Clay is a surety producer with Marsh & McLennan Agency, who partners with contractors of all sizes to assist them in achieving both their corporate and personal goals. Clay started in the surety industry in 2013 shortly after graduating from Lenoir-Rhyne University. There he was a four-year letter winner in baseball, and he graduated at the top of the Charles M. Snipes School of Business with BA's in Accounting and Finance. Clay has a passion for the construction industry thanks to his father who has been in the industry for over 30 years. During his time as both a surety underwriter and agent, Clay has learned that it's not simply the end product that matters most in our industry, but rather the relationships.
