Insurance Agent, Educator Boggs Joins MyNewMarkets.com
May 5, 2008
MyNewMarkets.com, the Web site with a searchable online directory that brings together agents seeking property/casualty insurance markets with the market providers, is expanding its content to include in-depth analysis and reporting on technical and coverage issues.
Christopher J. Boggs has been named MyNewMarkets.com associate editor and will spearhead the expansion of the MyNewMarkets.com content. Boggs will produce and edit articles and commentaries focusing on coverage issues, market trends, policy comparisons, risk evaluations and sales approaches agents and brokers can use to give them an edge on their competition and to educate their clients.
The articles and commentaries will complement the site's searchable directory of more than 25,000 insurance providers and programs for risks ranging from accountants and blasting contractors to hotels and truckers.
Boggs brings nearly 18 years of experience in insurance and risk management, a background that includes teaching pre-licensing and insurance continuing education courses and writing on coverage and insurance-related issues. He is a veteran insurance professional, having worked as an account executive for several property/casualty agencies and as a senior risk analyst for one of the largest risk consulting firms in the Southeast. He is a former associate director of education for the Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina, Inc. and a former loss control and claims specialist for the North Carolina Department of Insurance. International Risk Management Institute's (IRMI's) The Risk Report, The John Liner Review, RIMS' Risk Management magazine, and the American Public Power Association magazine have featured several of his articles. In addition to teaching others and writing about insurance and risk management, Boggs has himself earned a host of insurance designations, including CPCU, ARM, ALCM, LPCS, AAI and APA.
According to Mitch Dunford, chief executive officer of MyNewMarkets.com, the addition of Boggs greatly enhances the value of the Web site. "His analysis and insight will advance MyNewMarket.com's growing reputation as the industry's #1 marketplace for agents," said Dunford.
Boggs is thrilled with his new assignment. "I'm a little odd in that I absolutely love the technical issues in insurance and risk management. I enjoy delving into the details of policies, finding coverage gaps, comparing terms and conditions," says Boggs. "I'm truly excited about being able to do this while helping fellow agents and brokers solve their problems."
