Sarasota, Fla. (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Sarasota-based property and casualty insurer FCCI Insurance Group (FCCI) has promoted an internal candidate to assistant vice president of its Gulf Coast Regional Office located in Ridgeland, Miss. Noble previously held the position of director of underwriting for FCCI’s Florida Region, and his experience spans both the agent and carrier sides of the insurance industry.
“We’re delighted to have Mike in the Gulf Coast region,” says Tom Quaka, FCCI senior vice president, Gulf Coast Region. “Mike’s strong underwriting skills, prior experience with major carriers and ability to create and maintain agency relationships will positively serve our growing and dynamic mid-South business strategy.”
Noble’s consistent demonstration of the relationship-focused culture at FCCI and his understanding of what agents and policyholders need from a carrier were factors in the promotion.
Noble began his career with his family’s insurance agency in Missouri, where he worked as an agent for 12 years. He transitioned into underwriting with The St. Paul, then into marketing and underwriting management with Amerisure. In 2009, he joined FCCI as underwriting manager for the Tampa area, and he moved into the director of underwriting position earlier this year.
