Three new sponsors have joined the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers' Leadership Circle corporate sponsorship platform in the first quarter of 2014, the Washington-based producers' group announced this week.
They are Voya Financia, formerly ING U.S., ReSource Pro and Consortium Health Plans, Inc.
“We are committed to building relationships with organizations that bring value to our members and the industry, as evidenced by the strength of our newest partners,” said Council President and CEO Ken A. Crerar in a statement. “The council is a dynamic community of the top brokerages and industry partners worldwide, and we are growing stronger every day.”
“Our Leadership Circle partners are critical to the success of our overall membership,” said 2014 Council Chairman Johnny Pitts, who is also chief manager of Lipscomb & Pitts Insurance in Memphis, Tenn. “These companies and their Leadership Circle peers enhance our organization by providing valued industry perspective and generous support.”
The Leadership Circle is the council's annual corporate partnership program available to insurers, reinsurers and brokers, as well as select industry vendors, according to the council's website. It says that “the generous support" of the Leadership Circle sponsors "enhances our ability to provide insightful, relevant programming and resources to help our members grow."
