Melissa Bennett Simeon

Founder - Bennett Simeon Insurance

After completing her international business studies at the University of Georgia, University of Oxford (UK), and Universidad de Cadiz, Melissa Bennett Simeon decided it was time to return home to a post-Katrina landscape of citizens who were extremely frustrated by insurance, and understandably so. A second generation insurance professional with now almost two decades of experience, Melissa founded Bennett Simeon Insurance, one of the only woman-owned independent insurance agencies in the Greater New Orleans area.

“People spend their entire lives developing their property portfolios, building up their businesses, and to watch them lose all of that because they don’t have proper insurance is devastating,” says Simeon.

Melissa aims to preserve and protect these businesses every day through creative strategies for ensuring challenging risks, a knack for building property insurance programs for large portfolios, and for insuring those in the construction field.

“Being a great insurance agent means constantly educating yourself on new risks, how to insure them, new markets, and new strategies. You have to embrace change and challenge head on to serve your clients best,” says Simeon.

With the team at Bennett Simeon Insurance, no risk is too small, no challenge is too big. At this agency, they love supporting their clients in the community and watching them grow and succeed. That’s what it’s all about.
