High Country Agency Staff


Bart Garrison, CIC - Email Bart

I started my insurance career in 1985 and joined the High Country Agency in 2005 when my family and I moved to Ruidoso. Believing that it is important to give back to the community I belong to, I have served on numerous boards including: board member, past president and current member of the Ruidoso Rotary Club; board member and chairman of the Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce; board member and treasurer of the Lincoln County Home Builders Association; member and board member of One Church; member of the New Mexico Amigos; and on the Planning and Zoning Commission for Ruidoso. I truly enjoy Ruidoso and working with the best insurance team in New Mexico.

I was born and raised here in the beautiful mountains of Ruidoso. I have watched this small town grow into a popular tourist town. I have been a part of the Roadrunner Food Distribution and the backpack program. I also completed Leadership Lincoln and have served on the board. In the year of 2016 I was selected as the Customer Service Representative of year for the state of New Mexico in the Insurance industry. I love supporting the community in any way that I can. I was given the opportunity to come work for High Country Agency in May 2013 and that December received my Insurance license. Coming from having no experience in insurance, I have immensely expanded my knowledge of the industry and intend to let it keep growing. I enjoy the people I work with and am so glad to be a part of the High Country Agency Family.
