“Shawn understands the Glatfelter culture and has deep experience in ramping up national programs,” said Art Seifert, president of Glatfelter Program Managers. “He is a go-getter with great marketing and sales instincts, and he is the right person to help build Glatfelter Religious Practice as a successful national program.”

We don’t need to have $50,000 of estimated premium to bind the account; the account needs $50,000 in estimated written premium to be eligible,” Yingling said.
