Employee Spotlight: Dian Lewis

At Ross & Yerger, we believe our employees are a vital part of our company’s continued success and advancement. Get to know our Vice President and Commercial Operations Manager in this month’s Employee Spotlight.

I will have been at R&Y for 25 years this August. I started as an account representative, then moved to a small commercial account manager, then a large commercial account manager, then small commercial/personal lines team leader, then commercial operations manager.

Where did you grow up? I was a navy brat, so I moved a lot. I was born in Meridian, then moved to Oxford, Memphis, Jacksonville and then Mandeville, LA. That is where I still call my hometown.

What do you like to do outside of work? Spend time with my family and watching my children’s different sporting activities.

What is your favorite TV show/movie? The Middle.

What is your favorite sports team? Ole Miss.

What is your favorite food? Red Beans & Rice.

What or who is your favorite band/singer/song? Pretty much all music.

What is one of your biggest pet peeves? People pulling out in front of me while driving.

What has been your best memory while working at R&Y? My most interesting memory at R&Y was funny, but not all that fun. I was on the way back from a business trip in Alabama with the commercial lines manager at the time, and the vehicle we were in broke down. We had to drive all the way back to Jackson in a cramped, very hot tow truck. Most people didn’t have a cell phone at that time, so I didn’t get to speak to anyone at the office. The next day, I found out that the manager told everyone (as a joke) a crazy story about how I broke the car.

Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know about you. I have a degree in Accounting and my MBA.

What is your proudest accomplishment? Being a wife and a mom.

Thanks for being such a great part of the R&Y family, Dian!
