Client Executive, Partner

Harrison Barnes’ illustrious career has been in service to the foundational principles of the risk and insurance industry–keeping his clients free from loss, protected by good policy, and positioned for success. Harrison often refers to himself as a “generalist” in the sense that his expertise spans every major industry sector, given his experience managing risks for enterprises ranging from multinational corporations to small business.

Before joining Sentinel, Harrison managed business development efforts for a large brokerage firm in Columbia, S.C., and prior to that, he played a lead role on an international risk management team in Charlotte.  He has amassed an impressive client roster over the years, with notable firms from the construction, service, wholesale, manufacturing and transportation industries, among others.

Harrison’s civic endeavors include volunteering with The Therapy Place, a non-profit that provides education and therapy for children with disabilities. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University.
