SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) - Agents and Brokers from across the 21 territories in which NAGICO Insurances operates were awarded during a Regional Conference & Award Ceremony held in Trinidad & Tobago last Saturday.
The two-day event, which was held at the Hilton Conference Center in Trinidad, saw over 200 guests in attendance and kicked off with a Conference on the Friday morning. NAGICO’s success over the years is largely attributable to its intermediary network so each year it dedicates time to recognize and show appreciation to these persons and also to share in a more intimate setting information about the Group status and its plans. Due to the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria, NAGICO was unable to host its annual event in 2018 as it was primarily focused on the handling of the voluminous claims received. The invited guests were given the the opportunity to engage one on one with and hear directly from the Management and Board of the Group.
NAGICO Insurances’ new Group CEO, Mr. Detlef Hooyboer, gave his first in person address to the Agents and Brokers, since assuming the role in January 2019, and took the opportunity to thank them for their support over the years. He also shared his vision for the future and invited the audience to share their feedback and ideas with him.
On Saturday, against a backdrop of elegance and sophistication, the Group’s top performers were publicly recognized and presented with awards. There were the many regional awardees, but specific to St. Maarten was Sun Insurance Brokers N.V who earned the Intermediary of the Year title. Other top performing local agents and brokers that were awarded at the event were North Eastern Insurances, Henderson International, Oriental Insurances (OCI), Henderson Insurance, Rai Insurances and People’s Insurance Agency.
“We would like to again congratulate all of our Agents & Brokers for their tremendous support and tireless efforts over the years. We know that the insurance market has become even more challenging and competitive since the two major hurricanes in 2017, but you have weathered the storms with us,” Mr. Hooyboer said. “It is for these reasons and more that we wish to express our profound appreciation and gratitude to you and celebrate your accomplishments.”
