There he was honored the Western Regional Sales Manager of the Year (1981 and 1982). Earl then served as Vice President of Programmed Insurance Marketing, a large distributor of life and health insurance products to brokers on a national level. During his 8 year interlude as VP with Programmed Insurance Marketing, Earl also launched his own firm (Altshuler Insurance & Financial Services).
It is because of Earl’s leadership and expertise in the insurance and financial fields that he has invested in the growth of his brokerage firm: Altshuler Insurance Services, Inc. where he maintains a diverse range of clients from individual policies to large groups of 600+ employees. Both small and large companies look to Earl for his conception of the developing insurance platform and his strategic approach in benefits administration.
Earl’s extensive 37 year history of working with group sales while preserving his integrity within the insurance field has allowed him the opportunity to educate client’s and colleagues who rely on his tactical approach to providing elite customer care and the building of benefit programs that are cost-efficient and supportive of the client’s requests. His empathy for his clients and his sensible approach toward the health insurance industry has positively reflected upon his commitment in his professional and personal relationships.
