Daffy found it extremely humbling to receive the phone call that he was a finalist, “I feel quite proud to be a part of the insurance broker industry, which I believe to have an important purpose and a strong level of integrity. The nomination has forced me to pause and reflect on the foundations of my career – what my accomplishments have been and what’s next.”
