BC insurance professional recognized as an elite broker

J.T. Insurance Services’ Sheri Clay has been included in the annual Elite Brokers report released by Insurance Business Canada

Online PR News – 23-June-2020 – Toronto, ON – J.T. Insurance Services’ Sheri Clay has been included in the annual Elite Brokers report released by Insurance Business Canada (IBC) magazine. The prestigious list recognizes the 25 Canadian brokers who have overcome multiple obstacles to achieve remarkable success over the past year.

Prior to getting her start in insurance, Clay worked in the cruise industry, “which is a fun, sexy business,” she says. “I did not feel insurance would be remotely similar.” After she had her first child, Clay wanted to go back to work but was looking for a better work-life balance. Her husband owns J.T. Insurance Services, and together they decided she should give working at the office a shot. “It took some adjustments, but I found my niche and have never looked back,” Clay says. “I love working with my clients and take pride in knowing they will be protected if and when the time arises.”

Now an integral part of the team at J.T. Insurance, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Clay uses her knowledge and communication skills to tackle issues head on and find a creative way to make things work for her clients. Her achievements have been recognized on an international scale; she was one of only two Canadians selected for the CAPI designation at Wharton.

“Despite tough economic conditions that restricted many – if not all – markets in 2019, brokers all over the country rose to the challenge,” says the Insurance Business team. “Of the dozens of brokers who excelled over the last 12 months, none shone quite as brightly as the 25 professionals featured on this list. This year’s Elite Brokers range from innovative newcomers to insurance veterans with decades of experience, but all earned their spot by posting impressive numbers in new business commissions or total premium volume – or both – in the last 12 months. While 16% of this year’s Elite Brokers have 20 or more years of industry experience, nearly as many (12%) have been in the business for five years or less – proving that when it comes to succeeding in a tricky economy, tenacity and innovation carry as much weight as a decades-long resume.”
