The Broker Spotlight

In this edition we are featuring one of the first agents that joined AHCT, Stephen Hunt
Stephen started in insurance in 1996, and in 2000 he went independent, starting “The Hunt Agency Inc” in Avon, CT. His focus has been individual and small group Medical and Medicare products from several major companies. In 2008, The Hunt Agency was purchased by Pawson Associates Inc, located at 31 Business Park Drive in Branford, CT, giving him multiple locations to work from and allowing his clients greater access to other insurance products they offer as Property and Casualty agents. Pawson Insurance has joined Risk Strategies Co in October of 2021 as a member independent retail insurance agency.
From its onset in 2014, Stephen has represented individual and small group plans offered through Access Health CT, and looks forward to doing so in the future. Stephen proudly served in the US Army from 1987 to 1991, and the Connecticut National Guard from 1991 to 1995. He has a BA from Central Connecticut State University.

Fun fact: "There are 169 incorporated towns in CT, and I have recorded a timed road race in each one. It’s a great way to see the whole state close up!"
