Posted July 13 2017

CARRIE POOLE 1It takes a special group of people to make insurance fun, which is why you should get to know us!

MHG Insurance Brokers has been serving the marine industry, businesses, and groups and individuals around the world since 1991. A lot goes into a business lasting more than 25 years. Even more goes into a business experiencing success and continuing to grow during that time. While much of it can be attributed to a company’s philosophy, structure, and culture, a business is nothing without the people who execute that philosophy and help create a one of a kind culture. Being in business for over 25 years is no small feat, and much of what is responsible for a business’s success are its people!

Here at MHG, we are an extremely diverse bunch. Many of us are from various countries, involved in several community organizations, and from different career backgrounds. Get to know us as we do some reflecting, and give insight to the history of MHG and its employees.

So, let’s get to know a member of our Finance Team, Carrie!

She graduated from the University of Florida’s prestigious Fisher School of Accounting in 2014 and started working in the Accounting field soon after. Shortly after starting her career in Accounting, Carrie followed another opportunity, joining the MHG Team in October 2014.

MHG Timeline

Community Involvement

Her first project as a member of the Historian Committee will be to compile photos and documents from the League’s history into a ‘yearbook’ of the organization’s membership and accomplishments.
