Company Structure
Our unique employee structure allows individuality and freedom that will enliven those with an entrepreneurial spirit while at the same time provides the guidance and support a successful sales person needs to build and retain a client base both from a corporate and client service perspective. This structure proves an asset to seasoned and green sales executives alike; those with an existing book have the support to continue to service an ever expanding client based as they continue to sell, while inexperienced sales executives have the guidance and support in the form of product and sales training to bolster their skills as they become fluent in the world of insurance and risk management.

Compensation Structure
Our compensation structure is designed to support our sales executives’ success. Our new sales executives start out as salaried employee-owners and as they progress toward their validation - or attainment of predetermined sales goals over a 3 year, or 36 month period - their compensation gradually shifts to commission only. This compensation plan insures that our sales people are able to focus on learning and understanding the product they will be providing more heavily at the beginning of their career, when they really need to take the time to study.

In addition to our innovative compensation plan, we provide an employee stock ownership program (ESOP). Over a seven year period, our employee owners become fully vested in stock of our company, which in the past year has reached over $1,100 per share!

Three Year Training Program
Our customized three year training and validation program is designed to set our sales executives up for success. Upon hire, our sales executives join a cohort of other sales executives still in the first 36 months of their validation schedule. As a sales team, they participate in monthly sales training sessions and weekly conference calls in addition to other corporate sales and product training initiatives. These weekly and monthly touches ensure that our sales executives feel the support of a team beside them as they develop and hone their knowledge and skills. Additionally, we have directors and managers in each division who provide further, one-on-one and group training or advice, as needed.
