LegalShield has announced two senior leadership promotions during its 2017 LevelUp Convention.
The legal services provider has tapped James Rousseau, former President of LegalShield Business Solutions, as its new Chief Commercial Officer, overseeing company strategy and organizational implementation. His colleague Glenn Petersen, who joined LegalShield in November 2016 as senior vice president of broker and partnership sales, is succeeding Rousseau as President of LegalShield Business Solutions. The role encompasses broker, general agency, group and partnership sales.
“LegalShield’s success depends upon leadership development and these moves strengthen our team as we strive to protect and empower people,” said Jeff Bell, LegalShield CEO. “As the company’s 45th anniversary approaches, we are ready and eager to reach new milestones and set the bar higher for excellent and innovative service.”
The news comes as LegalShield is wrapping its annual convention in Oklahoma City, an event that features training, inspiration and recognition for the company’s Independent Sales Associates. During the five-day affair, management also announced that membership levels have reached record highs for three months in a row, with more than 1.6 million now subscribing to the company’s legal and identity theft plans.
