Carmen Suarez has been in the insurance industry for 40 years. Having held various titles throughout the years, Carmen finds working as Executive Vice President of Program Business for JGS Insurance for the past 17 years to be the most fulfilling of her career.
As EVP of Program Business for Preferred Property Program aka PPP (a subsidiary of JGS Insurance), Carmen finds overseeing the day to day operations of the programs, sharing her insurance knowledge with new generations of professionals and leading a great team extremely rewarding.
Funny thing, ever since watching the movie “Working Girl” back in the late 80’s, Carmen was inspired by Melanie Griffith’s character; and once she too obtained that corner office, she hasn’t stopped giving it her all. Having come from humble beginnings Carmen is extremely proud of her accomplishments; but none more than being the mother of 2 (a son who joined the insurance industry; and a daughter who became a doctor).
When not at work, Carmen enjoys cooking, traveling and most importantly spending time with family.
