RogersGray has announced that Jeff Cotto, Jeff Bastien, John Foley, John Turco and Ryan O’Connell have been named partners, effective Jan. 1, 2021, in the nationally recognized insurance agency.
“The five individuals we have welcomed to the Partnership Group at RogersGray have all contributed greatly to the agency, culture and clients and we are thrilled to be expanding this team of leaders,” said Michael Robinson, chairman of RogersGray. “Their industry expertise represents all aspects of our business – employee benefits, business and personal insurance – and all have demonstrated an exceptionally strong commitment to our clients.”
Bastien, Foley and Turco are consultants in the Employee Benefits Division. All three concentrate in working with employers on creative solutions for employee health benefits including self-funding and traditional plans. Turco joined the agency in 2008, Foley in 2011 and Bastien in 2018.
O’Connell joined the agency in 2002, specializes in coastal risk exposures for homeowners and is the first personal insurance consultant to achieve partner.
Business Insurance Consultant Jeff Cotto began at RogersGray in 2007 and focuses on contractors, condominiums and nonprofits.
“Speaking on behalf of the group, we are honored to have achieved partnership with RogersGray,” said Turco. “We all center our practice on creative insurance solutions for clients and living by the core values of the agency and this achievement is a direct result of that.”
Career path planning at RogersGray is a high priority. The internal RogersGray University team focuses on the education of the staff, including the track to partner for senior leaders in the organization, and ensuring clients have the most knowledgeable specialists in the business.
“For many people in our industry, the pathway to partnership is a career objective,” said David Robinson, president and CEO of RogersGray. “Most agencies do not have the size or scale to be able to offer this course, but at RogersGray, our goal is professional growth in all forms – and that includes the opportunity to achieve partnership status.”
