About My Guest:
Cover Desk founder, Andy Priesman, is an insurance industry veteran with significant and extensive operational experience. He knows what it takes to make an independent insurance agency run well because he’s done it in his own business. Andy has blazed a trail of innovation in an industry not known for being on the cutting edge of technology or new processes.
With Cover Desk, he’s bringing his experience and innovation to agencies like his who need help competing against the big insurance brands.
Before Cover Desk, Andy established Greenway Insurance in 2007 and still owns the company today. Andy started his career with the New York Life Insurance Company and later started a Farmers Agency in 2005. In 2008 after Hurricane IKE, Andy saw the writing on the wall with Farmers. He decided to turn his agency into an independent insurance agency, specializing in personal and commercial lines insurance. Andy expanded carrier markets and opened up locations offices in Dallas, Austin, Texas, and Oxnard, CA, and Manila, Philippines. Andy added insurance agents, new carriers, and ultimately serves the client and not only one insurance company.
Today Greenway Insurance is a tech-focused mid-sized independent firm serving consumers and businesses in Texas, Florida, and California.
Greenway Insurance has received numerous awards, including the INC 5000.
Andy Priesman is a native Houstonian and grew up in Sugar Land, Texas, and later earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas. Today Andy lives in Austin, Texas, with his beautiful wife Elana and his daughters Mia and Evie.
Until next time, get out there and make a difference, be unstoppable, and leave no regrets!
