Max King, Hays Companies
Since joining Hays Companies eight years ago, Max King has rapidly progressed through the company’s ranks. Today, as vice president and lead consultant for his clients, King is responsible for property & casualty program design, marketing and placement, and he works closely with leadership to develop innovative client and prospect solutions. He also serves as a mentor to young professionals and has helped with Hays’ internship program.
Prior to joining Hays, King worked as a claims professional at Travelers, where he was selected to participate in the claims leadership development program. He’s also part of the Heartland chapter board of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation.
“Something I’d like to see improve in the industry is getting more young people into insurance,” King says. “There is already a talent gap, and that problem is only going to accelerate over the next five years. Our industry needs a fresh approach, and I am passionate about recruiting and presenting all of the opportunities that are available in the industry.”
