Workers Compensation Farewells Carmen

Carmen [Square] The workers compensation industry has a significant departure this month with our wonderful Carmen Sherry deciding to retire. Carmen has been in the industry for over 40 years having worked in a variety of specialist roles with MMI, Allianz, Suncorp GIO, Employers Mutual and most recently ABILITY GROUP. Julie remembers clearly her first interview at age 17 with Carmen and from that date on Carmen was instrumental in shaping Julie’s career, workers compensation expertise and transition to business owner.
