpose-led culture at Hotchkiss as well."
Melissa holds a B.S. in business management and the industry's prestigious Certified Insurance Counselor designation.
The statewide winner of Account Manager of the Year will be announced in November. We're proud of Melissa for this well-deserved recognition, and are thankful she's a part of the Hotchkiss team!
