Marty graduated from The University of Georgia Terry College of Business in 1990, earning a Bachelor of Business Administration in Risk Management & Insurance. He earned a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation in 1992.
Before joining Higginbotham, Marty started as a National Accounts underwriter for The Travelers Insurance Company. In 1995 he became an Agent and later a Partner with Johnson & Bryan. In 1999 Marty helped found the Atlanta branch of the Insurance Office of America, where he was a Partner and served as a director on the board. Of his many accolades, the professional accomplishment he is most proud of is becoming the President of the Young Agents.
Marty’s focus and specialty is the real estate industry, particularly owners and property management companies for habitational risks, including associated business classes. The impact he wants to make in the industry is to equip clients with the knowledge to address risk activity through insurance, risk mitigation, and alternate risk transfer. He differentiates himself by continually involving himself and his associates in all phases of his clients’ accounts, becoming a part of the team, from marketing to claims. The most valuable lesson he learned from his education is that while education is essential, what you do with it is more so.
