How does that happen? Well, since February is Insurance Careers Month, let's dive in, have some fun, and hear from Steve Linkous, CEO of Harford Mutual. (No, not The Hartford.) Steve joined the company back in 1985 at age - wait for it - 17. He grew up on a dairy farm and learned the value of how a business can support a family, and he brought those values to the carrier, first by starting in computer science. Listen as Steve walks us through his career progression and advice for others seeking to learn new things and grow professionally. Harford, a small commercial lines-only carrier, posted its best year ever in 2020, despite 10 months of operations in a pandemic. Steve tells us how that happened, too.
