Jessica Hanneman, Marsh & McLennan Agency
Vice president, director of business relations
Marsh & McLennan Agency
In 2013, Jessica Hanneman, a former Miss Alaska USA, traded in her heels and crown for a career in sales. After her first year, Hanneman was inducted into the National Quarter Million Dollar Club. She began working for Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA) in 2015 as an entry-level sales professional and, two years later, was promoted to vice president and business relationship manager. At the age of 28, Hanneman became the youngest member of her office’s executive committee and was promoted last year to director of business relations and sales leader for the MMA Alaska office.
In addition to her full-time job, Hanneman has served as chair and co-chair of MMA’s GROW (Growth in Relationships and Opportunities for Women) Committee. “There is a lack of women in leadership in the insurance industry,” she says, “and I’ve been shaping the future by mentoring, serving and encouraging other women.”
