Why do you work at Leach?
“After working here at Charles Leach for over 30 years I can vouch for the fact that we do feel each other’s struggles and celebrate each other’s victories together. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to put my roots and stick with this company for basically my entire working career.
I have enjoyed moving through the departments in our office over the years. When I was in personal lines, I had the opportunity to get to know many of my clients on a personal basis, which in turn helped me to get them the best coverage for their needs. I would have to prepare them for the up and coming new driver on their policy or what they would need for that brand new home. When I moved to commercial lines, I still had the same opportunity but also got to hear about their businesses and what goals they wanted to reach, therefore I could help them with what they needed to be covered properly; helping to secure the business’ future.“
