If you have experience selling business insurance and you want to become more of a product niche specialist instead of a generalist, my client’s opportunity might just be a fit for you!
My client is an independent insurance agency located in Washington State. They are looking for a new Producer to join their growing Cannabis team. This is a W2 role with a base salary of $54,000 plus commission on new and renewal business. You should see $3000 per month in commissions based on meeting metrics.
Your goal is to continue to grow the book through a combination of networking with industry associations, gaining referrals from existing customers, and targeting new prospects across WA, OR, CA, NV, AZ, and CO. The business is placed primarily with wholesalers who will work with you to understand the nuances of individual state regulations with respect to the type of insurance that is required. You will be selling General and Product Liability policies both on the phone in the office, over the internet, and in person.
You will be targeting new customers in four market segments: growers, distributors, transporters, and retailers. Each segment has different insurance needs depending on the state they reside in, and some customers are new to the business and will be buying liability insurance for the first time. You will be their trusted advisor and will work with them to craft the appropriate risk strategy to meet their needs and will help guide them as they grow their businesses especially in newly legalized states. You will be supported by inside account managers who will handle renewals as well as paperwork for new accounts. Most of the leads will be in WA and OR state.
The client offers full benefits and lots of autonomy to allow you to continue to build the book. Expenses for industry associations, trade booths, etc are covered by the agency.
Candidates need to have a P & C license and at least a couple of years of agency level commercial producer experience selling commercial general liability with a track record of success. Soft skills include proficiency with computers, strong networking, and sales skills, and be able to work without a lot of direct supervision. Must be free to travel as needed to networking and other related industry events which can involve overnight travel on weekends. Experience with cannabis insurance is a huge plus, not required.
Remote candidates residing in WA are preferred. Other acceptable states you can live in include: OR, AZ, CA, CO, and NV. (No other states will be considered).
