Ohio Native Comes to California
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Chris Wilson followed his high school sweetheart to West Virginia University and finally out to California, where they married in 2010. During college summers, he interned at a family friends’ insurance brokerage in Ohio in the employee benefits department doing marketing and account management, which is when he realized he wanted to get into insurance sales.
After moving out to California a couple years after graduation and working at two different brokerages, Chris was referred to Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA) through recommendations from the carriers he did business with. Driven by the reputation of MMA and his desire to dive deeper into sales, Chris used LinkedIn connections to get in touch with one of MMA's principals. Chris compares MMA to his company in Ohio, with its great leadership and mentors, but thinks MMA “completely surpasses that with its culture, leadership and work environment”.
