Joel Lourie, like his father before him, has been serving the public for most of his adult life. Now, after 18 years of service, he’s retiring from the South Carolina Legislature to devote himself full-time to his other calling – helping people of all ages and incomes find the affordable health insurance they need.
Outside of politics, Joel has a 30-year background as a business owner and consultant to improve the bottom line of small to medium sized business. His experience coordinating the sales and marketing for one of the largest national insurance brokers in the industry led to his creating Lourie Life and Health with partner Chris Johnson.
Joel has always believed in giving back to his community. Over the years, he has concentrated on issues that have a profound impact on the lives of all South Carolina’s people, such as education, safety, child welfare and healthcare for all.
With Lourie Life and Health, he’s continuing the mission.
