Broker
CRC Group
Specialty: Transportation

Andrew Hartman began his insurance career in 2009 as an assistant account manager with Lockton in Houston. A year later, he was given the opportunity to join CRC Insurance as a wholesale broker and “has never looked back,” he says. “I learned how to broker business the old-fashioned way, through osmosis. I was negotiating and binding business on my own within just six months.”

As a wholesale broker specializing in the trucking industry, Hartman says he most enjoys the people he encounters. “I work with first- and second-generation immigrants, city folks, country folks and everyone in between,” he says. “There can be an inherent disconnect from the insureds you write because we don’t deal directly with the client, and finding ways to bridge that gap with our agents and build lasting relationships with both is a daily challenge we traverse successfully. It is one of the assets I offer in which I take great pride.”
