As our most recently appointed Regional Sales Director for the Northeast Region, Katie’s new responsibilities include sustaining current client, agent, and partner relationships, plus expanding our services to new customers in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire.
Katie earned a B.A in English from Central Connecticut State University and comes to First Nonprofit Group with 15 years of experience effectively supporting insurance providers in customer service, claims, and marketing. She has solid familiarity working with the AmTrust network and other insurance agents/brokers in an effort to strengthen their ability to successfully serve a variety of business and nonprofit customers. Her understanding of the needs and trends in the marketplace is a consequence of years actively interacting with a variety of customers and potential customers. Her commitment to achievement is reflected in her years as an effective manager of a sales team dedicated to bringing the highest benefit to their customers.
Best of all, Katie’s enthusiasm to positively serve and improve nonprofit organizations is fully evident in her own energetic life. “I’ve been heavily involved with Marc Community Resources, a local nonprofit in CT that provides services for children and adults with disabilities. We just had our annual wine tasting fundraiser in June and were fortunate enough to raise more money than ever.”
Katie is also a mother of two very active children, Hunter (16) and Cody (9), plus a Jack Russell/Basset Hound mix named Chug. When “spare time” comes available she loves to golf, read, swim, camp, hike, kayak, travel, and is an avid Patriots fan. She aspires to be the best Mom, the best advocate for First Nonprofit Group, and to make a positive impact for the nonprofit community!
Do you know a nonprofit, governmental or tribal entity that could benefit from Katie’s expertise and enthusiasm in addition to First Nonprofit Group’s successful unemployment programs in the Northeast Region? Reach out to Katie directly at KSimmons@firstnonprofit.com or by phone at 860-571-3189.
First Nonprofit has saved us so much money over the state’s program. We had one little glitch with the state recently and we contacted FNP immediately. FNP staff called us back immediately and moved to remedy the problem.
First Nonprofit has been a great partner. They have helped us saved hundreds of thousands of dollars! They have awesome resources for our nonprofit organization. Thanks for the partnership.
Life is certainly busy these days but having business partners like First Nonprofit has made some of the process hassle free. We have worked with this team for years. When we changed payroll systems, they outlined every step. I think this team is terrific and I know they get the job done! Thank you, Cruz, to all the team at FNP.
FNP has helped our agency to save thousands of dollars every year on our unemployment coverage. The service is phenomenal, and we are thankful to their team as our partner. My experience working with Marshall on the advocacy around UE for nonprofits was also a highlight as someone who teaches advocacy and lobbying for nonprofits. Really, your whole team is top shelf, so thank YOU!
Chicago Children’s Theatre has greatly benefited from our partnership with First Nonprofit, and I have always enjoyed working with the staff on our filings and any complicated questions. I would not hesitate to recommend First Nonprofit to fellow nonprofits. We’re very happy customers.
FNP is a great resource for Daniel Kids. To have a TPA that we can count on to take point on not only managing our unemployment claims, but to support and guide any protest hearing, is invaluable. All the professional support staff we have worked with have been excellent, very knowledgeable and responsive. We are grateful for the help and support, thank you.
When I first began in my position at my organization, I hadn’t had experience working with a company like FNP. The staff was so patient and helpful in helping to explain the benefits of First Nonprofit. Anytime I reach out with a question I receive a quick, clear, and thorough response. I’m so thankful that we decided to partner with FNP. Their excellence in customer service, coupled with their variety of packages frees us up to truly serve our staff and community with a peace of mind knowing that our organization is protected against unanticipated unemployment insurance expenses.
First Nonprofit gets an A+ in my book. You are so easy to work with & very knowledgeable! Whether it is my quarterly correspondence with Kim or my random interactions with Dawn about a bond … I am so pleased that I get to work with such a helpful company. Thank you!
