It is with great pleasure that we announce to you the merger of Cannon Aviation Insurance, Inc. with Ladd Gardner Aviation Insurance Agency, Inc. This is the coming together of two family-owned, well-established agencies within the industry. For many years the Cannon family has built long lasting friendships and business partnerships with their clients all over the country, and Mr. Cannon has found the perfect way to continue that legacy by passing the torch to Ms. Angie Harris and Mr. Ladd Gardner.
Ladd Gardner comes from a family rich in aviation. As the son of a cropduster and warbird airshow pilot, he grew up on a small family airstrip where he learned at an early age what really goes into owning an airplane. In high school he and his family restored a Boeing Stearman which he later took to college and earned a Bachelors Degree in Aviation Science. After college, he worked as a CFI before later moving on to fly the Metroliner, the T6 Texan, the P51 Mustang, and the P38 Lightning. Ladd went on to pursue his career as an aviation insurance agent and eventually founded his own agency which today continues to prosper in Addison, Texas.
Angie Harris, who has served as President of Cannon Aviation Insurance for the past 5 years, will maintain a lead role in the new agency. Angie attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Daytona Beach, FL) where she graduated with a degree in Aviation Safety and a minor in Human Factors. She has worked with an aerospace design company performing certification flights aboard private jet aircraft and later became a System Safety Engineer at Boeing working on the Apache AH-64 attack helicopter. She eventually found her dream career in the aviation insurance industry, being able to work directly with aircraft owners and pilots every day.
Ladd and Angie will be supported by a stellar team of individuals who carry with them much expertise in the aviation insurance field. They will include Tammy Orth (Aviation Insurance Agent), Belinda Castillo (Aviation Insurance Agent), Jenifer Morales (Renewal Coordinator), and Debbie Mullins (Accounting Manager). This new partnership will prove to be most beneficial to our clients with the utmost superior level of service and a shared passion for the world of aviation. The new office will be based in Addison, TX at the address listed below.
We welcome any questions or concerns regarding this new partnership, so please do not hesitate to contact Angie Harris or Bob Cannon if you wish to discuss this transition. We are looking forward to working with each and every one of you!
