FORT WORTH, Texas, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Higginbotham, one of the largest independent insurance firms in the U.S. with more than 20 locations in Texas, hired Producer Robert C. White Jr. to expand the life insurance department at its Fort Worth office. White is former owner of a locally based long term care insurance brokerage firm, and he has broad experience working for financial institutions.
White joins a group of three life insurance brokers at Higginbotham in North Texas who provide personal coverage, executive compensation and estate planning services. They collaborate with the firm's health, home and auto insurance brokers to provide a single source solution to individual customers and employers seeking to supplement their benefit plans.
