SGA Biography Surace & Smith
Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio State General Agent, James Surace, was in real estate before joining American Income Life Insurance Company. When the real estate market softened, James seized the AIL opportunity. He was attracted to American Income Life because of leads made available, giving Agents places to go and reasons to be there.
His first year with AIL, James was runner up for Agent of the Year. He was promoted to State General Agent his second year with the Company and was so successful he built his own 12,000 square foot office building. He was the SGA of the Year in 2006 and 2008 and is proud that 10 other State General Agents have been promoted from his office.
Is James pleased he made the career switch? “This position has allowed me to fulfill a purpose greater than myself and given me an income that will extend to impact generations. It’s an amazing position of influence where you build riches while changing the world through impacting and improving lives. Life insurance is the only product people can buy that can take care of those they love most if they are not there to do it.”
To those considering a career move to American Income Life, James says, “My advice is to get in the AIL door as quickly as you can. With AIL, I can live out my purpose 24/7 as my interests, hobbies, and mission in life are impacting people’s lives in a positive way … to serve people.”
AIL has given James the opportunity to serve many people through his personal and financial involvement with organizations like the Jesus Film Project, City Mission, LOVE INC., his local church, Across Borders, Love Mercy Organization, All-School Assembly Program, Lighthouse Ministries, and the YMCA.
