We had the good fortune of connecting with Greg Scheinman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Greg, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
People tend to think of insurance as a commodity. it’s not. For entrepreneurs and business owners, next to their family their businesses are the most valuable things they have in their lives. choosing the right agent to represent you can make the difference between insuring your success and losing your business in the event of a significant loss. Insurance is a professional service, not a commodity and should be treated as such. The same you choose a doctor, lawyer, accountant. Top agents and brokers who have transcended The commodity of our industry provide tremendous value to clients, security, peace of mind, proper risk management and financial responsibility.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
They say your network is your net worth and it’s so true. There are many who are responsible for my success in helping to get me where I am and where I still want to go. First and foremost, my family includes my wife Kate I’m almost 20 years and our two boys on and Harper were 17 and 14 respectively. Our CEO Brian Kapiloff at INSGroup. My personal coach Chris Bernal, My trainer Taj Khan. My nutritionist Phil Goglia and most importantly and impactfully, the memory and spirit of my father Alan who lead the way and gave me so much insight and inspiration before he passed.
