Salvatore 'Torre' Nigro joins Broker Source as president

(LEAWOOD, KS, February 1, 2013) – Broker Source is pleased to announce that Salvatore “Torre” Nigro, formerly Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City senior vice president, has joined the company as its president. Nigro most recently served as president of Cobalt Ventures, a for-profit Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City subsidiary.

“We are so fortunate that Torre has joined Broker Source in a key management and leadership role,” said Mary Amundsen, Broker Source chief executive officer. “Broker Source intends to expand its product and service offerings to allow independent brokers to maintain their competitive position in an era of health care reform,” said Amundsen. “Torre’s expertise in small group and consumer markets along with his personal relationship with hundreds of brokers is a formula for success.”

Nigro’s initial focus is to provide the strategic tools and resources brokers need to grow their business. “Health care reform will change the way our industry does business,” said Nigro. “We intend to offer our brokers the technology platforms and decision making tools their clients will need when purchasing health insurance. Coupled with the other products and services we have available through Broker Source, we can ensure the independent broker is a strong competitor in 2014 and beyond.”

Nigro, a lifelong Kansas City resident and civic leader, earned a bachelor’s in business management from Rockhurst University and is a graduate of Rockhurst’s Executive Fellowship Program, where he received a master’s in business.

Broker Source is a general agency representing brokers in the Kansas City and surrounding areas. Its offices are located in Leawood, Kan. The company was founded in 2003.
