Chris Fernandez Leader of the Tech Department

 In Executive Blog

 

How did your tech journey start?

At the age of fifteen Chris Fernandez knew that technology made him happy.  He received some of his training at Bollman tech taking all the computer, and networking classes that would fit into his schedule.

How did you end up at Affordable American Insurance?

My father needed some help setting up a few computers at his new insurance agency. There was always one more tech project that needed to be worked on. It has been a wild ride since I started in 2005.

What did you do when you first started at the company?

Sometimes when you are first hired at a company you just need to get your foot into the door, taking any position available. I was a lucky one being placed in a tech department at a young age.

What do you do at Affordable American Insurance?

I put out fires at Affordable American Insurance. Not literal fires but mainly tech emergency that AAI might face. I am always taking technology to the next level at Affordable American Insurance. If you can think of it, it can probably be done.

What makes you excited about AAI?

AAI is one of the best places to be.  AAI is not just a place to work but it is a family.  I get to fix and work with computers all day and any day I can do that is a great day.

How do you help new agents that come on board?

Agents are the lifeblood of AAI that is why I help them with setting up their computers so their business can thrive.

What advice would you give to to an agent thinking about going independent?

If you are looking at going independent look for ways that the agency is marketing itself and how they use his technology. Technology is the future of insurance and make sure that the company you sign up with is good with technology.

We will end with a fun question.  If you could be a superhero which one would you be?

I am a tech guy so I would have to go with Iron Man.  He can fly and use technology now that is something cool.
