Andrew C. Harris Jr., CIC, AAI
Executive Vice President, Partner
Andrew joined Liberty in 2007 after 4 years with the National Atlantic Companies and The Proformance Insurance Company based in Freehold, NJ. He has since learned how to incorporate the knowledge and experience from working in his capacity at the carrier level as both an Underwriter and a Claims Examiner, and brought it to the agency. This contributes to Liberty’s superior ability to understand underwriting factors in great depth, bringing immense value to our clients in our advocacy and risk management process.
In keeping with Liberty’s standard for higher education, and commitment to excellence, Andrew has obtained the designations of “Certified Insurance Counselor” (CIC), and “Accredited Advisor in Insurance” (AAI), by The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research, and the Insurance Institute of America, respectively. These designations reflect hundreds of hours of study, and comprehensive understanding of core insurance concepts that are tested via rigorous written examination. He graduated from the Liberty Mutual Agency Markets Commercial Producer Program in 2009.
Andrew looks to follow in the footsteps of his Father, Andy Harris Sr., to become one of the leaders in the industry. He is an active member in the Professional Insurance Agents of New Jersey, where he currently serves as Secretary, and Chair of the Government Affairs Committee. In 2018, Andrew was awarded “Director of the Year”, and in 2019 was named “Professional Insurance Agent” of the year association wide.
He was also appointed to the National Producer Council for Selective Insurance Company, with whom he also works on their “Next Generation Network” and “Future Leaders Program”.
Andrew is engaged with Marsh Berry Inc., a nationally recognized consulting firm, where he is involved in their APPEX program.
Also active in both the Eastern Monmouth and Greater Monmouth Chambers of Commerce, he is known for work with Special Olympics of NJ for whom he chairs a Golf outing with PIA, and Make-A-Wish of NJ, who he’s partnered with the rest of the team at Liberty in our Philanthropic mission to engage and help the local community.
