HOUSTON, Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Higginbotham hired commercial property and casualty insurance broker Ryan B. Dill as associate at its Houston practice. Dill joins Higginbotham's 110 local insurance, risk management and employee benefit professionals after six years in business development with oil and gas service providers in Houston.
"Ryan's experience in the energy sector is a great accompaniment to our current oil and gas practice," said Dudley Ray, managing director of Higginbotham in Houston. "He understands oil and gas operations and speaks their language so he can get them coverage that's right for the industry. We have a number of specialty practice groups in industries beyond energy for that very reason."
Dill was most recently a business developer and corporate account manager at Hunting Energy Services, a manufacturer and distributer of oil and gas products. Since starting in 2011, he established three profitable North American territories representing more than 75 accounts, achieving record revenue. He was also involved with international oil and gas markets, crisis management and sales staff training. Before that, Dill was an operations and sales manager for SMS Precision Tech, a machine parts manufacturer working in the oil and gas industry.
Raised in Tomball, Texas, Dill is active in its local political scene and provided volunteer campaign management assistance for Dr. Tom Oliverson's successful bid for Texas State Representative, District 130. He also frequently volunteers with WoodsEdge Community Church where he is a member with his wife and daughters, ages 4 and 7.
