Bridgepointe Technologies, the master agent and tech-services broker, has expanded into Southern California with the appointment of Gary Jacobs as vice president of channel sales.
“My background allows me to uncover agents’ needs, and then collaboratively align strategies to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship," said Jacobs. “I know the program resources carriers have available to them and am able to leverage those resources to benefit both our agents and mutual customers."
Jacobs joins Bridgepointe from TelePacific Communications, where he was director of channel sales, playing an instrumental role in advancing the Telepartner program.
“We have an enormous opportunity to advance agent awareness in the Southern California market," said Scott Evars and Brian Miller, Bridgepointe’s co-founders. “We are looking forward to working with our agents to realize that potential and are excited to enter into this new chapter along with Gary."
