Zywave CEO, Dave O’Brien, Tapped to Speak at Game-changing Industry Event, ASCEND


Milwaukee, Dec. 30, 2016 – Zywave, Inc., a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology solutions for the insurance industry, announces its featured sponsorship of the ASCEND Agency Growth and Leadership Summit held Jan. 26-29, 2017, in Nashville, Tennessee.

The ASCEND Summit is a conference exclusively for agency owners and principals of independent employee benefits firms and benefits practice leaders of P&C agencies. ASCEND features growth strategies and business-building topics. In addition to agency growth experts and ASCEND founders Nelson Griswold and Scott Cantrell, ASCEND faculty includes some of the top experts in agency marketing, consultative selling, practice management and executive leadership skills.

Dave O’Brien was asked to join Griswold for a featured Q&A session of industry experts. “We’ve always had a great relationship with Nelson,” said O’Brien. “The bottom line is that Zywave’s commitment and dedication to assisting the independent agent in differentiating from the competition, enhancing client services, improving efficiencies and achieving organic growth is in complete alignment with the purpose of the ASCEND Summit. So, when I was asked to join the lineup of speakers for ASCEND, I was thrilled to say ‘yes’ and to partner with Nelson and his team.”

“This year’s conference is particularly important,” said Griswold, co-founder of ASCEND. “Employee benefits firms are facing more uncertainty, more disruption, more competition and more client demands than ever before. The business model and approach that provided decades of consistent, stable, and lucrative opportunities and revenue is no longer relevant or sustainable. Attendees of ASCEND can discover how top benefit leaders across the country have positioned their firms to take advantage of the new reality and how they are accelerating their growth and success.”
