Dillon Duffy enjoys helping people and following a suggestion from a friend, he started a new career as an insurance agent on November 1, 2016 in Fort Scott.
A year ago Duffy, 26, was a para-educator at Fort Scott Middle School.
The friend, Danny Brown, told him of an opportunity to try insurance as a career at H & H Insurance. Brown teaches at the middle school and is another agent with H & H Insurance.
“He said, Lyle Adcock wants to retire,” Duffy said. “I started coming in here (the office) and enjoyed helping people with personal service.”
Duffy learned ” the ropes” from Adcock, he said.
“He (Adcock) retired in December after turning it all over to me.”
“We are an independent agency,” Duffy said. “We sell All-State, Progressive, Bremen Farmers Mutual, Travelers, Cornerstone and a few others.”
His insurance office is under the auspices of H & H Agency.
Ron and Barbara Albright own H & H Agency, which also provides real estate and property management.
Ron Albright is the real estate broker/ agent, while Barb Albright and Crystal Mason are real estate agents. Kaitlyn Jessip is the office manager. Diana Endicott is the accountant for the group.
Duffy is engaged and will marry Abigail Keating next June.
He can be contacted at his office at 2 Old Fort Boulevard or 620-223-5293. Duffy’s cell phone number is 417-214-4282
