Oct 14, 2019Western Growers Insurance has new senior account manager
In an effort to further bolster its demonstrated commitment to the agriculture industry, Western Growers Insurance Services (WGIS), a full service insurance agency, has added Marlo Reininger as senior account manager to its team. In this position, Reininger will work side by side with the WGIS sales team in developing relationships with food and agriculture customers, identifying risk and exposures and ensuring that WGIS customer assets are protected through the proper insurance contracts.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Marlo as her practice leader over ten years ago,” said Jeff Gullickson, senior vice president of Western Growers Insurance Services. “I was thoroughly impressed with her work ethic, knowledge of commercial lines, and commitment to building relationships with new and existing clients. Adding Marlo to our team seemed only fitting.”
With over 30 years of experience and as a certified insurance counselor, Reininger has committed her entire career to the insurance industry. Prior to joining WGIS, she worked for USI Insurance Services as both an account manager and senior account manager, where she helped grow and maintain a book of business for a senior producer, as well as other responsibilities.
“Although I have extensive experience with insurance, the agriculture industry is a new arena for me,” said Reininger. “Being a part of the Insurance Services team provides me with an opportunity to challenge myself in this space as well as new opportunities for growth.”
Reininger is a Santa Barbara native who currently resides in the foothills of La Crescenta, Calif., with her husband of 33 years. Reininger holds a Certified Insurance Counselor designation and is a two-time USI Summit Award winner and a California-licensed Property and Casualty Broker-Agent.
