Mark Brissett: What's needed for this job? High school or post-secondary education, relevant working experience of course and also a general insurance agent's licence. Desjardins is a great place to work. Great people; great leadership. I love the environment, the atmosphere. Working with people. And people are calling because they have a need; a need that requires an insurance professional to accommodate that. And because of that I take my role very seriously. It's just a wonderful place—a culture of excellence, a culture of growth. It's just second to none.
