Laura Sherman of Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners in Tampa has been elected President of the 2016 Safeco Insurance Southeast Advisory Council.

The Advisory Council program, introduced by Safeco more than 10 years ago, has helped the company improve its relationships with both customers and the company’s independent agent partners. The honest, open dialogue facilitates solutions that enhance the overall customer and agent experience.

Regional Advisory Council participants serve three-year terms, with about one-third of the membership rotating annually. Officers hold their positions for one year.

The Southeast President role also provides Laura with a seat on Safeco’s National Advisory Council, which is comprised of the elected officers of eight regional councils. In total, approximately 140 agents participate in the council process each year.

And the results are significant.

“The advisory councils provide value for everyone – customers, agents and Safeco,” said Laura Sherman, who has been with Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners for 10 years. “The process helps agents work more closely with Safeco, and allows us all to provide better customer experiences. It’s an honor to serve as President.”
