Dallas, TX—IRMI Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Harrington, CRIS, CPCU, served as a cochair and speaker at this year's Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) Women in Insurance Texas/Southeast Regional Forum in Dallas, Texas, on June 21. IRMI has been a proud supporter of IICF since 2012, and it was thrilling to see Ms. Harrington take the stage and share her knowledge and valuable insight with the Forum attendees.

Ms. Harrington began her insurance career in 1983 and has served in a variety of roles, including educator, writer/editor, underwriter, sales agent, field representative, and agency operations manager.

Previously, she served for 11 years as vice president of education for the Florida Association of Insurance Agents.

All of the proceeds from sales of Ms. Harrington's book, Taking in Strays: Leadership Lessons from Unexpected Places, went to the IICF Early Literacy Initiative.
