ITASCA, IL – Brown & Joseph, an international commercial collection agency for Insurance Premium Recovery announces that Tom Yodzis, formerly with CNA Insurance and Zurich Insurance, has joined the team at Brown & Joseph and Altus!
Tom brings over 35 years of experience in the insurance industry, most of it leading billing and collection departments with three different insurance carriers. Most recently, Tom served as Assistant Vice President at CNA Insurance. Prior to that, he spent 15 years at Zurich Insurance in a similar role.
“Brown & Joseph’s commitment to the insurance industry for premium recovery solutions is unparalleled in the collection industry. As a long-term client, I knew I could count on them,” Tom commented.
“And now as a team member of Brown & Joseph, I am looking forward to sharing these same capabilities and attributes with insurance carriers.”
In 1996, Tom joined the Insurance Collection Executives (ICE), a group of like-minded professionals in the insurance industry confronted with the challenges for collecting premium receivables. For over 40 years, ICE has provided Insurance Collection Executives a forum to promote and encourage the exchange of ideas of mutual benefit and to discuss pertinent subjects of interest to the insurance industry.
Seeing a need to expand the group, Tom led the organization’s transformation in 2005 and served as its first President for 10 years. Since then, Tom has remained on the Board of Directors. During his tenure with ICE, Tom helped ICE to be recognized as the premiere Insurance billing and collection conference for Insurance Executives.
“Tom brings invaluable insight into our business as a client while at CNA and Zurich. I have known Tom for more than 10 years and could not be more excited to bring yet another asset to our insurance clients with Tom’s vast knowledge of the insurance industry,” commented Mike Baldwin, CEO of Brown & Joseph and Altus.
In his new role as Vice President of Sales, Tom will work closely with Sales and Operations to support Brown & Joseph and Altus’s impressive growth trajectory.
