This week’s “C” word is Competitor. In the C You In The Major Leagues vernacular, Competitor means someone who has a desire and ability to compete, has high expectations, is tough minded, and brings out the best in those around him or her. And this week’s guest certainly fits that.
Jenny Housley is the Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Blue KC. She oversees the Medicare, Small Group, Mid-Market and Large Group sales teams, the sales operations team, commercial product development and customer experience. She is responsible for the retention of key customers and strategic oversight of the company’s new business development.
Before joining Blue KC, she held multiple leadership roles at Lockton Companies including Executive Vice President, Producer where she was responsible for new business acquisition and retention of existing clients.
She was recognized as one of Business Insurance Magazine’s, “Women to Watch” in 2009, and in 2021 she was one of the Women Who Mean Business selections by the Kansas City Business Journal.
She is active in the Kansas City community with organizations ranging from Starlight Theater to the Greater Kansas City YMCA.
And she happens to be a longtime friend of C-10 host Matt Fulks, which makes this a unique episode.
Housley talks about that word Competitor and how it’s helped her as a leader, why she shifted from one strong KC company to another, she takes a swing at our pregame batting practice, and much more.
