Arlington/Roe, managing general agent and wholesale insurance broker, expands its leadership team and aligns for future growth and perpetuation with the appointment of Andy Hamilton, CIC, as Transportation Manager.
Over the past 10 years, Arlington/Roe has grown exponentially from 119 associates to 189 and from $112 million in premium to $215 million. Notably, the company is still independent, family-owned and two of President and CEO Jim Roe’s sons, Andy and Patrick Roe, are serving in leadership roles.
“I am excited to have Andy come on board and look forward to many years of productive, profitable growth in our Transportation practice area,” Jim Roe said. “I believe Andy Hamilton has the experience and skills to help us grow.”
Andy has prior leadership experience as the branch manager of the Ohio office at J.M. Wilson Corp., and he has a wide variety of experience on the company, agency and E&S sides. He was responsible for all production in several states, and he led a team whose majority of premium was in transportation business.
Before moving to Columbus in 2017, Andy was the sales and agency relations manager for J.M. Wilson in Indiana and Ohio. He also has experience as a territory manager in Indiana with Liberty Mutual/Safeco and as a risk management consultant with the Henriott Group. He holds a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation.
A native Hoosier, Andy hails from Knightstown, Indiana. He is a graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice and a minor in Spanish.
Andy’s favorite aspect of his chosen career is the people he has met. Given his varied career path, he says he has met some of the most amazing people and shared in their success. He is also fascinated by the continually evolving nature of the insurance industry, and he enjoys finding new solutions for the risks that emerge as a result of the changing world.
Andy and his wife, Rachel, have a seven-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son. He says that any free time he gets to spend with his family is compound interest in his life. He is a homebrewer, he loves to play guitar, and he stays very active with running, the occasional triathlon and lifting weights. He is also an avid Dodgers and Hoosiers fan!
