Correll Insurance Group CEO Jon Jensen was installed as the new chairman of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (Big "I") on Saturday, September 14. Jensen was installed and assumed his duties as chairman at the organization's fall leadership conference in Savannah, GA.
A longtime member of the Big “I” and proponent of the independent agency system, Jensen is a former recipient of the Independent Insurance Agents of South Carolina Young Agent and Agent of the Year awards. Jensen previously chaired the national association’s Government Affairs Committee and InsurPac Committee. And earlier this year, Jensen was sworn in as chairman of the World Federation of Insurance Intermediaries in Rome, the first time a Big “I” representative has been selected for that role.
In an interview with Independent Agent magazine, Jensen said "continuing (the organization's) work in areas like membership, diversity and market share is the biggest goal I could try to accomplish, because those are not initiatives you can ever forget about or claim to be done.
Driving workforce and development is another priority. If we lose focus there, we’ll have greater problems than we thought."
