January: Michael Garity joins as VP of Marketing

After 25+ years in financial media, Mike decided to make the leap into the family business and join brother Brian here at GarityAdvantage.   Mike brings a wealth of marketing and business leadership experience to the team and has spent the bulk of 2018 working to expand the level of service, training and marketing support we provide to our brokerage community.  Much more to come in 2019.

Medicare Veteran, Bob Mager, joined the team in August

We welcomed Bob Mager of Cumming, GA as Director of Sales for the Southeast in charge of expanding Garity’s unique hands-on agent service model to independent insurance agents focused on Medicare and the Senior Market in Georgia and throughout the region. Bob said, “Joining the Garity team is an exciting opportunity for me. I love what I do, and believe that we have the resources to make an impact with agents, providing them with the type of support they truly deserve.”
This important team expansion, along with last year’s addition of Mike Harris of Alpharetta, GA as Vice President of National Sales, solidifies GarityAdvantage’s commitment to brokers in Georgia and the Southeast.
