"The Durham area continues to see dramatic population growth, attracting a large number of young professionals and growing families due to the high demand for tech jobs," Ratliff said. "We look forward to building a long-term relationship with residents living near Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, Pittsboro and Morrisville and meeting all their insurance needs as they change over time."

Joining Ratliff, who has worked in the insurance industry for more than 20 years, are staff members Taisia Johnson, Christine Teeter, Brittny Howard, Tanara Lee, Howard Warner and Andrea Ratliff.
