Along with our goal to be the leader in middle market property & casualty insurance we also want to be active and support a handful of Charities/foundations that are important to us. While being involved monetarily is a piece of the puzzle we feel the other side of the coin is the most crucial and that is time and awareness.
Over the past year we have had a personal involvement with Autism and wanted to partner with an organization that we could grow with. Through our efforts and involvement we came across a very influential and important person in this arena, his name is Anthony Ianni. Anthony is the first known division I athlete diagnosed with Autism. Anthony played basketball for Tom Izzo at Michigan State University and upon graduating he started his career in the public speaking industry. In 2014 Anthony was named one of the most influential people by Autism Speaks and continues his journey across the country through his foundation, The Relentless Tour (relentlesstour.com)
After starting our relationship with Anthony and the Relentless Tour we thought it would be a great opportunity for Anthony to speak at our customer event this past June. Throughout the year we try to host events for our customers and networking partners that really does not center on our everyday lives in insurance, but an event that can bring people together to network and hear a great story. Anthony was the keynote speaker and did an outstanding job in front of a room filled with over 60 business professionals.
We are fortunate to work with so many talented business owners, insurance carriers, employees, and networking partners. Anthony and The Relentless Tour is now part of that group and we couldn’t be more excited about the future!
