For Cory Friedman, going into insurance was about helping others see the light. Starting out as an intern at GCG, he saw how the company’s advisors helped simplify the complexities of insurance for their clients.
“I knew right away that I wanted to be that person, educating and supporting my clients’ employees,” he says. And it’s not just any clients, but specifically his millennial peers, who he realized needed to see insurance in a different light.
Beyond hitting numbers and receiving the company’s Circle of Excellence Award, what Friedman finds motivating is getting to work with big companies with multiple offices/sites, as this challenges his team’s creativity and technological savvy. He advises young professionals who wish to enter the industry to be patient and persistent and, as he did, find a partner or mentor who will help them grow their skills and business.
