TROXELL has announced the addition of Steve French to the sales team. French has been in the automotive and insurance industry for more than 20 years.
After French’s previous employer made the decision to cease writing a majority of their business in Illinois, TROXELL took the opportunity to bring him in as part of the sales and automotive division.
“With over 10 years of cultivating an automotive dealership centric insurance book across Illinois, French brings knowledge of products, services and specialty care that dealerships require to ensure their business and its future is protected and secure,” said John Eck, Jr., senior vice president at TROXELL.
Dealership insurance is a very specialized area of the insurance industry and one that TROXELL has put time and effort into enhancing. Their efforts include building stronger relationships with insurance companies who focus on the specific risks of the industry, more internal education and focused marketing efforts. The automotive division at TROXELL consists of a team who specifically targets dealership and other automotive retail businesses.
“French was a logical choice to establish a meaningful relationship with after the upset caused by the exit of Zurich in Illinois,” said Eck. “His history of building trust through consultative relationships with clients is exactly the type of individual we want on our team.”
French said he is excited for the opportunity to be part of the TROXELL team. “TROXELL’s automotive division enables me to better serve my customers by providing industry specific products and services designed to meet their individual needs,” said French.
