Acentria Insurance Announces Executive Promotions


Acentria Insurance, a premier independent insurance agency in the Southeastern United States, has announced essential executive leadership promotions in continuing to elevate the strength of their executive leadership team. In addition, the promotions help to further leverage Acentria Insurance as they continue to experience significant growth and expansion within the marketplace.

Effective immediately, Kendall McEachern, co-founder of Acentria Insurance, will serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors. McEachern is a 35-year industry veteran who co-founded Acentria Insurance in 2010. Launching the agency with only 25 team members, his leadership has been instrumental to growing the Acentria family to over 600 team members and approximately $90 million in annualized revenue. As Chairman, McEachern will continue to be involved with Acentria’s further growth and expansion by overseeing mergers and acquisitions.

Kevin Mason, co-founder of Acentria Insurance, will take the reins as Chief Executive Officer and oversee the agency as he leads in the company’s organic growth strategy and execution. Mason previously served as the President of Acentria Insurance and brings with him almost three decades of industry experience. As a nationally recognized top producer and agent, Mason is committed to continuing the level of customer service for the agency’s clients along with fostering the positive corporate culture for its team members that has allowed Acentria to be named as an Employer of Choice and Top Insurance Workplace.

Mary Lawless has been promoted to President while continuing to serve as Chief Operations Officer. She has held a variety of senior management positions in Personal Lines, Select Business and Employee Benefits along with Agency Operations. In her new role, Lawless will develop insurance solutions that will continue to strengthen Acentria’s presence in the market and its commitment to client-relationships and exceptional service, all while overseeing day to day agency operations. With over 30-years of insurance experience, she is passionate about developing team members to become great leaders.

“Both Kevin and Mary have played an integral role in Acentria’s success,” says McEachern, Chairman of Acentria Insurance. “These promotions are not only well-deserved, but they represent a further evolution of our management structure by promoting from within, all while offering our team members and industry leaders an opportunity to further their personal and professional development.”
