Meet the President
With a degree in economics from Virginia Tech, Larry Manning launched his insurance career as a Loss Control Representative in Richmond, Virginia. Moving up the ranks, he transferred to Washington DC as a Casualty Underwriter, followed by a supervisory roll which led him to a management position in Fresno. As a Regional Vice President, he held positions with Hartford in Fresno, St. Louis and Sacramento. Larry started with PIIB in 2001 as Executive Director. Manning recognized that the organization was the "cluster that worked."
His knowledge of the industry and affinity for smaller insurance agencies was the perfect match. He was named president and COO in 2003 and then CEO in 2012. Under his leadership, PIIB hit the centurion mark in 2014 growing the company from seven to two hundred affiliates.
