Chris Pearson Receives
Outstanding Service Award
Chris Pearson, Pearson Crop Insurance
Agency LLC received the 2019 Crop Insurance
Industry Outstanding Service Award in recognition for providing outstanding service and
outreach to small, limited resource, and socially
disadvantaged farmers.  The award was presented at the 2019 Crop Insurance Industry Annual
Convention.
Chris' passion is the agricultural community. After entering the crop insurance industry in
2001 as an independent adjuster, he purchased
a well-known agent's book of business in 2006.
Pearson Crop Insurance Agency, L.L.C. became
Chris' vehicle to safeguard his area farmers' livelihood as well to do his part to ensure the future
of agriculture.
Since 2006, Chris has grown the agency primarily through word of mouth and reputation.
The agency currently serves a twenty-county
area, making every effort to personally meet with
all of their customers on a regular basis. Chris
prides himself on serving all farmers, whether
large or small. He provides the same dedicated
level of service, no matter the acres. Because of
this, Chris embraces the opportunity to serve a
large number of socially disadvantaged African
American, Native American and Hispanic farmers. His sense of accomplishment comes from
serving his community, not only as businessman-to-client but, also, as friend. After Hurricane Florence heavily damaged Chris' area in
September of 2018, his agency made every effort
to personally contact each of their customers to
see if they were safe and their immediate needs
were met.
Over the years, he has seen crop insurance
evolve from a product that farmers considered
to a tool they recognize as essential to the survival of their farming operations. Chris has an
open-door policy in his agency so that farmers

can stop by to discuss crop insurance options or
whatever is on their minds at their convenience.
He also holds an annual customer appreciation
event along with dinner meetings to present new
products or discuss current issues. Chris considers his clients as more than just customers;
they are his neighbors. He feels that if it were not
for crop insurance, many of them would not be
farming today.
The industry has always been a path for
Chris. He graduated from Sampson Community
College with a degree in Agricultural Business.
Before he became an independent adjuster, he
worked for a local fertilizer dealership. He then
went back to farming full-time until 2006 when

he jumped at the chance to provide security for
his farming neighbors.
Agriculture is in Chris' blood. He was born
and raised on a family farm in Clinton, NC,
where they grew tobacco, row crops, cotton and
truck & vine crops. To this day, he farms his own
500 acres, which affords him the opportunity to
work at what he loves most and keep him connected to the agricultural community. Chris has
been happily married to his wife, Lori, for 33
years and they have two wonderful children, Brian and Heather.
Congratulations, Chris, on receiving the
2019 Crop Insurance Industry Outstanding
Service Award!
