Amanda Stricos
Account Manager, Commercial Lines

What do you like best about being a part of the Dwight Rudd team?
I love what a great team we are at Dwight Rudd. We take care of each other and work together in order to succeed on all bases. We focus on warmth and accountability within our agency which allows us to both highly prioritize client needs as well as our own. Each day we grow as a business, individuals and a highly respectable firm.

What do you love to do outside of work?
I am all about those closest to me. My husband, Andrew, and our two small twin children, Jack and Scarlett, are my entire world.  I come from a large Italian family and have been brought up to value tradition and caring for others.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and traveling to our beach home in Maine.

What are you passionate about personally?
One of my largest personal successes and accomplishments is being a member of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America Board of Directors. My husband has suffered with Huntington’s Disease for the past six years, and I am very proud of being such a strong supporter and to have raised over $50,000 in the past three years for research and advocacy.

What qualities do you possess that make you successful in your role?
I possess a realistic and striving vision of how I want to succeed both at work and as an individual. I trust my knowledge of the insurance industry and put my abilities into action by providing my clients with the best possible service and programs to meet their needs. I strongly believe in using feedback from my peers as an opportunity for improvement and constant growth. “Make excellence the goal in everything that you do. Be the best. If you aren’t the smartest, be the one who tries the hardest.”
