Knowing the needs of your target market makes it much easier to not only land new business but retain existing accounts. As an investigations franchise specializing in insurance fraud, L&W Investigations works directly with claims analysts from many major insurance companies. And that’s an audience new Strategic Business Development Manager Alyson Levine knows firsthand.
Prior to joining L&W Investigations at the end of last year, Levine worked as a special investigations unit analyst for Nationwide in Phoenix, Arizona. There, she worked with L&W Investigations franchise offices up and down the West Coast. Impressed by L&W’s professionalism and expertise and its growth potential, Levine left the warm climes of the southwest for central Massachusetts and a position as L&W’s strategic business development manager.
“From my perspective, as an SIU analyst, you couldn’t help but be blown away by the work and people of L&W. They always went above and beyond the call and their reports and attention to detail were without peer. So when I had my first conversation about a position with L&W’s Chairman Neal Lyons, I was already sold on what L&W had to offer. After hearing his vision for growing the company as the only private investigations franchise in the country, it closed the deal,” said Levine.
As strategic business development manager, Levine oversees the new business development efforts of 14 of L&W’s 35 franchise offices nationwide. In addition to new business, she also provides guidance to franchise owners in managing existing accounts, particularly as it pertains to working with claims analysts.
“Having been on the client side of our business, Alyson brings an invaluable perspective to both new business and our existing accounts. Her skills and insights are particularly helpful to our franchise owners, many of whom come from other professions and may not know all the nuances of the insurance business,” said Neal Lyons, chairman and CEO of L&W Investigations, Inc.
A graduate of Framingham State College, Levine also holds (any insurance certifications or titles). She currently resides in Worcester, Massachusetts.
L&W works with a variety of organizations-- insurance companies, third-party administrators, self-insured companies, law firms and municipalities—on fraudulent workers compensation, disability, liability, auto and property claims. L&W’s offerings include:
• Activity/Disability Checks
• Asset/background investigations
• Medical audits/clinic inspections
With 35 locations nationwide in 23 states, the L&W typically employs three to eight investigators at each office. While many traditional “mom and pop” investigative firms are typically a haven for retired law enforcement officers who treat the job more like a hobby, L&W employs seasoned investigators who specialize in investigating insurance fraud cases. All L&W investigators go through extensive training and have access to the
most state-of-the-art surveillance equipment.
