Mark Melton, MS - Co-founder & President
I was born and grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina and love calling Wilmington and Eastern North Carolina home. I started my insurance career in 2013 after a house fire where I lost most everything I owned and found out I didn't have the proper insurance coverage to allow me to rebuild my life. At the time of the fire I was in Graduate School at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, my wife and I had been married a little over a year, and my wife was 36 weeks pregnant with our first son! I knew nothing about insurance, how it worked, what I needed to cover my family, or what to do even if I had the proper insurance coverage in place. I felt powerless and personally experienced what it was like to rebuild from nothing due to not having the proper insurance to cover my possessions and my family.
As we gathered our life back together I decided to take action to make sure that what happened to me didn't happen to others. I finished my Graduate Degree in 2013 and opposed to using my degree immediately I obtained my insurance licences and began working for a local Allstate agent. I spent two years learning all I could about different insurance policy types, coverage's, and ensuring everyone I encountered knew the value of a well informed Insurance Agent and Agency. The response I saw from this approach was amazing... both personally and professionally. I went on to open my own Allstate Agency and then left Allstate and opened A&M Insurance Private Insurance Group in 2019. A&M Insurance is an independent agency that allows us to offer multiple carriers to give our client options to meet their needs and price ranges.

I was born and grew up in Mobile, AL. Soon after graduating high school in 2007, I joined the Marine Corps, which ultimately brought me to North Carolina. I left the Marine Corps in 2013 to pursue a civilian lifestyle and remained in New Bern. I began my insurance career in 2015 as a sales agent with Allstate in New Bern. Surrounding hurricane Florence, I gained much experience with and came to specialize in flood insurance. In December 2019, I left my position at Allstate to join A&M Insurance.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my children and working on my various projects and toys.
