National Underwriter Life & Health congratulates Frank Morizio Jr. as the winner of the Industry Elite Award for Best Rising Star.
Frank was nominated by Michael Perinelli, Agency Sales Director, MetLife, because he believes that Frank’s story of perseverance and determination makes him a perfect model for other young industry practitioners.
Frank, who served in the U.S. Marine Corp. for five years before entering the world of life insurance, has had his share of professional ups and downs. After a promising start to his career–he qualified for MetLife’s leadership conference within his first nine months, the success of his early sales endeavors began to wane as he experimented with different ways to find clients. For the next four years, Frank’s sales were hovering around average and finances were tight for him and his wife.
At the end of his 6th year, an injury to his Achilles tendon disabled him for four months. Frank spent his downtime re-dedicating himself to his work, and upon returning, he immediately began to more than triple his previous year’s production.
