Santo in the Community

Team Santo volunteering at the New Hampshire Food Bank

Giving back to the community and serving those less fortunate has always been important to Jamie Santo. Even in the early days as the business was growing, he would volunteer his time at Special Olympics helping the athletes during the winter games at Bretton Woods and later Waterville Valley. His passion for helping others matched his business model for insurance: “helping others when they need it the most.”

That principle in place for over the last 20 years, Santo encourages the staff to find several projects each year, volunteering, coordinating and donating money and assistance to those in need. Staff are taking time off to go on site to do projects like distributing and sorting food at NH Food Bank and plans a summer project with Habitat for Humanity or Building Dreams for Marines. Santo and his staff are thankful for what they have and endeavor to bring hope and happiness to the communities they serve.

Always looking to make a positive impact, Santo feels there is a huge opportunity for job and career growth in the insurance industry throughout New England and across the country. With his background in motivational speaking, sales acumen and a belief in education, Santo is taking the insurance curriculum to the local high schools and colleges to integrate an insurance & risk management program locally with support of Trusted Choice and INVEST Insurance programs.
