The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), a leader in non-cancellable individual disability insurance sales, recognized Matthew Finn, of Guardian Disability Insurance Brokerage, Rockville, MD, as their 2012 Disability Insurance Specialist (DIS) of the Year. The award was presented at the annual DIS Conference held in Boston, MA. The conference brings together DIS’s from across the country to review recent developments in the disability insurance market, as well as recognizing company leaders for the previous year.
The DIS of the Year program recognizes the one DIS who has demonstrated the highest level of success in unit growth for the previous year. This is determined using three key metrics: new annual premium, number of new producers (a producer that was contracted during the calendar year) in the unit writing at least one case, and the number of producers in the unit writing more than 3 cases. Points are accumulated in each category and the award is given to the DIS with the highest number of points.
