"I've worked with Carey Wallace for a number of years at the OIA as well as her role building and leading the IntellAgents. In my time working with Carey, not only is she extremely knowledgeable in the area of insurance agency data analytics, organized and driven but also extremely compassionate, caring, friendly and most concerned with doing what is right for those she is serving rather than completing another business transaction. Carey is a great asset to those that engage with her. She speaks plainly and directly to the subject matter she is working on and is skilled at not just reciting the data directed conclusions she has observed, but more importantly inspiring others to take action and allow that data to make a difference for that client or business. It’s a rare combination in today’s world to find this balance of intelligence, compassion, drive to help others succeed and the ability to inspire those she engages with to take action. Engage Carey with confidence knowing that she truly works with only your best interest in mind.”

Carey is a polished and confident spokesperson who presents to multiple size groups and creates and strengthens Industry and Company relationships.
