Amanda Huang has over 12 years of experience in the insurance industry, all of which have been spent serving the forest products niche. After graduating from James Madison University in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, Amanda started her insurance career at a Managing General Agency and Wholesaler specializing in the forest products industry. Amanda held nearly every position starting as a front desk assistant, moving to underwriting, and eventually taking on the role of our Chief Operating Officer. When Preston created Continental Underwriters in 2013, it was an easy decision for Amanda to follow him. Since that time, Amanda has worked tirelessly to build a strong foundation for the company to grow. From building agency management systems to developing our internal goals and initiatives to assembling a dream team of individuals to make it all work, Amanda’s main focus is on the achievement of Continental Underwriters’ short and long-term growth strategies. Even with that broad focus, you can still find Amanda involved in much of the day to day underwriting. Her experience and attention to detail make her a key resource for all of our underwriters, and staying involved in the day-to-day underwriting helps her to make informed decisions for the company as a whole.
Amanda has lived in the Richmond area her entire life and now lives in Glen Allen with her husband and 2 young children. In her free time, Amanda enjoys reading, watching movies, cooking, and traveling with her family. Nothing beats cheering on her James Madison University Dukes, though. Go Dukes!
