While the insurance industry continues to evolve, relationships matter more than ever. And a familiar face doesn’t hurt.
That’s why we’re excited to name Meghan Pizzolato as our Texas state vice president.
While Meghan serves as our first cornerstone team member in Texas, she’s not new to the industry. Most recently, she served as a personal insurance sales executive with Kemper in the Dallas area. There, she managed relationships with nearly 300 agencies in her respective geography, driving new business production and profitability. She has consistently increased production since 2011 through properly identifying opportunities in existing agencies and leveraging those relationships, by adjusting sales strategy with each product revision, and regularly prospecting for new agencies to appoint. She received the Kemper 2021 National Hustle Award.
Keystone, one of the top agency partnerships in the United States, is built on a community of some of the best independent insurance agencies. Meghan will help evaluate and build new agency relationships in Texas and helping them build business plans with our core carriers.
“Through Meghan’s extensive knowledge of the finest independent agencies in Texas, we have the utmost confidence she’ll bring together a core group of successful agencies that are looking to accelerate their growth opportunities with us,” explained Brian Brusoski, our executive vice president of field operations. “We’re excited she chose Keystone and welcome her to the family!”
“We are thrilled to have Meghan on our team and look forward to her expanding Keystone’s footprint in TX,” added Mid-South Regional Vice President, Michelle Bicknell. “Meghan brings a comprehensive perspective of the state that will help us identify growing agencies who will leverage all the tools Keystone offers to add value.”
“In our ever-changing industry, I believe that agency networks are the future, and Keystone does it better than anyone else,” Meghan noted. “Offering best-in-class services and support to its agents, Keystone sets the bar by banding together the best agencies in the country and helping them reach even greater levels of success. While the independent channel provides freedom and unique opportunities for its agents, the market is constantly challenging us all. At Keystone, we believe that ‘independence works better together,’ and I couldn’t be more excited to bring this very special organization to the Texas market.”
