First Financial Security, Inc. is pleased to announce that Andy Cowan has joined us as Director of Sales. Andy has worked for years with our agents as the Training Coordinator for Columbus Life and we are thrilled to see his expertise added to our team.
Andy began his career in banking and switched to life insurance once he realized the impact a life insurance policy can have on a family.
“When I was managing a bank fresh out of Ohio State, a young mother came in with two children. She was distraught as she told me her husband had died the day before. Looking at their finances, it was clear they were in a tough spot. I, unwisely I now realize, asked about life insurance. He had a $10,000 policy through work but that was barely enough for the funeral. As she left, I let her know she could reach out if I could help her and she told me frankly that it was too late. Right then I realized I wanted to be in the business of preventing that situation for as many American families as possible.”
Andy has spent more than 15 years in the financial services industry. He brings a depth of knowledge and expertise on our products and services that is crucial to expanding FFS training.
President Vince Rokose said, “Andy will be a tremendous asset to our team. He will focus on increasing sales results by improving our agents’ product knowledge and selling skills. His successful sales experience and ability to teach insurance concepts at all levels combined with his established relationships with our agents across the country will enable him to have an immediate impact on our sales results.”
Andy’s enthusiasm for insurance and talent for effective training will be a great addition to the FFS headquarters team.
