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, Markina Thompson has "lived" our core value of "Consider it Done." Here's her story:
Timing is everything and, occasionally, you can find yourself in a bad place at the right time. Like when you’re the last one standing during summer vacation season.
That’s the moment when a key client needs to bind coverage – with a complicated scenario. But, that’s what we always do well: we solve problems in our client’s world when they need to be solved. Of course, when it rains, it pours … later that same afternoon three more situations popped up before 5 p.m.!
No problem. Markina Thompson was tasked with taking care of every situation - and she did it well! Consider it Done!
Here, in her own words, is a little more information about Markina:
How long have you been working in the insurance industry?
I have been an account manager in commercial insurance for sixteen years now - and about thirteen months ago I joined the wonderful team here at Schwartz Insurance Group.
What's the best thing about working as a Business Client Advisor?
The best part of my career is helping people. I find it very gratifying.
Do you like sports?
I LOVE sports! I play on a women's flag football team, and I also enjoy roller skating.
A question that must be asked: UK or UofL?
Uof L, of course. (What is UK?)
What's your favorite thing about living in Louisville?
The small town yet big city feel I can enjoy without having to live in a big city.
If you could vacation anywhere in the world (money being no object), where would that be and why?
Ireland, because of its beautiful scenery and historic sights.
What brings you true happiness?
My kids. I am the mother of three girls and one boy.
