AVP Laura Van Vliet – CIP 2016 National Emerging Leader
Andrew Clark, President and CEO is pleased to congratulate AVP Laura Van Vliet on being recognized by the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) Society as the 2016 National Emerging Leader.
Since 2009, the CIP Society has celebrated property and casualty insurance professionals by awarding National Leadership Awards. Recognized by their peers for their significant contributions, each winner is making an impact in the property and casualty community.
As a newcomer to the industry, “Laura has emerged as a natural leader and mentor with noteworthy ‘integrity for the work she does, the company she works for, and the career she is thriving in,’ says her nominator.” 1
During Laura’s very first role in the industry, she was quick to demonstrate her initiative. When her brokerage was acquired, Laura stepped forward and volunteered to help ease the transition period by mentoring staff on procedures and policies. In her next role Laura “led a team of 5 in preparing and managing [a major] event, increasing attendance at the event by 100+ clients and prospects.” 3
“In working with Laura, I found her to be a very pro-active, self-disciplined, engaging young professional. She is highly committed to her insurance career and demonstrates passion in everything she does,” comments one of her references.” 4
