WHY HOT? YOUNG BROKER OF THE YEAR
Certainly winning the Young Broker of the Year award was a great accomplishment. It was nice to be acknowledged by my peers for my work in the industry.

What products or upsells are drawing client interest?

Our brokerage specializes in trucking insurance; therefore, my clients and I have many conversations about cargo insurance, contractual requirements, and freight forwarding. Many trucking companies don’t understand how their risk and responsibilities for their cargo change from a carrier to a freight forwarder. Plus, many shippers are downloading additional responsibility for freight to the carrier, which needs to be examined carefully to ensure proper coverage.

Fidelity coverage also seems to enlist strong responses from customers, as we are seeing more and more cases of employees stealing from their employer and it always seems to be that ‘most trusted employee.’
