Flagstaff, AZ (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
Derek Kartchner has been promoted to Vice President of Business Development for the Flagstaff, AZ based International Insurance Group, Inc. (IIG).
International Insurance Group, Inc. is a wholesaler of Specialty Personal Lines insurance. IIG's specialties include Mexico Home and Auto Insurance, RV Insurance, Manufactured Home Insurance, and Vacant and Rental Dwelling Insurance.
Kartchner began his career at IIG as an intern in 2003. He has worked in customer service, product development, marketing, and for the last 5 years has been responsible for national accounts development. He holds an undergraduate degree from Northern Arizona University and a Masters degree in business administration from Florida State University. He also holds the Certified Insurance Counselor Designation.
In his new role, Kartchner will be responsible for working with International Insurance Group’s 3,000 agency partners to help them grow books of specialty personal lines business with IIG. IIG also also has joint marketing agreements with many of the largest Home and Auto Insurers, enabling these insurers to better serve their customers in the niches that these insurers do not focus on.
Derek said, “I am excited about this new opportunity. I have worked with our agency partners since starting my career at IIG nearly ten years ago, and I look forward to further helping our agency and insurer partners grow in these underserved niches. Many agencies and insurers overlook the opportunity to pick the low hanging fruit, retain more customers, and bolster their bottom-lines by offering our specialty products."
