Things change. So have we. We have now rebranded our entire business to stay fresh and to relate to our clients more even more than we did before. Because we have grown in our community since 1864, we know that we have to keep up with the times, while keeping up with you all as well. Thank you so all the clients who have been with us over the years. We have some loyal friends who have been insured with our company for over fifty years! Pretty fantastically crazy, isn’t it?
From our Wheelers family, to yours: let’s keep this community growing strong.
The woman, the agent, the legend. Today we are dedicating this blog post to a special woman in the insurance world, who has quite the positive reputation here in Maine. Cathy Morgan has been working in insurance for over 35 years.
Her journey first started in 1984 at David A. Klain Agency in Norway, where she was a receptionist. She then advanced to become a personal and commercial lines agent. Her next step was working at Maine Insurance Agency in Gray from 1994-2020 where she was promoted to office manager while still pursuing personal and commercial lines. Luckily for us, she is now here at Wheelers Insurance Agency in South Paris so she can have a shorter commute to work.
There is no question as to why Cathy has been such a successful agent, considering it has been thirty-five years and she is still the first person in the office early in the morning, and the last of us to leave at night. Her hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed. Her clients are so loyal to her that they come from all over to specifically have Cathy as their insurance agent. Cathy spreads her knowledge to all of those around her so not only can she be the best she can be, but so her teammates can succeed as well.
A piece of advice Cathy would like to share with all young agents that stuck with her through her career is to treat everyone like they are your own mother or family. Take good care of your clients. She also says that you truly need to be a sponge–take in all the information that you can! Don’t be intimidated to learn all aspects of Insurance whether it’s personal, commercial, life, health, claims, etc. And lastly, something Cathy heard years ago that has always grown with her is, “You do not have to know everything. You just need to know where to find the answers.”
In 2020 we grieved losses, we have missed out on little sensations such as a handshake or a hug, we have faced continuous anxieties and fears about the uncontrollable chaotic world spiraling around us, and we have now learned to be grateful for the everyday “normal” living… after the fact that our lives had already changed. And now, 2021 has started a new chapter for all of us.
Hello everyone, my name is Leanna. I was hired for marketing this company and my first day was on January 4th, 2021. As my first month at Wheelers Insurance Agency has come and gone, I have not only learned about what the insurance world itself entails but why an independent agency, like ours, is so much more genuine than the average insurance you find at random online.
My coworkers – who are also your insurance agents – that surround me are not just really good insurance professionals, but they’re also really good people. They are normal just like you and me. They have families and kids of their own, they have farms, they do fun things in the outdoors (I cannot relate–but hey, maybe they will rub off on me in that way too.) They aren’t here to try to burn a hole in your pocket; they sincerely care about protecting you, your family, your businesses, and so much more. They are here to help you. I have learned so much from them even by the way they talk to their clients. Most of their clients turn into friends. As someone who knew little about insurance coming into this, I can say it is extremely admirable the steps Wheelers Insurance Agency staff takes to take care of their clients and this community as a whole(by donations, sponsoring charities, volunteering, etc.). It makes me proud to be a Wheelers Insurance Agency employee.
In 2021, let’s lift each other up as a community. We are here for you. Whether you are a client of ours or not, we have had bones in our hometown since 1864 and we are not going anywhere!
Reach out to us, say hello to us, introduce yourself to us. We are not just an independent insurance company… We are your community, your neighbors, and your friends.
