Paul Brown of Spanish Fort has been named member benefits director of the Alabama Farmers Federation. Brown joined the Federation in 2005 as Area 10 organization director serving southwest Alabama counties. In addition to his new role, he will continue to serve as area organization director for Baldwin, Conecuh, Escambia and Mobile counties.
As member benefits director, Brown will create partnership incentives with groups and companies to add greater value to Federation membership.
Federation Organization Director Mike Tidwell said Brown’s history as an Alfa agent and experience in creating a successful member benefit plan for Baldwin County while working for the Federation molded him for a larger role in the organization’s member benefit program.
“Paul earned the respect of county Federation leaders in south Alabama for his integrity, hard work and loyalty to Alfa, the Federation and our members,” Tidwell said. “He is energetic, innovative and brings a load of experience in both the Federation and Alfa Insurance to his new role.”
Brown said he’s excited about his expanded role and the opportunity to provide members with more value for their dues.
“There’s no question the biggest Federation member benefit is Alfa Insurance,” Brown said.“But with more than 360,000 members statewide, we can use collective bargaining power to negotiate discounts for a variety of products and services for our members.”
A native of Cherokee County, Brown earned his bachelor’s degree in education from Auburn University and before joining the Federation enjoyed a successful career as an Alfa agent. His accomplishments since joining the Federation include the launch of the Fatal Vision program that helps educate high school students about the impacts of drunk and distracted driving.
