At the age of 34, Elizabeth Rook has become one of Memphis’s most successful businesswomen in the insurance industry. She attributes her success to having worked with and being mentored by her father, Ron Rook, for over 15 years. Her father was an extremely successful insurance agent, who owned two
of the most successful Allstate Agencies in the country. She was involved in the sales, management and marketing of their family business and learned a tremendous amount about every aspect of the insurance industry from him.
After leaving Allstate at the end of 2012, Elizabeth decided to branch out and open her own company, Elizabeth Rook Insurance. Although it was definitely a leap of faith, she believes that her partnership with Erie Insurance Company has been her best career move to date. She opened a second location in her first year with Erie Insurance. She has recruited some of the most knowledgeable and successful insurance agents in the Memphis Area. Her agency services multiple lines of insurance, including home, auto, life and all types of commercial policies. She has won dozens of business and insurance awards throughout the years. She was awarded Small Business Woman of the Year at the age of 29. Considering she started her insurance agency from scratch, her proudest achievement so far was being awarded “New Erie Agent of the Year – 2013.”
Elizabeth also understands the importance of volunteering and giving back to her local community. Being a mother of two young daughters, Taylor and Jaime, she is extremely passionate about education and helping children that are less fortunate. She is a Red Cross Volunteer and her company makes significant financial contributions to the local schools systems and athletic programs. Elizabeth and her team members are also heavily involved with many organizations focused on building strong businesses throughout the community. The purpose of her agents are to be respected professionals and trusted advisors.
“My family and I grew up in a small town about 30 miles outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Here in the south, I was raised to mind my manners, respect my elders and have a genuine, down-to-earth attitude. Basically it is just Southern Hospitality. I take pride in the fact that the majority of my business comes directly from referrals. When people tell their friends, family and colleagues about you, it’s one of the best compliments your business can get.”
