Since 2001, Roland Hawthorne has focused on providing individuals, small business owners, and corporate executives with life, disability, and long term care insurance to solve their personal, business, and retirement planning needs. Roland’s knowledge and experience enable him to provide tax-advantaged solutions to problems faced by individuals due to personal and business circumstances. In addition to the individual market, he markets and sells other services in the areas of employee benefits, retirement plan assets, and commercial lines of insurance.

Previously in his career, Roland was a consultant in the health care industry. He was part of the development team that founded the first publicly traded company, which merged an insurance product and financial product together to provide catastrophic disability coverage and extended lifetime caps for major medical coverage. It was the first product ever endorsed by Christopher Reeve.

Roland was born and raised in Washington, D.C., and completed his college studies at the University of Maryland.

Like The Meltzer Group, Roland is very involved in civic activities and believes in giving back to the community. His participation in the community includes fundraising activities and volunteering his time to organizations like the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington, Washington Tennis and Education Foundation, the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Junior Achievement, the Greater Washington Urban League, Urban Technology Center, For Love of Children, and Adventure Theatre MTC. In addition, he has served as a member of several committees with the Greater Washington Board of Trade, the DC Chamber of Commerce, and the Associated Builders and Contractors of Metropolitan Washington.
