Brent Roloson, Nova Mutual Insurance Co
Senior agribusiness underwriter
Nova Mutual Insurance Company
At the start of 2019, Brent Roloson was promoted to senior agribusiness underwriter; at the same time, two 100-year-old mutual insurers, Norfolk Mutual Insurance Company and Wabisa Mutual Insurance Company, amalgamated under the new name Nova Mutual Insurance Company. As the lead underwriter in the agribusiness department at Norfolk Mutual, Roloson grew the agriculture book of business from $921,000 to $1.9 million in just four years. Prior to his arrival, Norfolk Mutual's growth rate in agriculture was just 3%. Over the past two years, with Roloson’s influence, the company has experienced growth in excess of 20%.
Roloson also launched three agriculture packages at Norfolk: poultry, grain and dairy. His passion and commitment to the business increased Norfolk Mutual’s agribusiness activity so significantly that the company had to hire an additional agribusiness underwriter to assist with new business and renewals. Roloson eagerly coaches new agribusiness producers and regularly sets up shop at industry trade shows to assist in building the company’s profile.
