CENTENNIAL, Colo., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Market Advisor, a product of Summit Professional Networks, announced that Curt Knotick has been named the 2013 Advisor of the Year. Referred to as the industry's most prestigious award, the Advisor of the Year recognizes the top advisor who is successful, trustworthy, committed, ethical, community-focused, and most importantly, a super producer.
"Clients these days are more sophisticated. The best advisors are, too. The best advisors look at the big picture when working with their clients and embrace the idea of 'planning' for the clients instead of pushing a product," said Daniel Williams, editor of Senior Market Advisor. "It is with that basic philosophy in mind that Senior Market Advisor selected this year's Advisor of the Year, Curt Knotick. Knotick exemplifies the best qualities great advisors encompass. He's a super producer, he treats his clients with respect and professionalism and he's an integral part of his community. These traits made him the ideal choice as our 2013 Advisor of the Year."
Knotick started as a Metropolitan Life agent in 1989 and became an independent agent in 1994, working primarily with group and individual health products and life insurance. His transition to the senior market came about after he became interested in the long-term care industry and Medicare supplements. His average client age has dropped in recent years, as younger clients have realized the need to take control and plan prior to retirement versus just reacting to retirement. That increased awareness of the need for planning fits well with his focus on retirement income. Find out more about his journey to Advisor of the Year.
Knotick will be featured on the cover of the September issue of Senior Market Advisor -- in print and online. To learn more about the 2013 Advisor of the Year finalists, view their profiles online at LifeHealthPro.com/AdvisorOfTheYear.
