Cameron Ezell specializes in Group Benefits for our business clients. He is responsible for helping clients with new and existing group benefits for their business. Before joining our team, Cameron was manager of a local business and a salesman at Nissan of Gadsden. In both roles, Cameron demonstrated a concern and compassion for others.
As a salesman, he knew the job wasn’t over at the sell, it was done when the customer returned later to tell him how happy they were with the choice. That commitment to customers as well as the business made him an award-winning employee. His love of people naturally comes out as he speaks of family. Cameron met his wife Savannah in 2010 and was married in 2016. They are members at Meadowbrook Church in Rainbow City, AL. When Cameron is not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his family.
