At Conrey Insurance Brokers, it’s all about our people. It’s been widely said that “the people” are the backbone of any organization. To that end, we believe we have the BEST backbone in the industry – so we make it a point to recognize team member excellence on a monthly and quarterly basis.

 

The Conrey Insurance Brokers “Players of the Month” for June, July and August, AND the Player of the 2nd Quarter 2018 are: (Drum roll)

 

Gabriela Villa Gutierrez

Player of the Month – June  

Gabriela was chosen as Player of the Month for her great positive attitude, her ability to learn new skills and immediately put them to use – and for her great demeanor as a professional and all-around team player. Gaby is a great account manager that knows no boundaries of what she can achieve.

 

Linda Worthington

Player of the Quarter – 2nd Quarter 2018

Player of the Month – July

It’s not surprising that Linda is “Double Player”, because each and every day she brings a fresh and “can do” attitude to every responsibility or task assigned – and she does it all with aplomb, expediency and accuracy. I have nothing but praise for Linda and her contributions to our on-going success.

 

Marsha Multz

Player of the Month – August

Marsha is our August Player of the Month because of the significant impact her sales success has brought to the agency – combined with her efforts with Alex to land some great new accounts. Marsha brings decades of experience to the table, along with a renewed commitment to “The Conrey Difference” – which based on her recent performance is proving to be a great combination.

 

Thank you Gabriela, Linda and Marsha for all you have done and achieved – and keep up the great work.

It’s Our Favorite Holiday of the Year

Happy National Insurance Awareness Day! Have you heard of it? Maybe not. Watch this short video to see why proper coverage is so important. While any day is a good day to protect the things that are most precious to you, National Insurance Awareness Day is a holiday that prompts everyone to take a closer look at their insurance in order to truly understand what it covers and to what extent. Here are just a few of the reasons you may want to re-evaluate your coverage:

  • Changes in Value- As time goes on, some assets, including your home or car, may grow or shrink in value. It is important to consider these changes in order to make sure your coverage is enough.
  • Life Changes and Major Events- From marriage, to children, to career changes, or retirement, major lifestyle changes can increase (or decrease) the amount of coverage you need in order to protect your family’s lifestyle.
  • You’ve Changed- Perhaps you’ve lost a few pounds or quit smoking. These changes can be reflected in your insurance costs, saving you money as a bonus perk.
  • Changes in Your Business Status- Have you started your own business? Has your business grown or downsized? You’ll want to make sure your enterprise is fully covered.
  • You Want Savings- Depending on a variety of factors, reevaluating your insurance can save you money, both in the long and short run.

Just like an annual check-up with your doctor is a priority, make sure an evaluation of your insurance coverage is a priority too.  It’s as simple as contacting Conrey Insurance Brokers for a free insurance check-up. We understand the importance of providing you with proper protection through the best insurers with the most competitive pricing. Our goal is for you to achieve peace of mind knowing what matters most to you is properly protected, because at Conrey Insurance Brokers, every day is National Insurance Awareness Day. World-class service is our promise – that’s the Conrey Difference.

So mark your calendars for June 28th and let us celebrate National Insurance Awareness Day by making sure you are properly protected. To schedule your free insurance check-up, simply call us at 1-877-450-1872, or online and experience The Conrey Difference for yourself.

 

 

Congratulations Kitty Nouskajian-Player of the Quarter

“There are not enough accolades to shower on Kitty and her contributions, at Conrey Insurance Brokers. Kitty is affectionately known as the “Queen of Certificates,” but she is truly so much more; helping clients and her co-workers accomplish whatever the task is before them with aplomb. Kitty possesses a “can do” attitude and a caring personality, it comes natural to the grandmother of ten – her approach is supportive and positive, and she is a delight to work with. When I go into the field to visit clients, I am regularly asked if Kitty is with me, and when she isn’t, there’s disappointment. Kitty brings an air of professionalism to her every interaction, and it is without reservation that she was named our Outstanding Player of the 4th Quarter, and I ask that you join me in congratulating Kitty on a job very well done.” – Jerry Conrey, Agency Principal

Kudos go out to Kitty Nouskajian, Commercial Lines Assistant, who was just named as the Conrey Insurance Brokers Player of the Quarter for the 4th Quarter of 2017!
Her official duties are primarily to issue Certificates of Insurance and Cancellations for Non-Payment, and to notify clients of those cancellations – hopefully with the outcome that the premium is collected and the account renewed for another year.

However, in Kitty’s case, she is so much more. Every office has one person to whom everyone else turns for simple answers, aid and assistance. After seven years at Conrey Insurance Brokers and Risk Management, Kitty is that person. She has always worked in service-oriented positions and her training shines through. As one co-worker puts it… “Kitty is always helpful and kind.”

When asked why she thinks she received the award, she replied, “I think it’s because of my positive attitude.” Kitty has the unusual privilege of working with her husband, Gary. When asked about this and whether or not she finds it challenging, she resoundingly responded, “We both love working together, very much!”

Speaking of Kitty and her husband working together, one thing that is very convenient is the fact that they are both avid Angels baseball fans and season ticket holders. This works out well when there is a game after work, they come in wearing red and go straight to the stadium.

Perhaps the halo that Kitty seems to wear during the day serves to set the tone for her team at night! Congratulations, Kitty… keep up the good work!
