Travis Blackford, Hull & Company
EVP – West Coast wholesale division
HULL & COMPANY
Travis Blackford started his career with Hull & Company; by 2010, he had been promoted to Denver profit center leader. In 2020, Blackford was tapped to oversee the West Coast region, specializing in construction, product and excess liability placements. Blackford and his team write $30 million in annualized revenue while serving clients in 13 Western states.
“I am blessed to work with so many talented teammates daily,” Blackford says. “Given the global headwinds we are facing professionally and personally, it has been inspiring to see how our work family has come together to be a source of strength and execution for each other, our carrier partners and our retail partners. We recognize our challenges are not unique to Hull, so we focus on the ‘controllables’ – our attitude and effort. We challenge ourselves in this virtual environment to improve our processes by 1% daily, weekly and quarterly. We believe in the power of marginal gains and understand that achieving great success is a consistent series of small wins.”
