The Interview

If you are looking for new competitive insurers in these uncertain markets, then see the podcast below.

This podcast features Mitch Dunford interviewing CICs of MarketScout, Richard Kerr and Chris Kerr (ARM and CISR, respectively).  Richard and Chris reveal that CICs, the most educated and talented professionals in the industry, are not only recognized by insurance carriers for their value but also for their demand by other companies.

The MarketScout CIC Select program is offered only to Dues-Paid CICs and is a specialty exchange created exclusively for The National Alliance’s Society of Certified Insurance Counselors (ClCs).
