Meet Andrew Mendoza, a Client Manager in the Property + Casualty division in our San Diego office. As Client Manager, Andrew serves as the day-to-day contact for his clients - answering their questions, providing them with certificates of insurance, and taking care anything else they may need.
“I was initially attracted to the insurance industry due to the fact that several of my family members were involved in insurance. Marsh & McLennan Agency has a great reputation; I heard a lot of positive things about the work environment and the opportunities for professional growth. When I learned that MMA offers classes to obtain insurance designations, I was excited that they encourage their employees to continue to expand their industry knowledge.”
Achieving Career Goals
“Since joining MMA, I have taken numerous professional development courses, obtained designations, and am now working toward my CPCU designation. Our Organizational Learning team helped me create a Personal Excellence Plan (PEP) to help me reach my goals and has been supporting me throughout the process to ensure my success.”
“The thing I enjoy the most about my role is working with my colleagues. I am surrounded by intelligent and hardworking individuals from whom I learn so much on a daily basis. The Client Executives consistently share their experience and insurance knowledge, and I always feel comfortable going to them if I have any questions.”
Advice for Career Seekers
Any young person looking to begin a career can only hope that a company provides them with as many tools and opportunities as MMA does. The work environment is inviting, there are many opportunities for professional growth, and there are countless events, committees, and activities to participate in, including community service events.
Andrew loves to stay active, especially when it involves helping the San Diego community. In 2013, Andrew participated on a triathlon team for the Challenged Athletes Foundation and he also enjoys volunteering at Miracle League softball events. During his own time, you can usually find him either on the golf course or hiking with his wife Joy, and their two dogs, Zoey and Milo.
Andrew is also quite the jokester. “I love pranks and practical jokes. I once rigged a plastic spider so that it descended from the ceiling whenever the front door was opened, scaring the living daylights out of my wife.” Andrew also owns over 40 pairs of crazy socks he sports around the office.
