Young Agent Updates - November 2017

    Meet a Committee Member

    I've stayed active with the young agents committee since 2013 attending events, and just joined the committee this past January. I started in commercial lines marketing on the agency side and am currently working as a professional lines broker with clients across the whole country. Throughout my career, I've developed a true passion for the insurance industry as a whole. Perpetuating the development and retention of young talent within the industry is of paramount importance to me. My main focus on the committee is to grow the young agents' footprint as much as possible, both in Massachusetts and across all the other states I work in. 

    We are fortunate in this state to have a strong community within the industry, and the young agents committee is no exception! Recently, on 10/26, we hosted a reception with the support of Plymouth Rock Assurance for The Big Event that was very well attended by a wide variety of insurance professionals. The event went off without a hitch and was a night to remember; as we celebrated our InsurPAC achievements, the announcement of our new chairperson, and awarded the Young Agent of the Year.

    Mark Gratta, of Marchionne Insurance, was announced as young agent of the year. Most deserving of his accolades, Mark is both hardworking and humble. He stays very active with all the young agents' initiatives, the epitome of what makes a strong young agent. Mike Dye, of Marsh & McLennan Agency, was nominated and elected chair of the young agents committee for 2018. Mike is a natural leader will fit into his new role seamlessly. We are looking forward to great things from him and are anticipating another year of continued fun and success with the young agents committee. Lastly, a number of our committee members were able to support and attend the Make-A-Wish Foundation's Wine and Wishes event. This is always a very well attended event for the most laudable cause. Friday 10/27 was no exception and we look forward to our continued involvement in the years to come!
