New Gen­eral Man­ager ap­pointed for NAGICO St Lu­cia

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

NAGICO St. Lu­cia Lim­ited of­fi­cially opened its new build­ing over the week­end, at­tract­ing scores of in­ter­me­di­aries, clients and ma­jor play­ers in the in­sur­ance in­dus­try.

The launch was in­ten­tion­ally timed to com­mem­o­rate NAGICO’s 5th an­niver­sary in Saint Lu­cia and the com­pany’s 35th year of ex­is­tence. In an el­e­gant set­ting, mir­ror­ing the brand new, mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture, Chair­man of the NAGICO Group, Im­ran McSood Am­jad, said that the erec­tion of the build­ing sig­ni­fies that NAGICO is set­ting down roots in Saint Lu­cia and will not only con­tinue to be the num­ber one gen­eral in­surer here, but also be part of the com­mu­nity. “We could have been like other in­sur­ers and op­er­ated only through an agent or bro­ker and yes, it would have been cheaper, but we want to show you that we are com­mit­ted to our staff, we are com­mit­ted to our agents and bro­kers and most of all we are com­mit­ted to our clients whom we have pledged to give ex­cep­tional ser­vice,” he said. “So this build­ing sig­ni­fies per­ma­nency, it gives us a face in Saint Lu­cia, it pro­vides a surety to our clients that in the event they have an is­sue, they have some­where to go, peo­ple who will be ac­count­able to them.”

CEO of NAGICO, Dwayne El­gin, thanked the hard­work­ing team in Saint Lu­cia for its ded­i­ca­tion which has led to NAGICO St. Lu­cia be­ing named the num­ber 1 Gen­eral In­surer two years in a row.

“When we started in Saint Lu­cia, there were nearly a dozen other in­sur­ance com­pa­nies, many who have been around longer than us, but be­cause of the hard work of our staff and the tire­less ef­forts of our in­ter­me­di­aries, we were named num­ber one and that could not have been pos­si­ble with­out our Saint Lu­cia team.”

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony, the newly ap­pointed Gen­eral Man­ager, Ms. Adele Jn Bap­tiste, asked for their con­tin­ued sup­port and pledged hers in re­turn. She gave recog­ni­tion to three of NAGICO St. Lu­cia’s long­stand­ing clients and pre­sented them with a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion. In col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Chair­man and CEO, she also made two ‘Al­ways There’ mon­e­tary do­na­tions: to a 24-year-old can­cer pa­tient, Kisha Theophile, and to the St. Lu­cia Alzheimer’s & Dementia As­so­ci­a­tion.
