IRVING, Texas, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Allstate Insurance Company has named Larry Sedillo Field Senior Vice President for the company's Texas Region, where he will lead business operations and be responsible for Allstate's profitable growth in the state.
Being appointed to this top spot in Texas has special meaning to the Allstate executive because he started his career more than 25 years ago in El Paso as an Allstate agent. After eight years as an agent directly serving Texas customers, he became a manager and devoted the next 10 years to various sales leadership roles in the Texas Region.
In 2007, Mr. Sedillo left Texas for assignments in California, Illinois and New York. Most recently, he was vice president in the company's Northbrook, Illinois headquarters in the sales department. In this position, he developed and led strategies designed to enhance sales education programs for agency owners and the managers who work with them.
"It's great to be home," Mr. Sedillo said. " Texas is where I started my Allstate career and I am grateful and eager to lead Allstate's operations in this great state. I am confident we are uniquely positioned to serve Texas consumers better than any other insurer. Our products are competitively priced and our agency owners and their staffs are the best in the business. It's an exciting time for Allstate in Texas."Mr. Sedillo will be based in Irving. He replaces Phil Lawson, who is retiring after 36 years with the company. The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) is the nation's largest publicly held personal lines insurer, serving approximately 16 million households through its Allstate, Encompass, Esurance and Answer Financial brand names and Allstate Financial business segment. Allstate branded insurance products (auto, home, life and retirement) and services are offered through Allstate agencies, independent agencies, and Allstate exclusive financial representatives, as well as via www.allstate.com, www.allstate.com/financial and 1-800 Allstate ®, and are widely known through the slogan "You're In Good Hands With Allstate ®." As part of Allstate's commitment to strengthen local communities, The Allstate Foundation, Allstate employees, agency owners and the corporation provided $29 million in 2012 to thousands of nonprofit organizations and important causes across the United States.
