Get to Know YBC President Alanna Taylor

New year, new awesome people we get to work with. Alanna Taylor, Commercial Producer at Knox Worldwide in North Bay is this year’s Young Brokers Council (YBC) President. YBC is a group of 650+ young professionals who, as Alanna describes, come together for one specific reason – their passion for insurance.

“People join because they want to make things better: more efficient, more modern, better for their clients. We share what’s worked and what hasn’t, and have fun getting to know each other in the process. YBC really broadens your connections, professionally but socially as well.”
