Chief Executive Officer, IIANC Cary, NC

Aubie Knight, CIC, CRM is the Chief Executive Officer of the Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina.

Aubie works with the IIANC Board of Directors to help set the strategic direction and vision of the association.  He is then responsible for leading the staff in the implementation of the tactics needed to move the organization towards those goals.

Aubie is known throughout both the association world and the insurance industry for his bold visions, creative approaches to problem solving and a constant desire for growth and evolution.  He takes great pride in the fact that IIANC has been listed as a top employer in North Carolina for three consecutive years and that the IIANC team has an office culture and engagement score ranked in the top 1% of US employers.

As a result of his vision and leadership skills, Aubie has served on numerous Boards in both the association and insurance industries.  He is constantly challenging himself and any organization that he is affiliated with to “get better”!

During his free time, Aubie loves spending time with his family, smoking meats, listening to live music and visiting craft beer breweries.  Aubie is a graduate of the University of Georgia and a huge Bulldog fan (and season ticket holder).  Go Dawgs!  

Fun facts about Aubie:
  • He loves competing (in anything!) and has completed dozens of triathlons, road races, mud races, obstacle course races, half-marathons, one marathon, and still plays in a basketball league (yes, the over 40 League!)
  • He won Mutual of Omaha's "Rookie of the Year" sales award in 1992.  The prize for winning was a trip to games 3 and 4 of the 1992 World Series in Toronto.  Even though his Braves lost both games in heartbreaking fashion, Aubie credits this trip for getting him hooked on the insurance business.
