Alliance Group, a leading national insurance marketing organization, announces a series of promotions – The Durango Herald

ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 27, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Alliance Group, a leading national insurance marketing organization (IMO), has announced a series of promotions to its ranks, effective immediately.

Mark Powell has been promoted from systems engineer to chief strategy officer, a move CEO Lee Duncan says will greatly benefit Alliance Group’s technology push in 2022 and beyond.

“With Mark’s help, we developed a state-of-the-art agent portal last year and Mark’s promotion to CSO will help us continue to push the tools and systems we have. developed for our agents and partner agencies to be technologically cutting edge,” Duncan said. “I’m excited to see what Mark and his team can do with him in this new role.”

Powell previously led teams of up to 150 people implementing technology solutions for Fortune 500 companies such as Cigna, Home Depot, Nationwide and Blackstone Group, to name a few.

In a separate move, Boise, Idaho-based Steve Walther has been named the company’s new vice president of sales and distribution. Walther previously held the title of National Training Director at Alliance Group.

“As the Alliance Group grows, someone needs to focus exclusively on the tasks of finding ways to grow existing business streams while also developing new ones. Steve’s industry experience has been a huge asset to us at the Alliance Group for almost a decade now, and we are pleased to have him take on this new role for us,” said Duncan.

Andrea Buffo has been promoted to vice president of operations, a role Duncan says she’s been fulfilling for quite some time now during her seven years with Alliance Group.

Of Buffo’s move, Lee Duncan said, “I’ve always described Andrea as my right hand, and maybe my left as well. She has a keen eye for detail and I have always appreciated her ability to organize and turn all the plates around for us on multiple fronts. This promotion will help us continue to keep all leads aligned as The Alliance Group accelerates towards our goal of $100 million in combined production by 2030.”
