The Big Interview
Elyssa Johnson manages the workers compensation team of five people within GSA, and personally oversees an impressive 322 different workers compensation programs.
Having exceeded her budget for the past 36 months, Johnson has led an already well-performing division of the business to achieve even bigger goals, which was recognised in 2012 when she and her team were awarded ‘GSA Division of the Year’.
Johnson was also promoted to divisional manager last year, which “felt like a real reward for my efforts,” she says. And now taking out the number 18 position on the Elite Brokers ranking, Johnson adds another accolade to her list.
“It’s an exciting achievement! I’m honoured to have been ranked in the top 30 so early on in my career. It gives my colleagues and I confidence and a platform that we can build on,” she says. “The insurance industry is tough and competitive but after eight years, I still love what I do and know that I’m adding real value to our clients.”
SUCCESS DRIVER: PUTTING PEOPLE FIRST
“The industry is full of great people, and I enjoy relating with them on a day-to-day basis. Yes, insurance can at times be about processes and procedures, but, more importantly, it is all about relationships with the people you work with and for. As insurance professionals, we should be exciting, surprising and always adding value to the client.”
