Hazen Mirts, a Knoxville native, has been in the insurance business since 1997 after his grandfather, a successful insurance man in Knoxville, planted the seed at a Thanksgiving dinner. Since then, he hasn’t slowed down.
After attending the University of Tennessee and studying Business Administration, Mirts started his career in telecommunications sales, but after a while, he decided that it was time to blaze his own path. His grandfather, also named Hazen, suggested that he join the insurance industry. The next day, Mirts showed up at his grandfather’s firm ready to work.
Wanting to be in control of his own destiny, Mirts left his grandfather’s firm and began an extensive career search in the financial and insurance arenas. He joined the Northwestern Mutual team; his insurance career began. Northwestern Mutual, he felt, had the best foundation and training structure in place for him to grasp the building blocks of insurance. Recognizing a need to provide solutions tailored for each industry, Mirts built what Enrollment First, Inc. is today.
