SECURA’s Brett Purcell named Steve Welker Associate of the Year by IIABAZ
Nearly anyone who does their job well doesn’t do it for recognition. In Brett Purcell’s case, he does it because he cares deeply about the work he does, the company he works for, and the people he engages.
On August 17, Purcell received the Steve Welker Associate of the Year award from the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Arizona (IIABAZ) at its 83rd annual convention.
