McColm named ‘Top Performing Producer’
Matt McColm of the RJ Martinez Agency in Quincy recently was named Eastern Washington’s Top Performing Producer for the Healthplanfinder.
In September of 2013, McColm was invited to the preliminary testing of the Healthplanfinder site. He then volunteered his time to educate and enroll people in Central Washington and, later, statewide. McColm met with thousands of individuals and led free seminars about the Affordable Care Act across the state.
The RJ Martinez Agency was the only agency recognized in Eastern Washington for this distinction of Top Performing Producer.
McColm was appointed last spring to the Outreach Technical Advisory Board on the Exchange. The Washington Association of Health Underwriters also recruited McColm last June to update the board of directors of the Healthplanfinder actions.
McColm currently is expanding the office to the Wenatchee Valley.
