Thursday February 11, 2021

Our team has grown to 25 people and we are thrilled about a few of our new hires and promotions!

As we move into 2021, Peabody Insurance Agency would like to share a few updates and some exciting news!

Last year our agency was voted one of the Coolest Places to Work by Crain’s Magazine. This is a huge honor and we feel very fortunate that we have such an accomplished and cool group of people working at Peabody Insurance Agency! Our team has grown to 25 people and we are thrilled about a few of our new hires and promotions.

Kelly Hawley has been promoted to Commercial Lines Account Manager. Commander Kelly, as we love to call her, is a true insurance professional and a stickler for the details. She is a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) and is one of the best insurance practitioners in Michigan. Kelly has been with Peabody Insurance for over five years and we are pleased to have her on our leadership team.


Lauren Davis has been promoted to a Commercial Account Manager. She has been working with us for the past two years and started as a part time receptionist as she was finishing her college career. Lauren then moved to a Commercial Processor but soon out grew that roll. Lauren is smart and dedicated and we are lucky to have her working with our clients.


Jacob Petzold started in December as a Personal Lines Account Manager. He is a graduate from Northwood University and got his Insurance License while still in school. We are very excited to have Jacob working with us and know that the sky is the limit for him.




Cara Hertz was promoted to Personal Lines Account Manager after starting as a part time receptionist while still in high school. As an Account Manager, Cara has received many great reviews from the clients she serves.





Kate Peabody has started as a Commercial Producer and will be spending the next year in a rigorous training program. She is a graduate of Michigan State University and has spent the last 6 years in Chicago in the hotel real estate and investment market.





Travis Petts has been hired as a Commercial Lines Processor. Travis graduated from Olivet College where he studied Insurance/ Risk Management and was a four year pitcher/outfielder for the Olivet Comets baseball team. Travis interned for Peabody Insurance a few years ago and we are happy to have him back! 





And finally, we are proud to announce that Grace Peabody has become President of Peabody Insurance Agency. Grace is a founder of the agency when we launched in 2013. She took a short stint to work in Chicago with a marketing firm before getting her MBA at the University of Notre Dame. Grace came back to the agency in the fall of 2017 and has been instrumental in the growth of our agency.

Below you will find a short video that announces the news. Please watch!
