RALEIGH, NC—Sentinel Risk Advisors announced today a notable addition to its risk management executive team with the hiring of David R. Lewis, a seven-term N.C. House lawmaker from Harnett County.
Sentinel—a premier insurance brokerage firm with a reputation for exceptional client experience in 36 states—has offices in Raleigh and Greenville, with plans to add several more around the state in the next two years. Lewis will focus on southeastern North Carolina and lead the effort to open Sentinel’s Fayetteville office.
Lewis, chairman of the House Rules Committee, is a lifelong farmer and entrepreneur with strong ties to agribusiness. He will continue to oversee operations on his family farm, Lewis Farms, Inc., when he officially joins Sentinel September 15.
Sentinel Managing Partner Jim Holmes said Lewis’ agribusiness expertise will add a particular depth to the Raleigh-based firm’s intellectual capital and capacity. Sentinel has been able to grow its foothold as the Carolinas’ go-to risk management firm by bringing industry leaders like Lewis to the team, according to Holmes.
“The value David offers to our clients extends far beyond the dollars and cents of asset protection,” said Holmes. “What you’re getting with David is a risk advisor who not only knows your business inside and out, but has been in your shoes and knows what keeps you up at night. We are beyond excited to welcome him to the team.”
Lewis is running for re-election this fall to represent the 53rd District for an eighth term. On joining Sentinel, Lewis said he is most looking forward to bolstering the rural businesses and family farms that form the economic backbone of North Carolina.
“For me, being on the Sentinel team is a new way to serve, an opportunity to safeguard and protect the very people and places I hold dear, and to enable their success for generations to come.”
