Employee Testimonials.

We would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for the relationships we have with employees, broker clients and carrier partners. Our environment fosters relationships and is just one of the many things that sets us apart from our competition. Let’s see what a few of our team members have to say about the Distinguished Programs experience.

Vice President, Program Analytics

"What’s great about Distinguished Programs is that we never stand still. We are always trying to figure out new ways to do things and stay ahead of the curve. We are a company that is forward thinking and keeps things fresh. Often times, the insurance field gets a bad rap for being a stale and boring industry to work in. At Distinguished, nothing could be further from the truth."

"At Distinguished Programs, we are relentless in our pursuit to be the best. We are a company that will be there through thick and thin. The innovative and creative thinking throughout Distinguished helps to provide state of the art tactics used company wide. Distinguished does a great job in educating and instilling this knowledge in all of their employees. This in return allows all of our teams to be confident in providing the best, fastest and most knowledgeable service possible."

President Express Division

"In the Distinguished Programs we are always looking for new ways of approaching the business of writing insurance. Let’s make it more efficient for our customers. Let’s only ask questions that are used to make decisions. Let’s figure out what really impacts lossess. Open up the broker portal so our brokers can go straight through to the finish line. The whole team is engaged in this continuous improvement. This quest to do it better comes out of a real desire to build a business that does it better. Everyone here shares that goal."

Whether with colleagues, supervisors or even senior management, employees are encouraged to voice their opinions and suggest ideas for new programs and problem solving. And this doesn’t stop internally. We love receiving constructive criticism from our brokers and we strive to make clients as happy as we are."

Accounts Receivable Coordinator

"Distinguished Programs is a truly innovative company that is always looking for ways to enhance employees growth and improve department performance. When I joined the company’s Accounting Department in 2010, I had no prior insurance experience. One of the great things about working here is the company really gives you the opportunity to learn. With the help of excellent internal training programs and my friendly and knowledgeable colleagues I’ve built the skills I need to do my job effectively."

Through the Distinguished brand, we strive to develop and grow our partnerships into valuable relationships that are rarely seen in today’s marketplace."
