After nearly six years as one of Lyons & Butler Insurance Brokers’ top commercial producers, Stanislav Kojokin partnered with a fellow associate in April of this year to develop a new brokerage, KASE Insurance, that specializes in commercial insurance. Kojokin sits on the board of directors for the Insurance Brokers of Toronto Region and is currently working on his CRM designation.
Active in sports, he also plays for and manages a Toronto men’s soccer team, participates in various charity races annually, and is an avid swimmer.
“When I started applying for commercial insurance producer positions, I was declined on numerous occasions due to lack of experience. A lot of small and mid-size brokerages today are looking for experienced producers with an existing book of business to join their team. In order to attract young talent, brokerages should invest in training and mentorship programs.”
