Schaumburg, Ill. (June 26, 2017) – Kerri Quigley, a vice president at Assurance who focuses on the staffing industry, has been selected as one of Insurance Business America’s Elite Women winners. In a male dominated industry, the women featured on this list have honorably overcome obstacles and broken barriers to become some of the insurance industry’s leading professionals.

Kerri started her career at Assurance as an account manager back in 2008. She quickly moved her way up to an account executive role and then vice president. She specializes in crafting business insurance solutions for staffing companies nationwide, with a strong client presence in the Northeast. Kerri has proven her expertise in providing in-depth coverage including the reconstruction of staffing industry products with selected major insurers. She is one of the founding members of Launch Staffing, an annual conference geared towards enabling staffing firms to better grow their business.

Kerri is an asset to Assurance and her clients. She uses her extensive knowledge of the staffing and insurance industries to train Assurance’s internal staff and teach the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation courses. She has written many white papers, blog posts and presented webinars on topics such as liability exposures and workers’ compensation.

Kerri has many accomplishments, but she is most proud of having received Assurance’s 2016 ‘A’ Club Award, given to the top third of brokers at the company. Kerri won this accolade in her first year of production and is the only female broker to win in many years. 

“I’m incredibly honored to be among such strong women in the industry,” said Kerri Quigley. “I’ve persevered into this role and encourage other women in the industry to take advantage of all opportunities that arise.”

“Kerri demonstrates Assurance’s Best and Brightest characteristics,” said Diane Poljak, senior vice president and staffing practice leader at Assurance. “She’s an outstanding leader and mentor, and we couldn’t be more proud to see her name on the Elite Women list.”
