PROVIDENCE, R.I. (PRWEB) March 30, 2018
DeCotis Specialty Insurance, an industry leader in surplus and excess insurance, announced the addition of new team members to their Braintree, MA and Providence offices. Joining their Braintree office are Michael Yanikoski, Ryan Smith, and Keisha Williams. In addition, five new members have joined the Providence office: Lisa do Rego, Brendan Kenahan, Ashley Adams, Melissa Pruett, and Jennifer Dubois. The newest members of DeCotis are joining the agency at an opportune time as the agency continues to eye growth in the Northeast and beyond.
“We may sell insurance products every day, but we know that at our core, we are a service business. In order to properly serve our agent customers, we need to continually strengthen our “bench” to make sure that front line producers and underwriters have support that allows them to respond to business coming in. We are thrilled that we have so many qualified and dedicated people joining our team—everyone is excited about the extra bandwidth and we’re looking to drive past our growth goals this year. With our current pool of talent, anything is possible. The proof will be in our customers’ feedback as we move forward through 2018, but the initial response has been great. We’re really looking forward to the coming year.” – Tom DeCotis
The Braintree office will gain considerable experience from Ryan Smith and Michael Yanikoski, both joining as Brokerage Account Managers, and Keisha Williams who joins the agency as a new Customer Service Representative. And the main Providence office will be further strengthened by the skill sets of Ashley Adams (Marketing Associate), Jennifer Dubois (Underwriting Assistant), Brendan Kenahan (Broker), Melissa Pruett (Small Business Unit Customer Service Representative), and Lisa do Rego (Administrative Assistant).
The addition of these eight team members will further cement DeCotis’ reputation as an experienced resource for retail agents who are seeking skilled and knowledgeable advice in order to place their clients’ policies. And guided by forward-thinking leadership, the continued growth of the agency ensures that DeCotis is poised to meet this need.
