John Howard has some big shoes to fill as he takes over for retired BB&T Insurance Holdings CEO H. Wade Reece, who guided the company to become the fifth largest insurance broker in the US. However, Howard is more than up to the task. With 20 years of experience in brokerage, underwriting and executive leadership, Howard is stepping up from his previous role as vice chairman and CEO of the company’s wholesale and specialty division. Prior to BB&T’s acquisition of Crump Group in 2012, Howard served as president and CEO of that company. He also has served as president of insurance services for BISYS, president of the Prudential Select Brokerage unit of Prudential Financial and president of the Retirement Services strategic business unit for Consesco.
