CEDAR CITY — A Cedar City insurance executive was recently recognized in a list of the industry movers and shakers.
Diana Granillo, vice president of Cedar City-based Leavitt United Insurance, has been included in Insurance Business America magazine’s “Hot 100” list. This annual report features 100 power players who led the industry to new heights over the past year.
Granillo began her insurance career in 1986 and has worked for both insurance agencies and companies. She joined United Valley in 2004, leading the daily operations of the agency. In January 2006, the board of directors elected Granillo vice president. In addition to the retail agency operations of United Valley, she also has managed the marketing, services and programs departments of the membership organization.
In 2014, the retail agency was renamed Leavitt United Insurance, and since its separation from United Valley, Granillo has focused on building the new entity. She is also an integral part of the merger team, playing a key role in the more than a dozen acquisitions the agency has made over the last 12 years.
The Insurance Business America magazine’s Hot 100 honorees were selected from a pool of nominations from the insurance community and represents a diverse cross-section from CEOs and presidents of major insurers to local heroes.
Some of the featured industry figures hit new revenue targets and experienced impressive organic growth in spite of challenging environments. Others made bold moves on large acquisitions. A few of them created new product lines for emerging industries, while a number became the center of national conversation with divisive advertising tactics.
“The common denominator is that each and every person on the Hot 100 list brought their A-game to the job – and then gave a little more,” said the team at Insurance Business America. “Our hope is that other insurance professionals look over this list and feel inspired to make a little noise and implement the necessary changes to ensure the insurance sector continues basking in the high temperatures.”
