Business Risk Consultant
Meet Nathaniel Johnson
Nathaniel Johnson is a Business Risk Consultant at Granite Insurance. He interned for the agency in 2018 and then joined the team full-time after he graduated from Appalachian State University. He began his journey in insurance by developing procedures for the Risk Placement Specialist position, a role that was new to the agency and required intricate project management skills. He worked as the Risk Placement Specialist for two years before he transitioned to his current role in July of 2021. Nathaniel loves developing complex insurance solutions to risk management needs and setting up everyone he works with for success. He has a passion for fostering relationships with others and enjoys his role in managing relationships between the agency and partner insurance carriers.
Prior to working for the agency, Nathaniel worked for his family’s construction company and also helped family friends in the Christmas tree industry. Because of his prior experience working as a laborer, he understands the day-to-day problems blue collar workers face and hopes to use his knowledge in insurance to reduce some of those burdens. An overall appreciation for the work these industries produce has developed his passion in serving these types of business owners. Nathaniel also volunteers on the Membership Committee for his local Chamber of Commerce. In this role he gets to promote local businesses, promote the Chamber’s efforts, and help the local community come together and thrive!
When not working, Nathaniel can be found spending time with his fiancé Olivia, fishing the various rivers and creeks in the mountains of North Carolina, hanging out with friends and family, or participating in any outdoor activity. For Nathaniel, the only thing better than being outside on a sunny day in the mountains is a day relaxing on the beach.
