    Marty Karriker PRESIDENT & CEO

    Co-Founder of Charlotte Insurance

    Marty Karriker, who is the President & CEO of Charlotte Insurance and a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, began his insurance career in 1990, first in the Life & Health Insurance industry while still attending college at NC State University. As a scholarship athlete, Marty played football for the Wolfpack but became sidelined due to injuries after his junior year. This afforded him the opportunity to get an early start in the insurance industry. Upon graduating NCSU with a B.A. Degree in Business Management, Marty purchased an existing Home & Auto Insurance Agency. Soon after he expanded his footprint to 10 additional locations across the State of North Carolina. By the end of 1999 he sold all of the far reaching locations and began focusing on the local market of the Greater Charlotte Area. Charlotte Insurance has two offices in Charlotte and one in Cornelius at Lake Norman where it is one of the largest privately owned insurance Agencies in Premium Volume and Customer Base in North Carolina & South Carolina. Mr. Karriker was also a leader in seeing the need to embrace Agency Automation and Internet Capabilities, which is much attributed to the success of the company. Today, he mostly oversees business infrastructure, marketing, development, growth and implementation. And just as important, he has established a sales culture and a vision to allow each Team Member to achieve personal growth every year in earnings, knowledge, and advancement within their career. Marty specializes in the following areas: General & Professional Liability, Commercial Property, Commercial Auto, Workers Compensation, Directors & Officers Liability, Cyber Liability, Employee Practices Liability, Employee Benefits Liability, and additionally Home & Auto Insurance.
