Again this month, Schwartz Insurance Group selected one peer-nominated associate to receive a Core Value award. The winner is chosen because they "lived” one of our agency’s core values … typically an event or accomplishment above and beyond the call of duty in servicing our customers. This month, Robin Clark was selected – here’s Robin’s story:
Dozens of companies … hundreds of schedules … thousands of clients. It all adds up to opportunities for error. And, when the errors impact revenue and sales compensation, that makes this a big priority.
Every single month, the “back office” responsibility of downloading, reviewing and approving every last commission dollar falls on one person’s shoulders. It takes brains. It takes focus. It even takes humor.
We are fortunate to have one person with a healthy mix of all three. Our Core Value Winner for March– Robin Clark— lives Consider it Done!
Congratulations Robin! Here’s a bit more about her, in her own words:
1. Tell us a little bit about the type of work you do for Schwartz Insurance Group.
I do the Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Billing, and Auditing Commissions for Schwartz.
2. When you aren’t at work, what keeps you busy?
My son, Wes, keeps me rolling. He is senior at Butler High School who is very involved in his school-which keeps my husband and I very busy. He was on the Football team, Archery, National Honor Society, Beta Club and ROTC.
3. Have you always been in this industry? If not, what brought you where you are today?
I’m 5 years new to the insurance industry but not to the accounting world. I’ve been in accounting for 26 years. When my boss Mike Morgan left to come join Schwartz—I thought it sounded like refreshing opportunity.
4. What’s one thing you love about what you do for a living?
I love routine. Which accounting is just that. It starts at the beginning of the month and “hopefully” balances at the end of the month.
5. Tell us a little bit about what you do for fun.
My family and I are lake lovers! We try to go to the lake every weekend possible- even in the winter.
6. If you could do one thing for a living that had nothing to do with your current job, what would it be?
My real love is decorating. I would love to be an interior decorator and work with Ty Pennington on Extreme Home Makeover.
