Another Team Member Spotlight and another opportunity to give some recognition to a member of the E.L. Sanders team who has been with us for more than 25 years.
Paul Simpson joined our agency back in 1995, jumping at the opportunity for a shorter commute — four hours roundtrip is definitely not sustainable — and to grow in his career. It’s safe to say that he made the most of his opportunity to become an agent and work directly with clients.
Since 2019, Paul has used his knowledge and expertise to guide our New Business department. He manages both personal and commercial lines for us, and he especially thrives when working with our commercial clients, including handling many volunteer fire and rescue squads as well as contractors.
He’s talented, hardworking and an amazing person to work with. Get to know Paul a little better in this quick Q&A!
What attracted you to E.L. Sanders Insurance back in 1995??
Working at E.L. Sanders was attractive because at the time of the opportunity I was working in an account service capacity for an agency that required me to commute a couple of hours each day.
What has kept you with the agency for 25+ years?
Sanders gave me the opportunity to work locally. It also allowed me to move away from the account service work and focus on becoming an agent, which I ultimately wanted to do.
What do you enjoy most about working with E.L. Sanders Insurance Agency?
I am very fortunate to work for a long-established agency, with good community ties and an excellent reputation.
