When Bernie was looking to make a career move, several colleagues referred him to Assurety.
“I knew the name Assurety but didn’t know the players or what they did. I talked to peers and people I consider mentors, and they recommended Assurety. They said the management team was well-respected and well-known in the industry,” he said.
Bernie came to Assurety with more than 20 years’ corporate experience but was unsure about how he would adapt to a position at a consulting firm.
“I was a little nervous to try a new role. But I found it was an easy fit “Adapting to my new role was easy because they give you the tools to do what you do best, he said.”
Once at Assurety, Bernie said the team atmosphere was a pleasant change from the typical corporate culture.
“We all have opinions and come from different backgrounds. Everyone is heard, and every thought is considered. It’s refreshing. Coming from the corporate world, it’s top down. But here it’s a collaborative environment,” he said.
Over the last two years at Assurety, Bernie has become an important asset to his team. His knowledge continues to expand, and he has the freedom to continue to grow in his role.
“I’m a little older and have more experience than most folks. I’ve been at larger companies and smaller ones. At Assurety there’s room for growth — both personal and professional — and the company encourages that. They encourage learning and making yourself a better person,” he said.
