Theodore Pappas, Agency Owner in New York, has achieved some impressive milestones during his time with National Income Life Insurance Company (NILICO). In 2001 he was one of NILICO’s top 20 personal producers. From 2002-2005 he was a top Master General Agent. And this was only during his first five years with the Company!

Before joining National Income Life, Theodore was a sales manager for a commercial printing company. When the printing company was sold in 2000, he began looking elsewhere for a new career. He became interested in NILICO because of the opportunity for growth both as a producer and as a Manager. Theodore knew the Company was right for him because of the many opportunities it offers its Representatives. But the opportunity that interested him most in NILICO was the ability to move up in the Company.

Originally, the most rewarding aspect of his career at NILICO was the income. But as he continued working with the Company, that changed. He focused on his ability to advance his career as a Manager, which led him to his current position. Now Theodore helps other Representatives accomplish the same level of success he’s achieved. One of the most rewarding aspects of his job is sharing this opportunity with others, and seeing them flourish in his offices as they make a better life for themselves and their families.

A family man himself, Theodore thinks about families when approaching his sales. When asked about NILICO products, Theodore said, “I believe our products are beneficial because they help fill in the gaps for working families. Our concern is getting the right products in place for each individual family.” In addition to devotion to his own family, Theodore regularly donates time and effort to several organizations such as the Special Olympics, American Cancer Society, Leukemia Foundation, and clothing drives.

Theodore offers advice to anyone who plans to join the NILICO family: “Go for it and hold on for the ride. Nothing worthwhile in life is easy, but a career with AIL/NILICO is not only financially rewarding but personally rewarding as well.”

Before joining American Income Life Insurance Company (AIL) in 2017, Jesus Romero had a successful career in his native Venezuela.  After earning a Master’s degree in Financial Management from National Experimental University of Guayana (UNEG) in 2003, he was a manager and CEO for the second largest company in the country.

“I joined American Income Life because of the endless opportunity for growth that AIL offers,” Jesus recalls.  “I’m uniquely qualified to head an Agency because of the management and leadership skills I developed in my previous career.  I pursued this particular opportunity to help and guide those who want to join the American Income Life team,” he adds.

What’s most rewarding about the AIL experience for Jesus?  “Becoming a Supervising Agent in only two months with an Agency that generated one million dollars in premium in only seven months is a great accomplishment,” he states.  “But what’s most rewarding for me personally is the opportunity to lead my own Agency.  I wouldn’t change anything about my AIL career.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey,” he emphasizes.  

Does Jesus have advice to others joining the AIL family?  “When you offer AIL products that provide people protection at an affordable price, you create the best option to grow your career and better your family’s quality of life,” he says.   My goal as an Agency Owner is to create a foundation to help all those in need.  As a result, our Agency offers this area a tremendous opportunity for growth and the improvement of life for both team members and their customers,” he stresses.

When not working, Jesus enjoys family time, which includes his two dogs.  “Being from Venezuela, I enjoy Salsa music and one of Venezuela’s most delicious and versatile foods … arepas, basically a stuffed corn tortilla shaped like an English muffin.  I also like sports and am a fan of the New York Yankees and the soccer teams in Barcelona and Brazil.  I play soccer myself and also enjoy reading and giving leadership and motivational conferences,” he adds.
