January - Liz Kusske
Liz joined DBS in August 2011 and will be celebrating her 10-year anniversary this summer!
Liz came to DBS after being highly recommended by numerous industry associates. In fact, before joining DBS, Liz worked with several advisors affiliated with DBS. She came to the company already acquainted with a few of the DBS employees. Her previous industry experience included working for a John Hancock GA as their New Business Manager and as a Regional Sales Administrator for Penn Mutual.
Liz is an integral part of the DBS team. She is responsible for making everything run smoothly in addition to managing Chip and Tori’s responsibilities. Furthermore, Liz plays a key role in the detailed, weekly reporting on sales numbers. She continues to build on her knowledge of the CRM and has been instrumental in assisting the Sales Team in learning and using the CRM, building reports, and customizing their views to improve their experience.
Most recently, she worked diligently on organizing the January Sales Team meeting. This year, because it was held virtually, the schedule was a little different. Instead of devoting a full week as we typically do for an in-person meeting, we met each Friday during the month of January. This allowed the Sales Team to continue working each week, rather than lose that valuable time with advisors.
A nomination we received explains her part in the success of this meeting:
“Liz was very instrumental in the development and delivery of the January Sales Team meeting. From working on events and schedules to coordinating with carriers – she was the glue. She partnered with Laura and the marketing team, as well as with Kurt, to find ways to have a successful meeting. In addition, she held a breakout session on CRM tips each Friday afternoon for the team.”
The comments we received on these sessions were: “My CRM session with Liz was the best part of the day!” and “I am so glad that Liz helped me on the CRM – it really will save me this year.”
This is Liz’s 4th Employee of the Month win, having won in 2014, 2017, and most recently in July of last year. Congratulations Liz!
