National Broker Names Lauren Yurick as Regional President

LAKE MARY, FL – December 16, 2020 – AssuredPartners is delighted to announce the promotion of Lauren Yurick to Regional President of the Northeast Region for AssuredPartners.   Lauren’s new role will become effective on July 1, 2021 and will report to AssuredPartners President, Randy Larsen. Over the next six months, Lauren will serve as President of AssuredPartners’ New England operations, which primarily includes the new team from the Peoples United Insurance Agency acquisition. During this time, she will continue to serve and advise her current clients, while also working closely with Tom Kozera, the current Regional President, to transition the duties and responsibilities of the Regional President role.

Ms. Yurick began her career in the employee benefits industry in 1989 working for both regional and national insurance carriers in numerous sales and leadership capacities. After several years with a large Fortune 500 insurance provider, she became an independent broker and after six years there, she took the leap and started her own agency. Ms. Yurick joined AssuredPartners in July 2017 as a successful producer and soon thereafter became the Western Region Sales Leader where she dedicated her time to her clients, mentoring young sales leaders and refining the internal sales process through producer development and education.
During her time at AssuredPartners, Lauren has proven to be a leader of strategic development and plan execution at a regional level. Though currently based in Reno, Nevada, in her new role she will relocate to the Northeast region where she has deep roots. She was born and raised in Philadelphia and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. 

AssuredPartners President Randy Larsen stated, “Lauren has a true passion for our industry which is informed by over 30 years’ experience and displayed in her mentorship as a sales leader. We are confident that Lauren will help identify and develop the next generation of leaders at AssuredPartners while also leading our current Northeast region toward operational excellence.

Tom Kozera, current Regional President who has been promoted to EVP and Corporate Risk Officer, added, “I am thrilled about this new direction in the northeast. The northeast region has great sales and operational talent, and I am confident that Lauren will lead this exceptional group into even greater success.  

“We are excited to leverage Lauren’s experience and talents for our operations in the Northeast. We have made several large acquisitions in this region over the last 18 months, which has added to the great foundation established by Tom Kozera and his team. Lauren’s sales acumen, forward-thinking leadership and great mentorship abilities will allow Northeast to continue to thrive in 2021 and beyond,” stated AssuredPartners President and COO Tom Riley.
