With his focus on service coupled with solid communication skills in dealing with policy holders and claimants whom are often experiencing anxiety or personal tragedy arising from a loss, he explains, “It is important to understand that most claimants have little understanding of the nuances of insurance and our role is to guide them through the process with complete information.”
