Joseph Stringer | Bio
Joseph Stringer retired in 2016 from his role as a Producer and Risk Manager at Anderson Insurance Associates in Charleston, SC. Until that time, Joe spent 27 years in the Charleston area as a multi-lines Insurance Agent and Broker. Although Joe had retired in order to devote himself to his passion of writing and speaking, he found that he missed his involvement with Insurance and Risk Management and offered to help teach continuing education courses for IIABSC.
From 2007 to 2017, Joe also partnered with one of his clients, Scott Cave of Atlantic Business Continuity Systems, to begin building awareness of Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Preparedness for businesses, non-profit organizations and local governments throughout South Carolina. That partnership lead to the formation of the Charleston County Emergency Operations Center ESF-24 Business Hotline, one of the first formal public/private partnerships in the nation. Joe and Scott co-chaired that EOC function for ten years, helping to coordinate the disaster response between private concerns, Charleston County and the South Carolina Emergency Management Division. During that time, Joe and Scott taught quarterly seminars on Disaster Preparedness and Risk Management and provided effective response for several coastal events. They also were key business participants in a leading Business Resilience study for the Governor’s South Atlantic Alliance, a Southeast regional effort to coordinate public/private response to disasters.
Joe earned his CIC in 1992, shortly after moving from Risk Management into his full-time work as an Independent Agent and Broker. During his time at Anderson, Joe served in several capacities for the Charleston Independent Agents and Brokers chapter. In 2007, as a result of witnessing the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina on regions which were unprepared, Joe returned to the National Alliance to study for and earn his CRM designation in 2009. His goal was to serve his clients and community in helping them better understand their overall risk exposures and how to plan for a more resilient response to the various risk challenges which our clients face. Joe is thrilled to be able to share some of his experience in both Insurance and Risk Management through the National Alliance course offerings.
