Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, announces Miguel Torres as the new Market Director for Chicago, Ill. Torres will be responsible for the growth of the Latino market with a focus on Spanish-speaking communities and bilingual sales professionals in Chicago and surrounding areas.
Torres is a licensed insurance professional of 16 years who specializes in life insurance and financial planning in Chicagoland. He has been active in the community since 1998 as President of The Latin American Student Organization (L.A.S.O.), a socio-cultural based student organization at Wilbur Wright College. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Rincón Family Services and has previously served on the board for McCormick Tribune YMCA.
This year, Combined Insurance has grown to nearly 250 bilingual sales professionals who work one-on-one with Spanish-speaking customers across the nation. The company recently announced the expansion of its Latino Zone which is expected to grow to 400 sales professionals in Illinois, Florida, Texas, and California. In addition, to support this growth, the Company has increasingly hired bilingual support staff—33 percent of corporate employees hired so far in 2016, located at the corporate offices in Glenview and Chicago, Ill., are bilingual in English and Spanish.
“Our commitment to seek top Latino talent and provide them with the opportunity to serve their community makes us an employer of choice for bilingual and multi-cultural professionals,” said Torres. “I am proud to represent a company that values the Latino population by offering meaningful products that protect families and individuals in the language they prefer.”
Torres was formally elected President of the Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce of Illinois, who awarded him ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ in 2010. He was also recognized Top 100 Who's Who in Chicago Hispanic Power by Negocios Now, a Latino-focused business publication in Chicago.
