We side with style over fashion, think timelessness is underrated and find that clothes look best when they're lived in. We love color-blocking and pattern mixing and temper tomboy with heels. We're fans of tousled hair and think everything's right when something's left just a little imperfect. We wear sneakers with suits, wing tips with jeans and chambray on chambray. We don't believe there's such a thing as overdressed - and we don't rent tuxedos. We're an American brand, but we source fabrics from around the world: Japanese seersucker, Irish linen and Italian wool. We don't believe there's just one way to wear an outfit, but we do have a few ideas on how to pull one together. For us, the magic is in the mix.

For example, Liquidity, Lifestyle and Legacy; 3 hallmarks in a client's life that life insurance can offer a solution. * Life insurance isn't the first thing our advisors think about. It is hard and confusing. It starts with a good first impression. Be on point for licensing, continuing education considerations and gaps in health licensure for LTC, provide thought leadership on licensing software or comparable solution. * Vet and participate with others in the process of evaluating software and technology solutions that should be part of the life insurance platform specifically as it pertains to advisor and client experience. * Gather and help the team navigate data about advisors, client segments, and geography.

For example, manage a punch-list at all times, and quarterback the solution with other parts of the firm. * Liaise with the partners inside and outside of the firm to execute on the distribution of life insurance products to all LOBs. * Leverage carrier relationships to improve any and all things around the platform, value proposition, client experience, etc. * Be a resourceful and advocate for our mission; remember this is a First Class operation.
