August 1st, 2016 Sam Corey III was named The Brokerage Resource's new Chief Marketing & Operating Officer. Passing the reins to this role was TBR's founder and CEO, Sam Corey, Jr.
“This signifies a step back from the day-to-day operations for my dad so he can focus on life outside the agency. I still need my father around to tap into his exhaustive knowledge of the industry, but will now take on many of the responsibilities he once undertook.”
Sam started his insurance career by working summers at Provident Indemnity Life Insurance Company in Norristown, PA. His duties included duck feeding, leaf raking, supply fulfillment and other odds and ends.
Full-time work came later including stints at Audio, AIRCO and then he became Publisher for 'Electronics for Beginners', a technical journal. He then moved on to co-own and publish 'Insurance News of North Carolina'.
Most recently he joined The Brokerage Resource in 1995 as Vice President Sales where he specialized in Group Ancillary and Senior Healthcare.
Sam will now be at the helm of The Brokerage Resource leading and growing the firm as it enters its 25th year in business.
