Farmington Hills, Mich., June 16, 2022 — Amerisure is pleased to announce three employees have been selected as emerging leaders by the American Property Casualty Insurance Association™ (APCIA), AM Best®, and the Insurance Careers Movement.

Kalin Coon, business development manager; Anastasia Gale, director of corporate & regulatory counsel; and RaFeael Smith, claims unit manager, have been awarded the prestigious recognition designed to identify the best and brightest rising talents in the insurance industry. With their selection, the employees are invited to attend the Emerging Leaders conference in Denver, Colorado, this August.

“Amerisure is proud to have Kalin, Anastasia and RaFeael represent our organization in this year’s class of emerging leaders,” said Erin Buddie, Amerisure’s vice president of human resources. “These individuals frequently surpass expectations through performance outcomes and their consistent display of Amerisure’s values. They each make significant contributions to our mission and vision every day.”

Nominees for the emerging leader recognition require more than eight years of experience. Within a variety of roles, they are already making a positive impact within their companies and the industry.

Since the emerging leaders program began, Amerisure has made a strong showing. In 2020, two employees were selected — John Calloway, director of field underwriting, and LaDonna Murphy, claims unit manager. Amerisure’s vice president of field marketing & underwriting, Jessica Soufrine, was chosen for the 2018 inaugural class of emerging leaders.
