ANDREW “A.B.” MEADORS
CEO, Sunstar Insurance of Arkansas
Andrew Meadors is one of just a handful of certified risk managers in Arkansas who does more than just sell insurance. He helps organizations lower their cost of risk. Born and raised in Little Rock, he joined Sunstar in 2016 and specializes in corporate clients. Sunstar has 12 offices in Arkansas and is now the 36th largest insurance group in the U.S. He prides himself on his customer service and makes sure each of his clients has his cell phone number. “Claims, problems and questions can happen at any time! I am there for their convenience. They are not there for mine,” he says. A graduate of Little Rock Catholic High School and Southern Methodist University, he is married to Susan King Meadors.

Who needs flood or earthquake insurance?
Whoever is worried or concerned about either.
What’s the difference between insurance for replacement costs versus actual value?
One word: depreciation!
