New York, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
Precise Leads, one of the most respected and reliable resources for insurance agents, announces two industry heavy hitters are joining the company’s leadership team. Hunter Ingram joins as Senior Vice President of National Sales and Kyle Ralph steps in as Precise’s Director of Business Development. Both professionals bring vast industry experience and expertise to Precise Leads.
Ingram has led an ambitious and driven career since entering the insurance industry, creating a reputation well respected among peers in both insurance sales as well as the lead generation space. Once an insurance agent himself, Ingram founded HometownQuotes as an answer to the lack of quality insurance lead information and customer service he experienced as an agent. By developing a better process and product, he helped agents create more profitable agencies and provide a better overall lead experience. Ingram served as CEO of HometownQuotes through 2011. In his new role, Ingram will oversee Precise's fast growing agent base and direct distribution of lead buyers as well as the rapid expansion of the Columbus, Ohio sales division.
“This first-hand experience in both insurance sales and direct-to-consumer marketing gives Hunter a unique insight into the provider/consumer relationship,” states Tony Franzese, President, CEO and Founder of Precise Leads. “Hunter’s experience coupled with his vision and drive will help us take Precise to the next level.”
In addition to his business success, Ingram has been personally recognized as a finalist for Inc. Magazine's Entrepreneur of the Year Award and also received Inc’s Reader's Favorite Award.
Kyle Ralph joins Precise Leads as the Director of Business Development where he will leverage his demonstrated skill set and high level of industry expertise. Most recently, Ralph served as the Senior Business Development Manager at Bankrate, where he grew and managed one of the largest affiliate bases in the industry. In addition to managing relationships representing over $5 million in monthly revenue, he also contributed to the development of their click marketplace.
Ralph hits the ground running at Precise by expanding and managing Precise’s vast affiliate relationships and bringing new high-quality affiliates and partners into the fold. He will also oversee Precise’s extensive quality control efforts including lead scoring, verification, and marketing analysis.
“We are really excited to bring Kyle onboard,” states Franzese. “With his skill set and experience in the affiliate world, we are no doubt bringing the best of the industry to the Precise team.”
