GAME ON! HOW A DIVISION 1 FOOTBALL PLAYER IS WINNING IN THE FIELD OF INSURANCE

Barry Goodrich smiles in conversation

Having drive is key to being successful in so many things and it’s propelled Barry Goodrich, MJ’s Vice President of Sales and Strategy in our Phoenix office, to many wins:

College football

Barry was a 3-year letterman and wide receiver for the University of Kansas. A first-year walk-on, he eventually earned a full scholarship.

Career launch

Barry parlayed his passion for sports into an internship at Nike’s world headquarters and with the San Diego Chargers.

Insurance

After just one year of experience in the insurance industry with another firm, Barry joined MJ and has never looked back. He soon became:

  • One of the youngest shareholders in MJ history after just three years of employment
  • A top salesperson almost every year and now manages one of the largest books of business at MJ
  • A member of the MJ Chairman’s Council, a group of MJ Consultants elected annually based upon meeting or exceeding sales goals
  • A valued and respected member of the team who now leads the Benefits Consulting department in our Arizona office

Barry describes MJ much as he might describe any winning team: “Nobody is above anyone—we check our egos and do what we can for each other. Everyone goes all-out for success by heading in the same direction with no one person carrying all the weight.”
