Mandy Whorton

Mandy Whorton joined the National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research in April of 2018 as an Academic Director overseeing Agency Management, Agency Operations, Insurance Company Operations, and the Intro series. She brings a wealth of experience gained through twenty years within the insurance industry in progressive roles and responsibilities across the range of insurance specialties, and functions.  In addition to overseeing daily operations and initiatives, she has successfully managed the integration of strategies, business processes, technology, variety of management systems, markets and personnel through multiple mergers and acquisitions. This in-the-trenches, tactical experience brings a practical relevance and utility to the programs she oversees.

 

Her perspective and passion for organizational development, including both top-level administrative policy and development of workflows, standards, and procedures based on best practices, empower organizations in their daily work. This real-world understanding of both the end-state goals and mid-course challenges of integration represents a real asset for the Alliance.

 

In addition to her professional experience in insurance, Mandy maintains an operational awareness of contemporary trends and embraces a respect and passion for helping organizations better utilize the tools they already have and support them in adopting new processes to optimize efficiency, growth and profitability.

 

Mandy is committed to fostering professional development that can prove instrumental for our programs. An approachable, personable, and dependable leader, she personifies the integrity and dedication that our participants seek to cultivate in their organizations.
