John Quinlan, CAPI, CPRIA

Shareholder, Managing Director - Risk Management


John Quinlan worked for over twenty years for an insurance company managing complex accounts in the high-end personal insurance field. He learned over the years that the importance of proper insurance can be and often is underestimated. John enjoyed building relationships with insurance agents but missed the contact with the customer. He desired to provide advice and guidance. When John came to Meristem in 2008, he realized that he had found the consultative environment he was looking for. Working alongside families, he educates them on insurance products and the processes involved with purchasing them.

John is married to his college sweetheart. Together, they love to travel and explore new places.
