James E. Adkins Jr. named Company’s Council President.

Every year, New York Life honors its most successful Agents.

For us “success” isn’t just about selling financial products. Instead, it encompasses a combination of professional and personal qualities, culminating in an Agent’s commitment to his or her local community and ability to help families achieve financial security.

This year, Jim Adkins of our Greater Washington, D.C., office has emerged as the company’’ most outstanding professional and has been named New York Life’s Council President.* It is an honor that can only be earned once during an Agent’s career. Jim has been an industry leader for more than 18 years.

For displaying similar qualities, Donna Elison Lacour, LUTCF, an Agent with the New Orleans office, has earned the title Council Vice President. Donna has been providing financial protection to families and businesses in her hometown for eight years.

Overall, this year more than 4,500 New York Life Agents will be recognized for professional excellence. The qualities that are important to you in an Agent are even more critical to us: dedicated customer service, product knowledge, strong communication skills, and experience.

When you put all these skills together, you have Agents who are at the top of their professions, financial services professionals who are active in their communities and dedicated to their clients. Congratulations to our New York Life Agents. If you are interested in finding an Agent, click on the link to get started.

*As Council President, Adkins is also a member of Chairman’s Cabinet of New York Life. Members of the elite Chairman’s Cabinet are the top-50 highest producing Agents among the company’s elite sales force of more than 12,000 licensed Agents.
