Insurance Office of America Broker Matt Engle Recognized as a 2021 Nonprofit Power Broker
Matt Engle, Commercial Insurance Broker, Insurance Office of America
“I always put myself in the shoes of the client,” Matt Engle wrote in his Power Broker application. “What kind of service would I need in exchange for the protection of my most valuable assets?”
To answer that question, he’s sought out firsthand experience, volunteering and serving on boards for nonprofits in his community. At the same time, Engle stays up-to-date with insurance carriers by attending meetings on their nonprofit insurance programs.
In the past year, he leveraged one client’s renewal marketing efforts with multiple specialty insurance programs to obtain the best pricing option, saving thousands of dollars in the process; assisted another with needed accident medical coverage for volunteers; and helped a third put a cyber liability policy in place to protect against data loss and personal information exposures.
“I strategically position a nonprofit’s risk to insurance carriers as a safe risk to insure, due to the risk having important internal safety controls in place to minimize claims,” he wrote.
Clients praise Engle’s knowledge, responsiveness and offers to assist with additional resources wherever possible.
For those who lack knowledge of insurance, his ability to translate the subject matter to others has been extremely helpful. He manages to find solutions, saving one new client this year after a challenging renewal process within a week of its deadline.
His customers say they can call him “day or night and he jumps in right away with what needs to be done.”
