Ag Resource Management is excited to announce the addition of two Principal Insurance Agents to the team, expanding its footprint in the Crop Insurance sector.

 

Brian Long will serve as a Principal Insurance Agent in Crop Insurance for ARM’s Northeast Region. Long grew up on a corn and soybean farm in Central Illinois and attended Illinois College where he graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor’s in History. He has been in the crop insurance industry since 2005, during which the majority of his time was spent as a crop insurance agent covering Western Illinois and Eastern Missouri. Most recently Long left the AIP space as Regional Marketing Manager covering the Northeast Region from Illinois and Wisconsin  and on out to Pennsylvania.  Through part of his tenure as a crop insurance agent, Long was also a grain merchandiser and grain market advisor with a Series 3 and 30.  Long’s family operates an active grain farm in Central Illinois, which drives his strong desire to help farmers manage their risk. He and his family currently reside just outside of Franklin.

 

 

Billy Fanning will serve as a Principal Insurance Agent in Crop Insurance for ARM’s Northern Region. Fanning comes to ARM with over 20 years of crop insurance experience as a market leader and producing agent. He has worked with growers across the Midwest and Southeast, most recently writing crop insurance in the Carolinas and Virginia.  Growing up on, as well as farming full time, Billy knows and understands the risk farmers face today.  In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren.  He is an avid horseman and cattleman showing and raising cutting horses.
