Linda Rey, Chief Results Officer
Linda Rey craves hearing about business success stories. Her insurance experience spans 30+ years. As a previous insurance agency owner, Linda managed the Commercial Lines Department, new business development, agency branding and networking.
Her professional experience includes (in no particular order):
* Sales and marketing strategies
* Implementing management concepts
* Personnel Development
Linda launched a new venture in 2018 with her partner, Trevor Curran. They created a Commercial Financing Brokerage to help entrepreneurs expand their enterprise with unique and cost effective business credit financing solutions as well as commercial mortgages.
Linda cut her teeth in her father’s insurance agency in the mid-1980’s with a typewriter, carbon-copy paper forms and a mad dash to the post office to snail-mail applications via certified mail!
Linda was determined to blaze her own trail after college and start a new adventure. In 1990, she found herself in Atlanta and dove headfirst into a successful career. Guess which industry? You got it! INSURANCE. What a happy accident!
Linda’s new career was with a reinsurance corporation as an Ocean Marine Underwriter. After 9 years, she returned to Sleepy Hollow, NY, and re-joined her father’s agency. She assisted with technology upgrades, building the brand and networking with community and business organizations to expand the agency’s visibility.
In 2000, Linda earned her professional licenses including Life & Health and Property & Casualty Broker and 6 & 63 securities licenses.
In 2009, Linda discovered social media and was hooked. Her talent at building business using the 21st century tools, alongside old-fashioned selling and networking efforts, resulted in an 800% increase in revenue.
Linda has been professionally recognized by various organizations including 914Inc.Magazine, Westchester County Business Journal, Sleepy Hollow Chamber of Commerce, American Association of University Woman, Westchester Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Westchester Magazine and Institute of Applied Human Dynamics.
Linda’s community contributions include various community and county organizations such as Sleepy Hollow Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of the Tarrytowns, Westchester Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, Westchester Association of Women Business Owners, Food Bank of Westchester and Westchester County Association.
She’s been featured in various publications such as but not limited to Fortune Small Business, The Insurance Journal, Independent Agent, American Agent & Broker, Journal News, Westchester Business Journal, Westchester Magazine’s 914Inc. etc.
Linda was also a proud contributor for the Equifax Insurance Blog from 2010-2014.
Linda is a 2007 graduate the Academy of Entrepreneurial Excellence from the Westchester Community College in conjunction with the Business Council of Westchester.
Linda LOVES working with business-owners who see their limitless potential with growing their business.
Multiple careers across decades-long timelines only begin to define Trevor. He was a writer and musician in his teens and twenties. Manager in the retail trade in his late twenties. Banker…including Manager and Sales Director…in the ensuing 30 years of his career in mortgage financing.
These days Trevor resides out in the country in Roxbury, Connecticut. Yet he hasn’t left behind the standards he developed in his mortgage financing career, including a severe attention to detail and a desire to provide access to credit when Banks, Underwriters, and the general population of the financing world tell business owners that dreaded word, “No.”
Sing me a song and find me that financing I need to grow my business.
Yes, this sounds like a song.
