Meet Our Team



Brian Ackerman
Principal Agent

I’ve been working with insurance for over 20 years having worked my way from the ground-up. My tenure and experience has allowed me to not only understand the ins-and-outs of insurance, but also to service hundreds of families regarding their protection needs. I am confident, I can help you protect the things that are important to YOU – your family, home, car, boat and others.

I’m proud to work with a company who’s been serving satisfied customers for over 70 years. I know I can offer quality insurance that’s affordable and provide easy access for you to contact me in person, over the phone, or through my website – wherever and whenever you need. Here at Ackerman Insurance Team we understand the importance of a competitive price and we also believe that personal customer service are the keys for a long-lasting relationship with YOU!

Team AgentTeam

I grew up in Hamilton, Ohio and I have been working with Insurance for over 10 years.

What most excites me about my role and contributions is  being able to help people with their insurance needs and going above and beyond their expectations.

Personally, I love spending time with family. I always love it when we are together visiting and exploring new places and things.

Christine Phillips
Team Agent

I am an Ohio native but have also spent many years in Michigan and Maine. I obtained two degrees in Business Management and International Commerce while living in Maine.

When it comes to insurance, I’ve been licensed for Property & Casualty since 2013 and Life licensed since 2017. Most people dislike paying for insurance because it’s something they hardly use, but to me it is very fulfilling to take the time to make sure clients are properly covered, so that when/if something does happen their assets, families, and lives are protected.

What I enjoy the most is spending time with my kids whether it be exploring nature, visiting new places, or just hanging out at the park. On a weekend you can find us relaxing, reading a good book, or hiking some local trails. One thing customers may not know about me is that I am a total nerd, and if I have any downtime you will always find me reading a good book, watching a documentary, or having group discussions about world news and politics.

I also love volunteering and being active in my local community for just about any cause or civic duty.

Megan Isgro

I grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Cincinnati.

Educating customers on their insurance policies so they feel comfortable they are well protected is what I enjoy most about my job and I have done so for the last 15 years.

I love my family! I have 3 boys, 2 dogs and an amazing husband to go home to everyday.Outside of work, I am always keeping up with everyone at home, usually attending a sporting event for one of the boys.

When I do find a few minutes to myself, I always like grab the latest book I am reading.

I was born and raised in Hamilton Ohio. I come from a family of 4 Brothers and 1 Twin Sister!

I’ve been involved with insurance now going on 30 years. Since 1989 I’ve worked with independent and captive agencies. I am currently licensed in Property & Casualty in the state of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, along with being life licensed as well. When it comes to my everyday role, I really enjoy getting to know my clients and building a personal relationship with them. I want them to be able to trust me to take care of them should something happen. I want them to know that they can count on me to get it done.

Spending time with my husband of almost 34 years and with my 11 grand children….My Pride and joy is what I love to do most ! When I’m not working, you can find me outside by the pool, or watching one of my grand kids play ball. Playing Piano is something that I also enjoy very much on Sundays at Church.I have played the Piano at church since I was 13 years old, also have done 6 Gospel recordings!

When it comes to volunteering, I love to do anything that involves kids or the elderly. My heart has a tender place for them
