Mitchell Insurance Services began as a family owned and operated insurance agency in 1971, founded by Robert C. Mitchell. Today, three generations later, Robert C. Mitchell III is now the president and top commercial agent at Mitchell Insurance. Despite growing up in the insurance world, Robert has extensively studied insurance and has achieved the top credentials that an insurance agent can obtain.
In 2008, Robert began his education at Florida State University where he graduated with a degree in Political Science. After graduating, he joined Bankers Insurance before earning his 2-20 and joining Mitchell Insurance Services as a commercial line’s agent. During this time, Robert discovered his passion for insurance education. He enjoyed being able to educate his clients on insurance, and not just selling them a policy. In 2012, Robert earned his Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation, a nationally recognized and highly respected program in insurance business. Then in 2015, Robert earned his Certified Risk Manager (CRM) designation, which is one of the most important designations for risk managers working in insurance. If earning both highly recognized designations wasn’t enough, Robert went back to school at Florida State University and graduated in 2016 with his Master’s in Risk Management Insurance. Robert says that, “Reinvesting my time into continuing education allows me the opportunity to communicate to our clients with the most up to date comprehensive information regarding their insurance policies.”
Robert’s involvement in the insurance community isn’t just in education. He has been an active member of Florida Association of Insurance Agents, Young Agent Council, Community Association Institute, Building Managers International, and even served as the president of Pinellas Association of Insurance agent for two years. Currently, he still serves as an active Board Member of PAIA. When Robert is not at the office, he can be found enjoying Florida’s beautiful weather on the golf course, or spending time with his daughter whom he and his wife welcomed in December 2019.
