In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, PIA wants to recognize Edgar A. Mercado MBA, CIC, CISR, Principal/Founder of Market & Maclay Insurance and Secretary of the PIA of Puerto Rico/Caribbean.
We asked Edgar what he loves most about working in insurance. Here is what he told us:
“The insurance industry has given me the opportunity to build long lasting client/friend relationships based on trust. I am devoted to serve and share my insurance knowledge, experience, and insights in order to make a comprehensive and effective risk management and protect my clients assets and financial stability. My purpose is to meet my clients needs, gain their trust, and serve in the process, be there!”
A little more on Edgar’s heritage:
“My dad comes from the north-center countryside, my mother from a small town south coast of the island, I was raised in San Juan. From very young I was exposed to different environments, I was able to enjoy people, to embrace the uniqueness and respect diversity. Driven by an educational background in Marketing Management & International Business – MBA, I worked the corporate ladder for 18 years having the opportunity to lead sales teams in PR and California, USA. Today I run my Insurance Broker Firm, Market & Maclay LLC, develop new agents, and share my insurance knowledge with agents, prospects, and colleagues.”
