Congratulations Samantha Konner for being awarded a DI Next Generation recipient
Samantha Konner may have only been a Financial Representative since 2017, but she has been a part of the CFS family since she was a young girl as her mother, Cathy Konner, has been with the firm for over 25 years.
Originally working in the hospitality industry, Samantha pivoted to develop a career alongside her mother in financial services. She recognized that instead of creating experiences for people for just a weekend in a hotel, she could create experiences for people for their entire lifetimes by providing financial strategies that would help them build financial confidence. The value of helping others with important decisions that could make or break someone’s future gave Samantha the determination to follow in her mother’s footsteps.
In 2019, just two years after entering the industry, Samantha was presented with the Guardian DI Next Generation Award. This award recognizes new associates who show a strong and growing commitment to the importance of individual disability income insurance and who ensures that it is a part of their clients’ financial strategies.
There were about 2,100 potential qualifiers for this award, and Samantha is proud to be the only female of 9 qualified individuals.
As this is a very exciting and humbling moment for Samantha, it is just the beginning. CFS is proud to be a part of her journey towards a bright and successful career.
