Hanson Benefits (HBI) welcomes Carrie Abraham as our account manager. As a licensed agent, Carrie comes to HBI with over 20 years of experience providing account and sales support in the benefits field. Her ability to provide great service is proven in her work and life philosophies: living by the Golden rule, being compassionate, staying positive and taking care of the details. Carrie will be the first contact for many clients, responding to enrollment and billing questions. She will also assist in quoting, renewal comparisons and enrollment tracking. Carrie looks forward to providing the Hanson Benefits “Hi-touch” service and says, “Benefits can be complicated, so no matter is too small to respond to. Clients should feel comfortable contacting our team for any question that comes up.”
Carrie met Chris Hanson over fifteen years ago when they worked together at a local benefits consulting practice. When the opportunity came up to join Hanson Benefits, Carrie reflected on the trusted advisor reputation Chris and her team have earned since growing the business from the ground up. She says, “I like working for a smaller organization. You can make a greater difference and feel valued. I feel at Hanson Benefits, I will be able to be in charge of the details while Chris and her team drive the business.”
When asked about what she enjoys most outside of work, Carrie enthusiastically says “shopping”. She creates an analogy of the benefits industry and her passion to shop. “I’m a bargain hunter, always finding opportunities to get the best value for something I purchase for myself or my family. This mindset transfers over to my work, where if I will do what it takes if I can get a better offer for clients.”
On a personal note, Carrie and her husband, a private pilot, enjoy volunteering for the Young Eagles program at EAA. You just may see them at the rallies in April and September, helping children experience their first flights!
