Tony Hopkins Recognized as a 2023 Agent of the Year by Insurance Journal

The Horton Group is pleased to announce that Tony Hopkins, Senior Vice President of Horton’s Risk Advisory division, has been named one of the “2023 Agents of the Year” by Insurance Journal, a nationally recognized property and casualty publication.

Tony provides Risk Management & Insurance solutions to companies that have grown to the size where they have complex needs, yet still have limited resources to deploy towards protecting organizational assets and employees. Insurance Journal recognized him for his success in specialization, specifically in the niche areas of Gas & Welding and Mergers & Acquisitions.

“Specialization not only drives the growth of Horton’s book of business – it also differentiates us from the competition,” Tony said. “A key component to achieving success in this industry is to find a niche and immerse yourself in it.”

Insurance Journal also recognized Horton’s special ability to partner with clients as an “outsourced risk management partner,” which is seen as a “long-term investment for both clients and staff.”

“We are proud of Tony for his hard work and dedication to his clients,” said Dan Horton, CEO of The Horton Group. “Tony works tirelessly to put his clients in the center, listening to their needs and ensuring they are fully protected from their biggest industry risks. We are pleased to see him professionally recognized for his efforts.”

Insurance Journal has served as a comprehensive resource for insurance brokers and agents for over a century. They define Agents of the Year as more than top sellers; they are accomplished professionals with a deep understanding and passion for what they do.
