Nick Ayers, Chief Marketing Officer  |  Better Agency


Nicholas Ayers has worked in the insurance industry since 2005 where he started as a sales producer. In 2012, he opened his first scratch independent agency.

In 2019, Nicholas joined an insurtech startup, “Better Agency” as its co-founder and chief marketing officer.


Better Agency is the first sales-driven AMS and uses policy downloads to trigger hundreds of automation campaigns for sales, service, claims and renewals.


Nicholas’s passions and skills center around marketing, technology, automation, and insurance agency operations.
