AUSTIN, TX (June 2016) – The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research has announced that Karen Fenters, of Strovis Insurance Agency headquartered in Georgetown, SC, is the 2016 Outstanding CSR of the Year recipient for the state of South Carolina.

To qualify for this top state honor, Karen submitted the winning essay on the topic, “Many in our industry came into insurance by chance, but have built a career by choice. How did you come into the industry, and what are four reasons you stayed and built a career?”

Additionally, Karen Fenters was selected for having demonstrated outstanding service and professionalism within the insurance community.

Karen began her insurance career in 2009 with Strovis Insurance Agency.  She began as receptionist and moved into the customer service capacity nine months later, where she handled all renewals and customer service for the agency.  With the growth of the agency and the addition of other CSR’s, she was promoted to Senior Account Manager in 2015.  She attained her CISR designation in 2013. “Karen proved to be a major asset to our agency early in her career with us and we could not be more proud of the insurance professional she has developed into” said Allen Altman, President Strovis Insurance Agency.

“Karen Fenters was chosen as a state winner for exemplifying the characteristics and qualifications required to be eligible for the prestigious National Outstanding CSR of the Year Award,” states Dr. William T.

Karen Fenters receives a framed certificate, embossed with the special Outstanding CSR of the Year bronze medallion symbol, and is now one of 42 individuals eligible for the national honor. The National Outstanding CSR of the Year Award carries a $2,000 cash prize and a scholarship for the recipient’s employer to any program offered by the National Alliance.
