Our April Manager Showcase is Will Spong, Senior Vice President, Sales. Will’s career in insurance began with an internship at a large insurance brokerage in his junior year of college. His mother, who is also in the business, encouraged him to get involved and, fortunately, it was the perfect fit for him. Will immediately loved insurance, with its fast-paced environment and ‘work hard, play hard’ mentality. As his insurance career has grown, he has held different roles in a few agencies along they way. Then about a year ago, he started at Lovitt & Touché.
Will mentions that “If I’m lucky enough, I will retire at Lovitt & Touché. I love the unique culture and that it’s very family oriented. I think what separates us from others in our business is our people. We have a very talented group of people from top to bottom. We have long tenured employees, that truly care about our customers. I couldn’t be happier to be here – it’s a fantastic place to come to work every day.”
One of the things he loves most about health insurance is that its ultimately based on helping people. He emphasizes that “We have a responsibility to the employees of the organizations we work with to help them understand and navigate the complicated product that is health insurance.”
His advice to newbies in the insurance industry? “Get a mentor – latch onto someone who you see as being successful and try to emulate what they’re doing. Join a company that you feel passionate about and comfortable with. What we do every day is not easy – you have to be a fairly disciplined individual. For those that are disciplined and willing to learn, they will be very successful.”
Thank you Will, for your energy, passion and drive. We’re glad you’re part of the L&T team!
