Every month, Schwartz Insurance Group selects a 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 serving our customers. This month, Charlie Stoddard has "lived" our core value of "Consider it Done." Here's his story:
Who do you trust with your life … insurance? It’s certainly an important issue – but with HIPAA and healthcare consolidation, the process now is often difficult. Having a worthy advocate is critical.
When client Mike Morgan began working with us to update a life policy, he quickly realized the process could be a bear … but, he also discovered the value of service and communication. In short, it was peace of mind.
Charlie Stoddard kept Mike in the loop and feeling secure, handling the situation like a pro. Mike could just Consider it Done!
Here, in his own words, is a little more information about Charlie:
