February 2019 – Jeff Stiles


Jeff began his insurance career 30 years ago. He is an Account Manager at Curneal Hignite in the Commercial Department.

Jeff has his P&C License, and he also took the extra steps to obtain his CIC Designation in order to serve his insureds to the fullest capability. Jeff exhibits the “Nobody Works Harder” attitude by staying dedicated to his insureds with all the changes and challenges of the insurance industry.

Since starting with Curneal Hignite in 2005, he has welcomed the opportunity to work with Public Entities. Currently, he is working day in and day out on 90% of his accounts that renew July 1. His determination and work ethic put him at the top of the list for the employee spotlight this month.

He enjoys the challenge of getting the best coverages and pricing, while networking within the communities he serves. Jeff says the most rewarding part of his job is getting to know his insureds on a personal level, not just helping an individual or an establishment.

He enjoys making it feel more like a relationship – an assurance that they both know they’ll come to him with their insurance needs.
