The 30-year-old insurance and risk management agency’s entire commercial lines department is now certified to handle workers compensation clientele
(St. Louis, Mo., July 6, 2021) POWERS Insurance & Risk Management, one of the largest family-owned and operated independent insurance agencies in the bi-state region, recently announced six of its commercial service team members earned their Professional Workers Compensation Account Manager (PWCAM) certifications.
Commercial Lines Manager Lorraine Troyer plus Commercial Account Managers Jessica Gebert, Spring Holmes, Linsey Morris, Shari Smith, and Rachel Winkelmann earned this designation and are now certified to handle workers’ compensation clientele. This announcement means POWERS’ entire 12-person commercial lines department is fully certified.
The PWCAM designation provides comprehensive training to insurance agents to help them develop and implement strategies to best serve their clients with workers’ compensation plans. The in-depth training increases insurance agents’ technical knowledge to identify risks and threats to business operations.
