By Shawna Bertalot, CIC, ACI, WisMed Assure President
If you’ve ever witnessed a changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery or in front of Big Ben, you know it’s a serious event and poignant image of respect and protection. We have had a changing of the guard at WisMed Assure this past year with four of our more than 25 year veteran agents retiring – that’s more than 100 collective years in the service of protecting physicians and health care organizations from economic and reputational harm. They all shared pride in their WisMed team and mission to serve those who care for our health and we thank for their work and dedication.
I am so pleased to introduce the highly experienced and dedicated new guard that has joined WisMed Assure.
Janet Marzsalek, Laura Weber and Jim Davis each bring more than 25 years of experience in medical professional liability underwriting, service and sales. I am confident that there is no team in Wisconsin with more expertise handling the liability and business insurance needs of physicians, clinics, hospitals and health care facilities.
Tom Strangstalien is leading Team Income Defense with a focus on individual income protection insurance including Disability, Life and Long-term Care insurance.
