young agents take on the hard market: working with carriers

As part of a special hard market bonus podcast series on Agency Nation Radio, the Big “I" Young Agents Committee (YAC) has partnered with Trusted Choice® to deliver information on the importance of mentorship in independent agencies.

On this episode, Adam Risman, commercial risk advisor at Risman Insurance in Medford, Massachusetts, and Haley Meisner, senior vice president of independent agency distribution strategy at Liberty Mutual, went behind the microphone to talk about the importance of relationships between agencies and carriers during the hard market.

Moderated by Cassandra Koegel, a member of the national YAC and commercial lines producer at Eastern Insurance in Watertown, Massachusetts, the conversation focused on how the hard market has impacted agents and carriers across the country, providing some perspective from both sides of the distribution channel.

“Agents rely on carriers for placement," Meisner said. “They are the supplier, at the end of the day, the underwriting paper. So, it's so important that we realize that reliance on one another and we're partnering together and get out of this successfully. Communication is one thing, but what is in that communication? Education is key right now."

Agency Nation Radio is where insurance professionals turn on the mic and share unscripted stories about leadership, technology, marketing, success, and failure—stories that helped make them the professionals they are today. From Main Street USA to the pages of Independent Agent magazine—we've got the stories you want to hear.
