FRISS Celebrates Meaghan Stephenson, 2022 Rising Star Award Winner
May 10, 2022
The RISE Awards go out to high performing young professionals in the insurance industry, in order to draw attention to the newer generation of insurance leaders and pre-emptively fill the talent gap as baby boomers retire. All nominations were reviewed and voted on by the RISE Advisory Board members, who ultimately arrived at the 35 recipients they felt were most deserving of this annual award. As the RISE jury commented, "Every chance she gets, Meaghan uses her voice and passion to speak candidly about how carriers can improve their processes with different technologies on the market, making insurance not only safer but more rewarding."
"I'm proud to see Meaghan win this award," says Ruud van Gerwen, FRISS Head of Global Marketing. "We hired her in 2021 as an intern, and thanks to her vibrant, eager and curious personality she was able to quite immediately contribute. When we presented her with the opportunity to grow into our Field Marketing Manager role for North America, she grabbed it with both hands. I'd like to think that along with Meaghan's notable individual performance, this also reflects on FRISS as a purpose-driven company that is able to attract and support young talent in their careers."
Meaghan states, "To everyone who asks me if I like my job, I tell them without a shadow of a doubt that I'm so thankful and blessed to work for a company like FRISS. My relationships with my coworkers are more than I could've asked for and I'm given countless opportunities to grow both as an employee and insurance professional every day. As much as this award was given to me to acknowledge my personal achievements, it is, in my opinion, equally to recognize my company for molding me into the person that I am, and for giving me the space and freedom to learn and fail successfully."
