As an experienced agent, we understand that you don’t need hand-holding. However, support when you need it and in-depth resources curated just for you are part of what we do here at New Horizons.
We mean it when we say we’re just a phone call away. The majority of our agents here at New Horizons are experienced with years, and even decades, of insurance sales under their belts. We’d love to show you how we can help you grow and increase production by sharing what we’ve learned over the years.
John Hockaday, Principal and Co-Founder of New Horizons, started in the business in 1979. He and business partner Jeff Sams started out as sales agents, turned it into a local agency, and eventually created this National Marketing Organization we all know and love today.
John is incredibly relational and loves chatting with and helping agents. He shines above us all when it comes to underwriting. He knows what underwriters will and won’t take, and it saves agents a ton of heartache. He’ll help you place tough cases, which is often a sore spot for experienced agents.
Jeff Sams, CEO and Co-Founder of New Horizons, started selling insurance in 1981. He has watched the senior market landscape shift, from long-term care insurance being the pillar of our production to new solutions being introduced to the market, such as short-term care insurance.
Jeff can see the big picture and is an incredible asset for experienced agents needing advice and assistance. He works to secure top contracts and carriers for our family of producers and is always working for and advocating for our agents.
Kirk Sarff, Director of Life Insurance Sales, joined New Horizons in 2003 to establish a life insurance and annuities department. Each year, his department has grown substantially, thanks for the outstanding agents that have started offering life insurance and annuity products to their clients.
Kirk makes it incredibly easy to offer life products by scrubbing your application, submit your paperwork to the carrier, keeping you informed of your case status, and doing all the legwork needed to place your case. Kirk also keeps in close connection with his top producers and will assist you with your production goals in any way he can.
Steve Spinner, Director of Medicare Advantage Sales, is extremely passionate about the options newly available to seniors aging into Medicare. Whether it’s hosting live Q&A sessions to educate producers about the new MSA product or travelling to your town to co-host a seminar, Steve goes above and beyond every single day for his agents.
Steve focuses on outreach, agent support, marketing plans, and education to arm you with everything you need to successfully go to market with MA plans in your area.
“Using the skills I learned from this training program, I earned over $8,000 in commission before I even finished the course.”
