Meet Ann Brooks
I joined Harrington-Hoch in March of 1999 and currently serve as vice president since May 2000. Over my 22 years with the agency, I have been honored to have the opportunity to become an agency partner/owner, serve as the agency manager, and market all lines of insurance. I enjoy working with our clients to piece together the best insurance plan for their specific exposures. I often compare the process to working on a jigsaw puzzle and the feeling of accomplishment once all the pieces come together. I am a bit of a puzzle junkie so it all makes sense if you know me. Prior to joining Harrington-Hoch I managed AAA Motor club for several years and sold recreational vehicles at a dealership in Liberty, IN.
I was born into a family of ten here in Richmond, attended school at St. Andrews Catholic School, and went on to graduate from RHS. I attended Ivy Tech a few years after high school focusing on business. In 1992, I acquired my insurance license and began learning and selling insurance products as a side gig while still selling RVs. I never really dreamed insurance would be my lifelong career at the time but in hindsight, I realize it is a wonderful service and I am proud to participate on a daily basis. My teammates are all outstanding professionals and some of the best friends I have had the privilege to know. We have a great time together but still take care of business. I have been a partner in the Wayne County Insurance Services and the Indiana Independent Agents Association for the past 20 years. In addition to my real job, I currently serve on the United Way of Wayne County board, and I have served on several other non-profit boards over the last 20 years.
In my off-time, I am usually enjoying my grown children and their families. Russell and Katie have blessed me with six grandchildren. I escape to the lake for a little boating whenever possible, love to cook, and mow way too much grass in the summer months. I also enjoy traveling with lifelong friends and hanging with my seven other siblings and my dog, Pearlie!
