Andy N. Siegel, CPCU, CIC, AAI and President of Siegel Insurance, grew up in Atlanta. He joined the family business in 1985 upon earning his BBA in Risk Management and Insurance from the University of Georgia and his MBA in Insurance from The College of Insurance in New York. A Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), and Accredited Advisor in Insurance (AAI), Andy belongs to the following professional organizations:
His executive and board appointments include:
Volunteering on behalf of Atlanta’s Jewish community, Andy has served on the board of Jewish Vocational Services, which merged with Jewish Family Services in 1995, and he remained as an officer during the year the two organizations combined. Over the past 20 years, Andy has also assisted Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta with their annual fundraising campaign. He has further served on the board of Ahavath Achim Synagogue since 2004, and has co-chaired the Greenfield Hebrew Academy golf outing for the past three years.
Adele Siegel Glasser, an Accredited Advisor of Insurance (AAI), was recruited into the family insurance business by her father Jerry, who convinced her that it would be a great career when she had a family. At the time, thinking that far ahead with no interesting dating prospects required a leap of faith, but it was a wise one. Adele naturally settled into her role of helping people identify their needs, determine the proper coverage, and explain their insurance programs.
Twenty years later, Adele can say without question that she loves the business, and her work as an insurance agent is most gratifying when clients are compensated for their losses. Those relationships are reciprocal. When she underwent treatment for breast cancer, her ability to focus on her clients, who were so lovingly supportive of her, made a world of difference in her recovery.
Adele launched her sales career at the tender age of six, when she peddled Passover candy, magazines subscriptions, and raffle tickets to fundraise for her school, Greenfield Hebrew Academy. Thanks to her persuasive charms, the Siegel family always ranked as one of the top-selling families. Her interpersonal skills, coupled with an eye for design and organization, proved to be assets in her first job out of college, which was selling and designing upscale closet systems. (To this day, her friends ask Adele to redesign their closets!) Before choosing the insurance industry, she also sold mailing lists.
While a business career beckoned her, Adele realized that communicating well and understanding people would provide a solid foundation, so she majored in Mass Communications and PR with a minor in Psychology at Boston University. Graduating as a Scarlet Key Recipient for outstanding leadership, she served two years as a Resident Assistant for international students and also represented the school as a President’s Host, giving tours to prospective students and parents.
Upon returning to Atlanta, Adele became immersed in work and volunteerism, which culminated in her serving as Co-Chair of the Atlanta Jewish Federation's Young Leadership Council. She became the youngest recipient of the Abe Schwartz Community Young Leadership Award and was a member of Outstanding Atlanta's Class of ‘96.
Although she does not have nearly as much spare time as her dad once implied she would, Adele most enjoys spending it with her three children and loving husband.
Sheldon Berch, Account Executive, entered the insurance industry in 1991. A business school graduate of the University of Alabama, he is an Atlanta native with lifelong ties to the Siegel family; in fact, Sheldon’s mother Lois is the one who introduced Jerry and Bootsie Siegel! He specialized in life and disability insurance before joining Siegel Insurance in 2009, but now has added property and casualty to his resume. As an independent agent, Sheldon determines his client’s needs and goals to find the companies that best match his customers’ requirements. He also like connecting people to others to help their businesses. He loves what he does for others.
Sheldon’s professional affiliations and leadership include the following:
As a past Vice President of Etz Chaim Congregation and current President of the North Atlanta Men’s Jewish Bowling League, Sheldon enjoys a variety of activities, including bowling, basketball, networking, Operation Boot Camp, University of Alabama football, movies, and, especially family time. Along with his wife Linda, they have 3 sons and 1 daughter and love their “Labor Day Shaving Cream Fights” (involving the backyard trampoline and multiple cans of shaving cream - ask him about it), a favorite family tradition. Sheldon lives by the phrase "take care of the clients".
