Our Insurance Agents Are Here to Serve You

Helen Crockett, AFIS

President

Prior to forming The Crockett Insurance Group, Helen Crockett has actively worked in the Vero Beach insurance industry since 1988. During this time, she has developed an expertise in coverages critical to the commerce of Vero Beach. Of particular note is her experience in agri-business and in construction. Few, if any, insurance agents share her in-depth knowledge of the complex coverages required in insuring the risks in today’s agricultural industry. When not leading the agents at The Crockett Group, Helen stays busy with children and grandchildren, volunteers with various charities, serves on the Board at Habitat for Humanity, and is active in her church.

Jim Crockett

Vice-President

Following a successful career as a marketing manager of industrial packaging materials for Owens-Illinois and twenty thriving years in the Florida citrus industry, Jim Crockett chose to begin a third career by joining his wife in establishing an independent insurance agency in 2008. Although a “new-comer” to insurance at that time, Jim has found that his broad career track has served him well in administering the business of The Crockett Group. Finances, marketing, business development, and office administration all fall under his leadership. Away from the agency, Jim is involved in church leadership and serves on the board at The Source, a homeless resource center.
