Southwest Insurance Agency Alliance (SIAA) — the largest alliance of independent insurance agencies in the Southwest — has hired two regional vice presidents for the State of Arizona: William R. Gordon and Nate Call.

Gordon and Call will share responsibility for membership service, network development and insurance company relations for Alliance member agencies located in Arizona.

“These staff additions reflect our commitment to bringing in top talent who will support our dedication to the creation and growth of the local independent insurance agency,” says Daniel Skinner, managing partner of Southwest Insurance Agency Alliance. “Bill, a 28-year accomplished insurance industry professional, has successfully developed and managed both independent and captive agencies. Nate, a 10-year industry professional, brings a depth of sales and risk management experience, making him an outstanding adocate and mentor for our agency members. Both gentlemen will ensure our current and future agencies stay well-equipped to meet the demands of today’s evolving industry.”

A resident of Phoenix, Gordon holds a BA from the University of Phoenix, maintains a seat on the Agent’s Advisory Council and earned the J.D. Powers Distinguished Agency Service Award in 2005.
