The Agency Development Department continues to make strides to form the best possible team of experts for our members! Tony Caldwell, OAA CEO, has some exciting announcements to share about a couple new faces on the AD team.
New Team Member Updates
Jeana Courtois has officially made a transition in our company to Agency Development. Her specialty in operational management could be a great help to your insurance agency.
Another new member of the Agency Development team is Ryan McLaughlin. He is an Agency Development Field Specialist and is an expert in commercial business.
Ryan McLaughlin is a terrific new hire that we have made recently at OAA. Ryan's had a long career in producing successfully commercial insurance businesses and has joined our Agency Development Team. One of the things that Ryan is doing is leading the charge in Business Insurance Advantage at SIAA's Training Program for people who want to learn how to write commercial insurance successfully. Both BIA and Ryan can be a big help to you or your producers if you're interested in growing your commercial insurance business. If you'd like to learn more, contact Ryan by reaching out to our Agency Development Team.
