The SAN Group has promoted Christine Kopec
The Satellite Agency Network Group, Inc. (“SAN”) has promoted Christine Kopec to Agency Development Field Specialist for Eastern Massachusetts. Ms. Kopec, who has been with the SAN’s AccessPlus team since 2007, will join the recently appointed Regional Vice President for Massachusetts Cindy Prouty in working with member agents in the Commonwealth.
“I am very excited to begin this new role,” stated Kopec. “Over the years, I have built strong business relationships with many of the member agents in Massachusetts, and I am looking forward to working with them in this new capacity.”
Prior to her promotion, she was most recently the SAN’s AccessPlus Team Lead – Commercial Lines. In her new position, Ms. Kopec will consult with Eastern Massachusetts SAN member agencies on a number of issues, including start-up challenges and solutions, optimizing the SIAA Business Insurance Advantage program which focuses on commercial lines, as well as overall premium growth. Her responsibilities will also include creating agent access to third-party providers, connecting agent members with the appropriate marketing and management support tools, and offering on-going support to SAN members in Eastern Massachusetts.
According to SAN, Ms. Kopac was a natural choice based on her extensive experience in mentoring member agencies with submission preparation, identifying target markets, increasing lines of business, training and education, and most notably, to assist with growth in commercial lines. She is also proficient in the use of a number of agency management systems and other technology platforms.
“Bringing Christine on-board as part of SAN Group’s Agency Development team is a result of the success we are seeing with our Agency Development Field Specialist positions, and the proven performance of Christine herself,” said SAN’s VP of Agency Operations and Services, Jeff Holmes. “She will be a great resource to the member agents and to Cindy Prouty.”
A Massachusetts resident, Ms. Kopec also holds both the Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR) and Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC) designations.
