Now the owner of the practice, Mike still works a full, active desk, serving the life insurance and annuity industries nationally. His success in the business is a direct result of building deep relationships with the top performers of the industry and knowing the “who’s who” of the insurance world.

This honor is awarded to only one current CSAM who has demonstrated industry leadership and success.

Outstanding representation. Mike Brown did a fantastic job and really made me feel like he was on top of the process. Excellent follow up. Wanted to make sure I was very happy with my new position and will continue the follow up as he has in the past. I will suggest his services to all I meet that would help out Mike as well!

External Annuity Wholesaler

Mike Brown did a great job for me. He understands my past and exactly what I was looking for in a new job. He stays on top of all the events in my industry, is very well connected, and prepared me for success. He is the only Account Executive in my personal and professional network. I will always appreciate his professionalism, efforts and hard work.

Mike is a tremendous business partner and one that I consider vital as we move forward filling open positions or growing our sales ranks.

Just wanted to thank you for putting me in touch with our new wholesaler. As you know, he is on his way to Boston right now for new hire training. How about that...one-for-one!! Thanks a lot. I look forward to working with you more in the future.

Divisional Sales Manager

Michael Brown [was] so far above and beyond what I expected in an agency that I have since given [him] many names of other candidates to work with. GREAT WORK Michael!
