Key Quotes:

  • “The idea of taking the best of what we have in our industry from a digital standpoint, and mashing it up against the best of what we have to offer from a human standpoint, and creating an agency around that concept… Man, so many things went right.” – Ryan Hanley
  • “I have been blessed by carrier partnerships, nurturing those carrier partnerships, and being respectful, honest, upfront, and transparent with those carrier partnerships.” – Ryan Hanley
  • “We all have to make decisions. In this case, I want to work with people who want to work with me. I’m not the old-school agency owner who’s going to beg for an appointment. If you don’t want me, that’s fine, I’m out. I’ll go find people that do and work within the confines of those relationships, because that’s what a partnership should be.” – Ryan Hanley
