Best Practices—Leaving A Lasting Legacy
October 5, 2021 by Ben Nevejans
Our industry lost a great man last month. To know Bill Zimmerman was to love and respect him. Though it would take him hours to make it through just one aisle of the NAILBA exhibit hall, stopping every couple of yards to engage with an old friend or meet someone new, he could never get enough of learning and giving back. Much to his chagrin he hadn’t been as active in the industry for the past several years as he once was. Not having his extraordinary presence around was missed by all who knew him but also left many new to the industry without an understanding of what his contributions meant to our community. Bill Z’s long career in the life insurance and financial services trade spanned over five decades. During his first 20 years he excelled as a top personal producer, as an agency manager, as a PPGA and finally as the founder of one of the leading independent marketing organization in the country.
