Last weekend, South Carolina's Jon Jensen, Correll Insurance Group, Spartanburg, was installed as 2019-20 Big “I" chairman at the Big “I" Fall Leadership Conference in Savannah, Georgia.
Besides his service on the Executive Committee, Jensen previously held a number of roles at the national level for the Big “I," including chairman of InsurPac and the Government Affairs Committee. He is a past recipient of a Big “I" Chairman's Award and the Sidney O. Smith Award, the highest governmental affairs award given by the association.
Jensen says a hallmark of his chairmanship will be promoting the perpetuation of the insurance industry. “Our industry is truly a noble career," he noted during his installation address. “We need to keep talking about how we bring more people into our industry, but we also need to start talking more and more about why they need and should want to be a part of it. We need to share all the rewards it has provided us and can provide them."
Bob Fee, Fee Insurance Group, Hutchinson, Kansas, was installed as Big “I" chairman-elect and John Costello, USI Insurance Services, Rochester, New York, became vice chair. In addition, the Big “I" Board elected Lou Moran, Inter-Agency Insurance Service, Knoxville, Tennessee, as the newest at-large member of the Executive Committee.
