Working in the capacity of account executive, Grant will be based primarily out of the Baldwinsville office, announced John FitzGibbons, agency president.

A Fulton native, Grant brings with him with more than 30 years in the financial services industry and holds a New York State Property and Casualty License.

He is a graduate of the State University at Buffalo, has completed training with the Life Underwriter Training Council and most currently worked as an independent insurance agent with Spinner, Bright and Associates in Auburn.

Grant said his primary focus at The Huntington Agency will be to help businesses, professional offices and not-for-profits manage insurance and risk management.

Recently, he received designation as a Certified WorkComp Advisor from the Institute of WorkComp Professionals and explained this important accreditation provides him with an advanced understanding of how to assist small business owners to better manage their Workers’ Compensation program and reduce expenses often associated with payroll audits.

Along with having spent much of his career assisting clients in navigating options for healthcare and other benefit programs, Grant also cites a strong analytical skill set which he feels will position him well in his new job to help businesses manage their insurance risk.

“The FitzGibbons Agency offered me an opportunity I could not refuse,” Grant said. “They have provided me with both the training and the tools necessary to help me meet the needs of clients and to succeed in achieving my career goals.”
