Risk Management Advisor & Sales Manager, LR Windsor
Edwin specializes in commercial general liability, workers compensation, business auto, professional liability, commercial umbrella and many more. He went into the insurance business at the age of 19 and has always had a focus on helping educate clients about the importance of being properly insured. He first noticed a major gap in the Latino & Black communities from helping business owners who were not his clients translate paperwork they would get from their brokers. The lack of education in the community fired a passion that has not grown dim. With the partnership at LR Windsor Edwin has been putting focus towards spreading awareness and providing his people with the additional resources he now has access to. His focus on emotional intelligence has provided him with the tools to connect with his family, clients, co-works and himself.
Author of Undiscovered Voices: Unlocking the Potential of Women in Insurance
I've been in the Insurance industry for 21 years in various different roles. My career started as a customer service representative and progressed to a producer at an independent agency. I've also worked in an insurtech for about a year helping agencies hire Virtual assistants. The insurance industry gave me the most room for making a good living and growth but I've found there is a glass ceiling that is hard to break through for women. My goal is to help even out the playing field for all races and genders in the Insurance industry.
