Employee Profile: Mat Geffin
Meet Mat Geffin, Vice President of Business Development at Webber and Grinnell.
A familiar face to many in the Pioneer Valley business community, Mat’s enthusiasm for his work is contagious. He has been an integral part of Webber and Grinnell’s growth since joining the agency in 2009.
According to Mat, one of the best parts of his job is working with local companies and seeing them thrive. “I love getting to know the client and learning their business,” he said.
When working with new clients, Mat enjoys delving into the details to provide them with better protection and more peace of mind. Mat focuses his energy on identifying coverage gaps, finding more competitive rates and educating clients about their policies “Fixing people’s coverage is what we’re really good at,” he said. “We want to make their business better.”
Building strong client relationships is a high priority for Mat. He is always willing to go the extra mile to meet a client’s needs. Recently, Mat met with a business owner over the weekend to work on a policy while their kids played together.
A Southampton native, Mat currently lives in Westfield with his family. He is passionate about giving back to the community where he lives and works, and is proud of Webber and Grinnell’s commitment to local philanthropy.
For the second straight year, Mat is chairing the Pioneer Valley United Way’s annual fundraising campaign. Funds raised support agencies that promote health, financial stability and education in Hampden County. Mat is taking the lead again in 2014 because of his steadfast support of the United Way’s mission. “The campaign targets what I am most passionate about, the things I want to see improved,” he said.
Mat juggles his many roles with a positive attitude and a sense of humor. Call him if you have questions about your business insurance coverage – he is always happy to help!
