Meet Our Team

 

Bob Chandler
CEO

I am a second-generation insurance agent who has been in the industry for 29 years. After working for one of the most successful insurance agents in the country, I decided to become self-employed, and here I am 21 years later! I grew up in the Metro-Atlanta area where I attended Dunwoody High School and Norcross High School. I went on to graduate from Georgia Southern University in 1989.

When my clients purchase insurance, they are buying a promise. I make it my responsibility to fulfill that promise. Insurance is something intangible, but when they need help, they can rest assured knowing that my team will be in their corner, fighting on their behalf. My team and I are dedicated professionals who consider going above and beyond, the only thing to do. Our business cards include our cell phone numbers, so when tragedy strikes, you can reach us directly.

When I’m not looking out my customer’s best interests, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Just over five years ago, I took up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and, in the process, I have earned my purple belt under Paul Creighton at Creighton MMA!! I still from time to time enjoy a good carrot cake on the days I’m not training. I’m a huge fan of the Atlanta Falcons and the Georgia Bulldogs! On Sunday mornings, you can find me at 12Stone Church.

Giving back to the community has always been a passion of mine. I take pride in being involved in various charitable causes in my community, donating both time and money.

Wes DuBose
President

I come from a long line of insurance agents; actually, my father, uncle and cousin all owned agencies. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2006, I worked in both Captive and Independent agencies. As a result, I have really intimate knowledge of the in’s and out’s of this industry. I’m truly passionate about providing the best service to our clients and making sure they know they can count on us.

As a lifelong resident of Suwanee, I have been lucky enough to see the Metro Atlanta areas grow from small towns to big cities, even though, Athens does have a piece of my heart. Until this day, I still love to attend UGA football games, GO DAWGS! When I’m not at the games, I enjoy spending time with my family and the occasional round of golf.

I’m really passionate about giving back to our community, through volunteering. I coach rec league baseball as a way of making my corner of the world just a little bit better!

Hannah Hong
Vice President

Working in the insurance industry has been a tremendously rewarding experience. Taking care of my clients’ insurance needs is my top priority. I take pride in running the day-to-day operations, while also making sure with my agents have the proper training and resources to best serve our clients. I think that truly caring for our clients like they are our family sets us apart from other agencies. Having access to 12+ carriers gives our clients many options to choose from. They don’t have to sacrifice coverage for price.

I was born In New York, but moved to Georgia at an early age, and pretty much grew up here. I consider myself a true Georgian!! I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, and you can even find me volunteering at church, as well. But you can always find me looking for my next food adventure!! I have a really diverse palate for all kinds of food, so I think of myself as a true foodie at heart.

Alecia Hutchins
Client Care Specialist

I’ve been working in the insurance industry for years now and am loving my experience. Being able to shop for the best rate for our customers is my absolute favorite part of my job! Making sure our customers know we value our relationship with them is definitely a priority of mine. I was born and raised in Buford, Georgia. Growing up in a small town has made me appreciate that small community feel! And the reason I treat my customers like family.

I really enjoy being outdoors and taking in all the beauty that nature has to offer. Whether I’m putting in some work on my yard or hiking to a waterfall in the mountains, you can be sure to find me relishing in the outdoors with my beautiful daughter and our adorable pups!

I’ve always felt passionate about my community and finding ways to give back. I am a part of From Hunger to Hope, an organization which sends meals to families in need in small countries.

Manuel Quinones
Commercial Lines Specialist

I enjoy working in the insurance industry because I can connect with my clients. The most satisfying aspect of being in the insurance industry is hearing a client thank you for protecting what they care most about.

I grew up in Wilmington, NC, where I went to the same high school as Michael Jordan! I went on to attend the University of North Carolina Wilmington. You may have heard of their well known surf team.

In my spare time, you can find me going to car shows, legal drag races, and building project cars. If you can’t already tell, I’m a huge NASCAR fan!

Melissa Garcia
Commercial Lines Specialist

The insurance industry is new territory for me. I have a degree in International Affairs and have been in sales and business management for the past 5 years. One of my greatest passions is helping people so I am very excited to be in this industry! What I am most excited about is getting to help people in my community. I have always enjoyed doing what I can to help others and I believe I will really get to do that here. As a former business owner, I 100% believe in building lasting relationships with my clients and making sure that their experience is one of a kind!

 I grew up in Colombia, South America and moved to the U.S./Georgia when I was 8. I had never seen a school bus or experienced seasons until moving here. While I miss living in perfect weather year-round, I also love watching the seasons change! I embrace my Colombian heritage and my Georgia spirit equally!

When I’m not at work, I am most likely at a concert, or driving way too far to satisfy a craving for some very specific food. My perfect weekend includes the perfect balance of Netflix/Hulu, adventures with my dog, and live music. I am fluent in Spanish and French and I play guitar and violin.

 

Debbie Pike
Account Executive

I have worked in the insurance industry for many years in various roles,  Account Management, Claims, and Customer Service. I especially enjoy working with customers and finding out what is going on in their lives and how I could help them with their insurance needs.  My biggest priority is educating our customers about what they need to know in order to protect themselves and what matters most to them and what they might not necessarily know about their insurance needs.

Growing up, my family moved quite a bit so I had the experience of living in  7 different states.  I attended college at  Georgia Southern University for my Bachelor’s Degree, and then later attended Strayer University for my Master’s Degree. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my children and my grandchildren. You can most likely find me spending my weekend with my grandchildren. I love being a part of all of the events they have going on!
