Eryl Christiansen was promoted from president to CEO and president of Eastern Shore Associates Insurance (ESA), at the agency’s annual meeting in April. Thomas Anthis joined the board as a member at large.
Christiansen has been with ESA for 10 years and served as president for the past two years. Christiansen and his wife reside in Fulton.
“I’m excited about our future as an agency,” Christiansen said. “ I have tremendous confidence in the creative, professional, and skilled team here that will take us to even greater heights as we go forward.
“It has always been my focus to provide insurance programs that help secure and protect our clients. This requires building strong relationships with our clients by understanding both their insurance needs and business objectives.”
Anthis, an insurance agent and broker in ESA’s North Syracuse office, has been with ESA for five years and resides in Syracuse with his wife, son and daughter. “It’s my mission to partner with municipal officials, executives and business owners to develop encompassing insurance programs that will help them to mitigate losses through risk management and loss control practices,” he said. “I pride myself on being a responsive, valuable resource to our clients.
“Being a part of ESA’s board means everything to me. It’s an honor to have an opportunity to assist in the growth of the organization’s tremendous foundation. Equally as important is the opportunity to continue to strengthen the relationships with our valued clients.”
Congratulations Eryl and Thomas!
