This year’s Insurance Advocate is Matt Lehmann (LAY-MAN), Co-Owner of Moran Insurance, in Severna Park, nominated by the Greater Severna Park & Arnold Chamber.
Matt and his business partner, Marc Dorman, have a client base of over 4,000 individuals and businesses throughout Anne Arundel County, the Baltimore Washington Metro Area and the Eastern Shore. While Matt is well known for carefully matching his clients with the insurance provider best suited to their needs and budget, it’s his efforts outside of daily duties that have garnered him this award.
He quickly admits that the insurance industry can be a “bubble,” a cloud of clients, claims and policies. To counter this, Matt participates in and hosts various Chamber and networking events and publishes a newsletter sharing news about new legislation and how these changes will affect fellow agents and his customers. He also mentors two other insurance agents in the area, encouraging their careers and sharing best practices for handling claims and underwriting techniques. He firmly believes that by interacting with fellow agents and other business leaders, he is better able to assist his customers.
Matt devotes time and resources to a variety of local charities including: Hospice of the Chesapeake, Opportunity Builders and Providence Center. He also serves as co-chair for the Moran Insurance Golf Classic, now in its 27th year, to raise money for the disabled who wish to work.
