Paul Hawkins

President & CEO, HawkSoft

Paul Hawkins began developing HawkSoft’s first software program while working as an independent insurance agent in Portland, Oregon. He witnessed, first-hand, the opportunities for improving agency efficiency and support that software automation could provide the industry. During his career as an insurance agent, Paul developed many software tools that he and co-workers deployed to boost their agency’s success.

In 1995, Paul co-founded HawkSoft with his son and son-in-law to devote his full attention to helping push the independent insurance agent channel forward. Paul serves as President and CEO of HawkSoft, and is an active member of the Board of Directors.

He is a frequent speaker at insurance industry events and has received the Legend Award from The Brokers Insurance Group. In his free time, Paul enjoys woodworking, spending time with his family, and working on his farm.
