Key Quotes:

  • “You have to find that balance between maintaining reputation, maintaining excellence, and also staying relevant. And, you can’t ever lose what got you there. You can’t ever lose the hunger. You can’t ever lose the drive.” – Davie Holt
  • “I have never ever gotten business or protected business that we’ve had, by saying just negative things about a person that worked for another company, or a company itself. But I also don’t shy away from talking about the differences between our company and our competitors, either.” – Davie Holt
  • “We all, that are insurance professionals, licensed non-licensed vendors, carriers, whatever, we all have an obligation to try to make this industry better.” – Davie Holt
