Become A Member SAN Group Creates Two New Management Positions Aug 9, 2013 – Hampton, NH: Satellite Agency Network Group, Inc. – the largest Alliance of Independent Property & Casualty Insurance Agencies in the Northeast – has created two new management positions within their Hampton headquarters, Chief Operating Officer and AccessPlus General Manager. SAN Group considered candidates from a variety of sources before choosing to promote their own Regional Vice President of Northern New England, Frank Waters, to COO. According to SAN Group President & CEO, Matt Masiello, “Frank’s strong ability to organize and prioritize, along with his interpersonal skills and deep knowledge of our business model, systems and procedures all led to this well-deserved promotion.” Prior to joining SAN, Frank worked at Liberty Mutual for five years as the Director of Hiring, Recruiting and Training. In that role, he established and maintained processes and procedures for hiring new sales and service representatives, developed a consistent training program, worked with other departments to establish cross-training, and provided the training for all new management in the personal lines division. SAN Group has also created the position of AccessPlus General Manager, recently filled by new addition Jeff Holmes. Jeff has 17 years of Personal and Commercial insurance sales management and marketing experience. Masiello said “In his prior positions with organizations such as Liberty Mutual and Pearl Insurance, he demonstrated proficiency in recruiting, training and coaching front line personnel to achieve established goals and standards. We will capitalize on his experience as he develops and manages our service team for AccessPlus, the system we’ve developed to provide our members with access to our top-rated carriers.” Frank and Jeff will primarily be based out of SAN Group’s Hampton office.
