George Ferrell

Heritage Specialty Insurance was originally formed in Denton, Texas by George in 2004. Prior to beginning Heritage Specialty, George spent several years as a commercial casualty underwriter at the insurance company level and later expanded into Surplus Lines insurance. On the Surplus Lines side, he has held the positions of Commercial Casualty and Reinsurance Underwriter for a General Lines agency, manager of a competing Surplus Lines agency, and the administration of a program specializing in oilfield property and casualty risks.  Though George later sold Heritage Specialty he is still very much a part of the picture both as the father of Tanya Brakner and friend of current ownership.
