YAHOO! FINANCE – SAN ANTONIO, June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — San Antonio-based Sanger & Altgelt LLC Insurance Agency, a locally and generationally owned family business serving primarily San Antonio and surrounding communities, announced the promotion of Mac Altgelt to the position of chief executive officer and Heather Haynes to serve as president. Longtime employees of the firm, Altgelt and Haynes both previously served as vice presidents and assumed their new offices at the start of this year.
“I am honored and excited to assume the position of CEO at such an exciting time in our firm’s long, honorable history,” said Altgelt, who has been with the firm for 16 years. “We are expanding our reach into new areas, while also remaining fully grounded in the principles that forged our success – family ownership that spans generations; a local focus; strong, lasting relationships; and outstanding client service.”
“It is gratifying to be elevated to president of a firm that I have put so much into for the past 24 years,” said Haynes. “Our main approach is to be risk managers for our clients, helping them find insurance, but also helping them manage assets and mitigate their risks. Beyond that, Sanger & Altgelt is truly in a class of its own. With so many agencies being acquired by large firms, being local is rare and very beneficial to our clients and the community. Although we do business all over the world, we remain strongly anchored in San Antonio and offer an unmatched level of individualized, personal service.”
As CEO, Altgelt focuses on reinforcing existing client relationships and cultivating new ones, developing and implementing creative growth strategies, and enhancing the company’s overall financial performance through increased revenue, expense management, and process efficiency. As president, Haynes manages commercial and personal risks for clients and oversees the agency, guiding its direction, policy, mission and vision. Both said they are more available and involved at the ground level with clients than officers in comparable positions in other firms.
