Always moving forward

I’ve never been good at sitting still. Whether I’m sourcing leads, setting appointments, educating myself, or planning for the future, I know that nothing is going to come to me unless I’m willing to put in the work. As a result, I’d much rather spend my time working toward achieving my personal and professional goals. 

 

That approach helped me earn the opportunity to play collegiate lacrosse, and it’s what drove me to create Agent Builder, IFC’s custom staff augmentation program. When I joined IFC in June of 2023, Agent Builder did not exist. Less than a year later, nearly 20 agents have completed the program and are finding success as licensed agents. Some have acquired a book of business from another agent, while others have set up shop as independent agents, or joined existing agencies. As a teacher and coach at heart, knowing that their success is attributable in part to a foundation of knowledge I helped impart is incredibly fulfilling, as is the opportunity to inspire others toward setting and achieving personal and professional goals.

 

I appreciate IFC for giving me the financial security I need to start a family – my first child is due to arrive in August of 2024 – and for giving me the opportunity to act on my passion for helping people succeed. I am committed to helping agents maintain and build on that success and to live their best lives, both professionally and personally. To that end, I make sure the agents I work with know that I am accessible whenever they need me. And if I don’t have an answer to their questions, working at IFC means I can give them immediate and easy access to the experts who can.

Villeneuve, the driving force behind Agent BuilderTM, IFC’s custom staff augmentation solution, will nurture the development of future agents and advisors and support hiring needs for independent agencies

Coon Rapids, MN (October 30, 2023) IFC National Marketing (IFC), the fastest-growing insurance marketing organization (IMO) in the Midwest, is pleased to introduce Frankie Villeneuve as the company’s agent success specialist. Since joining the company this summer, Villeneuve has spearheaded the creation of Agent BuilderTM by IFC, a custom staff augmentation and training solution that helps new agents break into insurance sales and supports the hiring needs of independent agencies. 

 

“Recruiting and retention continue to be significant challenges in the insurance industry, with more than 1.5 million open jobs, and resignations at a 10-year high. As a result, agencies need to either get creative about attracting new talent or find ways to maximize the employees they already have,” said Todd Villeneuve, managing partner,  IFC National Marketing. “In a few short months, Frankie has organized and hosted two, three-week Agent Builder boot camps that helped agents and agencies forge new career and business relationships, which is essential to the health and growth of the insurance industry.”  

 

A native of Rochester, MN, Villeneuve worked as an insurance agent at Equis Financial prior to joining IFC. He demonstrated his leadership skills as a two-year varsity lacrosse captain while studying history and political science at Mars Hill University in Mars Hill, NC. 

 

“From our concierge service to the tools, resources, and guidance we deliver, IFC has a strong tradition of innovation and helping agents and advisors succeed in business and life,” said Villeneuve. “I’m proud to be part of this tradition and the organization my dad helped build, and I’m grateful for the chance to influence the future of the insurance and financial services industry.”
