As Director of Strategic Projects, Mike Chochon helps in deciding where to focus company resources going forward. The goal is to provide agents with the most flexible and complete product suite, so they can better serve their clients and grow their practice. With over 20 years of experience in financial services, Mike brings a wealth of experience to SMS. This is his first direct participation in the insurance industry. The opportunity to participate in SMS’s growth in health solutions and wealth solutions is perfectly aligned with his career aspirations. Mike is a co-founder of PrairieSmarts, the assets of which were just sold to Covisum, our technology subsidiary. The SmartRisk application was created to help agents, advisors and their clients better understand the risk inherent in their portfolio.
