Farmington Hills, MI – Amerisure recently announced that two of its employees have been selected as 2023 emerging leaders by the American Property Casualty Insurance Association™ (APCIA), AM Best®, and the Insurance Careers Movement.
Amerisure’s Blaze Rodriguez, business development manager, and Colette Turner, director of Workers’ Compensation field claims, have been awarded the prestigious honor, which is designed to recognize outstanding rising talents in the insurance industry.
With their selection as emerging leaders, the employees are invited to attend the Emerging Leaders conference in Charleston, South Carolina, in February of 2023.
“Amerisure is proud to have Blaze and Colette represent our organization in the 2023 class of emerging leaders,” said Erin Buddie, Amerisure’s vice president of human resources. “These individuals regularly surpass our expectations through notable performance outcomes within their job responsibilities, and lead by example in their display of Amerisure’s values and demonstrated passion for providing superior service.”
Those selected for the recognition represent a wide range of job functions. Nominees must have more than eight years of experience and show they are making a positive impact on their companies and the industry.
