Neil is the newest addition to the John Hackney Agency, starting in November of 2018. He began his career in Insurance as a claims adjuster before moving onto the agency side in 2014. Having a claims background gives him a unique perspective that many agents do not have. This allows him to better advocate for his insured during a claim as he understands the process and what it takes to get it handled effectively and with a positive result for his client.

Neil focuses on Commercial and Personal Property & Casualty Insurance. He has experience writing all lines ranging from Commercial Property, General and Professional Liability, Business Auto, Workers Compensation as well as Bonds. He has worked extensively with manufacturers, commercial and residential contractors, condo associations, restaurants, retail business owners and medical offices. On the Home and Auto side, Neil focuses on high value homes for customers that own multiple properties. He can provide wind coverage on the coast for his commercial and personal lines clients.

Neil is born and raised in North Carolina and attended N.C State University, where he graduated with a degree in History. He lives in Raleigh with his wife Margaret and their Scottish Terrier Marla. Margaret is an Attorney with the NC Department of Public Safety where she works closely with the NC Highway Patrol. When he is not working, Neil enjoys spending time with his family traveling or just working around the house. He is an avid NC State fan and tries not to miss a Wolfpack football or basketball game. He also enjoys playing music and is in a local band in Raleigh that he formed with friends he has known since college.
