Morton to Serve Brokers in Maryland and Delaware
Morton has partnered with many top brokers in the Mid-Atlantic region over the past 25 years to help them satisfy the unique employee benefit needs of their clients and assist them in growing their businesses. He is an employee benefits expert, thought leader and multi-year top producer in the sale of dental, vision, life and disability products.
Morton lives in Ellicott City, Md., and will cover Maryland and Delaware. He is married with two children and enjoys an active lifestyle, including golfing and a variety of other outdoor activities. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in business and finance from Frostburg State University.
Morton explains, “Renaissance has a very exciting entrepreneurial spirit, along with a special focus on delivering outstanding ancillary benefit products and personalized service to small- to mid-sized companies that aligns perfectly with my values and goals. The company’s strong culture, nimble nature and dedication to customer service are foundational to the success of an employee benefits carrier.”
Olsen to Cover Virginia and West Virginia
Specializing in dental, vision, life and disability products, Olsen has developed strong relationships with broker and consulting partners in the region and has enjoyed a successful career in the insurance industry. His background includes many years as a sales executive and his first job in the industry was as an underwriter.
Olsen earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College. He is actively involved with both the Baltimore Association of Health Underwriters and the Greater Washington Association of Health Underwriters. He lives in Fairfax, Va., and will primarily serve brokers in Virginia and West Virginia. He enjoys golfing, traveling and spending time with his wife and children.
“Over the years I’ve developed trusted relationships with many brokers and producers in the market,” says Olsen. “Renaissance is dedicated to growth through smaller-sized groups, and I am excited about the opportunity to help increase the presence of this less well-known brand in this market.”
In addition to its expansion in the Mid-Atlantic region, Renaissance is also enlarging its group sales team in Florida with two new sales executives in that market.
