I am very happy and excited to announce that after an extensive nationwide search, Scott Wick will be taking on the role of President at The Fedeli Group. He will be working closely with me and our team to build upon the success of our insurance, risk management and employee benefits firm.
In his role as President, Scott will be focused on growing the firm through the acquisition of specialized talent, sales leadership, the development of specialized services, industry niches, and technology platforms. As CEO, I will continue to spend time with clients, and focus on strategy and strategic investments.
Scott holds a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an M.B.A. from the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. He worked with Sentry Insurance for two years before being recruited by HUB International, one of the largest privately held insurance firms in the world headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. HUB employs approximately 6,000 employees. In his first year at the firm, he was voted Rookie of The Year. He went on to become a very successful agent developing major business clients before being promoted to sales manager. He was then promoted to oversee the region that became third largest region out of 30, encompassing approximately 800 people in 9 offices, and in that time hired 20 successful agents. He increased his revenue by over 500% through significant organic growth and a series of 8 acquisitions during his tenure at the firm. In 2014, Scott was honored by Business Insurance Magazine as a member of their ’40 under 40’ class for his direct work with some of the firm’s largest insurance clients.
Scott is a very warm, charismatic, bright, kind, and dedicated professional who is very excited to build upon, improve and grow our firm. Scott is willing to take the bold initiative necessary to develop and implement enterprising selling, recruiting, and niche development. He is incredibly enthusiastic about meeting new people, developing strong relationships, and approaching the future with a competitive edge.
As President, Scott will also be executing our goals as the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Revenue Officer. He will be responsible for sales management, and recruiting new talent as our agency grows and moves toward a world-class, middle market insurance consulting and brokerage firm. He will also work closely with me to assure that the 3 major components of clients, associates, and strategic partners are being led, cared for, and serviced in a compassionate, effective, and strategic manner.
Scott and his wife, Megan, have two children, Parker and Hudson, and they plan to relocate from Chicago to the Cleveland area in the future.
When asked why he joined us, Scott replied “The client is always at the center of everything we do. Because of this philosophy,
I am excited and humbled to join The Fedeli Group.” Scott admires our dedicated associates and respects our culture.
As we welcome Scott to our team, we all feel very enthusiastic about the future here at The Fedeli Group as we celebrate the past and embrace the future.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.
Umberto P. Fedeli
