Ben D. Smith, Managing Director, Higginbotham
After graduating from college, Ben Smith worked in the banking industry for six years in Houston before relocating to McAllen, Texas, to begin an insurance career. That was 24 years ago, and he remains in the same office today as a managing director for Higginbotham.
Smith believes there are three key factors that have facilitated his success in insurance: “identifying clients who are the right fit for what we offer and are able to provide value to differentiate ourselves from our competitors, working at a firm committed to growth and value creation, and having a great team of people surrounding me with common goals to support me and our clients.”
Outside of Higginbotham, Smith serves on multiple carrier agency councils and boards, as well as a variety of city and nonprofit boards within his community.
