At Lighthouse, we are focused on the service we provide to our insureds, our agents, and our employees. We believe our employees are a vital part of our company’s continued success and advancement. Our Employee Spotlight is an opportunity for you to get to know our employees better by celebrating their accomplishments and learning a little about them. Get to know our Central Texas Marketing Representative, Kim Hernandez, in this month’s Employee Spotlight.

Kim Hernandez started at Lighthouse Property Insurance Corporation on June 13, 2016. She is responsible for seeking, establishing and maintaining a Lighthouse relationship with our network of appointed agents by promoting products and services we offer. Kim’s favorite part about working at Lighthouse is “the ability to network with agents and see their PIFs rise from month to month.”

She is currently working to establish a solid network of agents in the Coastal Bend area. Bruce Bessire, National Sales Manager, says “Kim’s tenaciousness and energetic attitude has helped her hit the ground running in our new Texas territory. She is eager to learn, and after her training period, Kim produced 60 new policies in her first full month in her territory. We are very happy she chose to bring her talents to Lighthouse.”
