“Working with Demmie the past four years has helped shape my ability to understand the changing landscape of the independent insurance agency model. Her ‘thinking partner’ process, allows me to better see blind spots, that I might not otherwise see. Demmie’s experience — working with small, privately-held agencies to large, publicly traded ones and from bank-owned to private equity — allows her to bring a diverse view to any situation. Her ability to care personally and challenge directly creates an open and engaging environment.”
