Newcastle business ranks in top one percent worldwide
David Chick, Newcastle’s local New York Life agent, continues to top the global company’s leaderboard, as the company announced last month that he had finished the fiscal year in the top one percent of New York Life Agents worldwide. Of the 15,000 agents situated around the globe, Chick has excelled into the top 200, and some believe the fact that Chick has facilitated his business outside of his downtown Newcastle office makes the feat all the more impressive.
Many might think a small Wyoming town would not provide an optimal business location for a New York Life office, but Chick gladly accepted the challenge. His wife, Tina, is from Newcastle, though Chick himself is not a native of the area. As such, he said moving to Newcastle made networking and involvement in the community essential to kick starting his business. Now, after ten years of work in the area, Chick sees small town life as a benefit, and attributes a majority of his business to referrals and positive word of mouth within the community.
