Houston, Tx – Jan 5, 2017 – Every year National Underwriter Life & Health Magazine recognizes the top four of America’s best and brightest insurance executives.  The winners this year stand out at a time when the industry is undergoing unprecedented challenges and needs the kind of leadership, drive, and brilliance that only the Industry Elites can offer. This award is highly coveted as the winners are chosen by peers that review the finalists for their contribution and innovation to the field.

Leasha West, CEO and Founder of West Insurance & Financial Group, Inc. took top honors as the only female selected as the Industry Elite.

West sits on the board of directors for numerous non-profit organizations and actively mentors college students as they prepare for their chosen field. As a result of her outstanding volunteer efforts, she was awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award by President Barack Obama.

“Just as I served my country, I believe it’s my duty to humanity and my obligation to society to continue to serve others,” says West. “Let’s face it, there’s no shortage of people who need help. I encourage everyone to go help someone every day or give back in some way.”
