Tim Flatt has joined Higginbotham, the largest independent insurance broker based in Texas, as an employee benefits executive vice president. Flatt, a resident of Midland for more than 25 years, will open Higginbotham’s first Midland office, bringing the firm’s single source solution for insurance to Midland’s middle market businesses.
Hiring Flatt is part of Higginbotham’s initiative to widen its footprint in Texas. The firm has 33 offices across the state and has added five in 2019.
Higginbotham Chairman/CEO Rusty Reid said, “Tim embodies the entrepreneurial spirit that we look for in our brokers. His drive not only yields results for clients, it will also yield results for our firm as we lay the foundation for growth in Midland.”
Flatt comes from Marsh & McLennan Agency and has a background in pharmaceutical sales, where he first developed an interest in health care insurance. He received regional and national honors as a pharmaceutical sales representative before transitioning into the employee benefits field.
