Vince Lewis is a Client Executive for Horton’s Risk Advisory Solutions. In this role, Vince is responsible for providing Horton clients with comprehensive, cost-effective and innovative solutions to meet their most complex, risk-related challenges.
Vince brings 17 years of experience in insurance to his Horton clients. Prior to joining Horton in 2016, Vince served in client service positions at Lockton Companies, Willis of Illinois, Aon Risk Services and Allstate.
Vince’s experience serving small commercial clients gives him a deep understanding of these clients’ unique needs. According to Vince, smaller firms typically do not have a risk management staff in place. Instead, their insurance is often handled by someone without much insurance experience. Vince uses his expertise to educate small business clients about their risk profiles and help them take steps to better protect themselves.
For Vince, his most memorable experience in insurance came when an elderly customer’s roof was damaged by a storm. Vince still remembers the woman’s relief when he was able to hand her a check the next day after meeting with her and her contractor. This was the first time Vince personally felt what insurance can do for people.
“I enjoy coaching clients on the risks their businesses could face,” said Vince. “I help them understand marketing and pricing strategies and show them how our coverage recommendations can help protect all they have worked for.”
Following the adage “treat others as you would like to be treated,” Vince believes great customer service starts with truly understanding a client’s business.
Vince received his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Roosevelt University in Chicago. He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois.
