Carol Armstrong will work on Xpress BOP (business owner policy) submissions, both through AUI’s online rater and email submissions, at AUI’s Oak Ridge, Tennessee headquarters. Her background in commercial insurance underwriting dates back to 1989, and she most recently served as senior sales manager at another agency.
