Brent Watkins

Brent Watkins began his career as an employee benefits consultant with Pancoast Benefits in 1996 and has served as President since 2006. He is a graduate of the University of Mississippi with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.

In the early years, he worked alongside founder Fred Pancoast, managing sales but also doing anything and everything that was needed to serve our clients and help the company grow.

Brent, like Fred before him, is proud of the workplace Pancoast has built. He watches the team pull together during crunch times, such as annual enrollment periods. “Those are my proudest moments, seeing how loyal everyone is, not just to the company but more importantly to our clients. If it takes a week of 12-hour work days to make sure everything is handled properly for a client renewal, we never have to ask—our crew always rises to the occasion without question.”

Brent is an active member in the National Association of Health Underwriters and past president of the Middle Tennessee Association of Health Underwriters. He and his wife Krissi, a Nashville native, have four daughters.
