Aaron Hinks started in insurance in 2010, selling personal lines. He quickly grasped the concept of serving as an advisor and was offered a role selling life and disability insurance. In 2013, he opted to pursue an opportunity as a broker. Since then, Hinks has specialized in transportation insurance, including trucking carriers, warehouse operators and third-party logistics firms, and has used his knowledge of the trucking industry and trucking insurance market to strengthen his performance and brand.
“I am an avid consumer advocate, building trust and relationships with my clients by educating, being honest, and offering advice and solutions that meet their needs,” he says.
In 2015, Hinks joined JDIMI/Navacord, where he has been a top performer. He became an equity partner last year and has a goal to grow his book of business to become a million-dollar producer.
“One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned throughout my career is to always demonstrate value to the client,” he says. “Don’t sell them on flashy words or try to close in every meeting. Rather, provide them what they need in order to be more effective and efficient."
