Elrod Outten, Branch Manager of Colina’s Freeport, Grand Bahama office received the company’s Employee of the Year award. Over the course of 2019, Elrod made several noteworthy contributions to the organization. In particular, during Hurricane Dorian, Elrod went above and beyond the call of duty to maintain contact with team members ensuring their safety and wellbeing during the storm and helping to facilitate corporate relief efforts following the hurricane’s passage.

Outten was selected from among the company’s Employees of the Quarter for 2019 which included Shenika Rolle, Nyoshi Ward, Deangelo Conliffe, Ian McKinney and Charlene Rodgers.

Veoshe Johnson and Sandradee Henfield were also among those to receive top company awards. Johnson of the Freeport branch received Colina’s Seasoned Salesperson of the Year award for 2019 and Henfield from the Admiral’s Club attained Colina’s Executive Salesperson of the Year Award for 2019.

“Proper planning to protect our loved ones in the event of unforeseen disasters, as well as to achieve crucial future financial goals is such an important issue for all families,” said Philip Smallwood, Director of Sales, Agency Services, Colina Insurance Limited. “Once a year we like to recognize those Colina employees who have really gone out of their way to achieve this for so many families.”

Colina is proud to have employees who make such valuable contributions to the organization and continually recognizes its staff throughout the year, culminating with Awards Day each January.

“At Awards Day each year, we celebrate those achieving major milestones with Colina,” said Maxine V. Seymour, Director, Corporate Communications, Colina Insurance Limited. “Today we honored employees who have given from five up to thirty years of service to the company which is a testament to the loyalty and consistency of these individuals as well as a reflection on Colina as an exceptional employer.”
“We also celebrated top agents at our wholly-owned subsidiary, Colina General Insurance Agency (CGIA), a significant player in the property and casual market,” said Seymour. “Through CGIA, many persons obtain appropriate coverage for their homes, boats, vehicles and other assets.”
