The South Baldwin Chamber presented John Anderson of Farmers Insurance the Diplomat of the Month award at the latest Business After Hours networking event. The award was presented by the Chairman of the Chamber Board Tom DeBell, CEO of Riviera Utilities. Chamber members witnessed and cheered while enjoying the view at GTs on the Bay in Orange Beach.
John has been a Farmers Agency Owner for two years. The Anderson Agency is an all lines insurance agency that has a focus on customer service and education. “We take a lot of pride in our self to educate our clients so they can make smart decisions about their insurance needs” says John. Prior to guiding his clients through their insurance needs, John worked in the hospitality industry managing a variety of restaurants. It’s clear that John has carried over that service mentality from the restaurant business to insurance. John’s advice to anyone thinking about getting into insurance is to be compassionate and to keep in mind that people need you or to use the product on the worst day of their life.
This is John’s first year as a South Baldwin Chamber Diplomat. He joined the Chamber to engage in the community and get to know local businesses. His favorite part of being a Diplomat has been meeting new people and learning about their businesses.
John is from Evergreen Alabama. When he is not volunteering his time with the Chamber of Commerce John likes to go fishing with his daughters Haley(8) and Emily(4).
