Meet Joel Tabin - Regional Sales Director at Midland National

“Life insurance is one of the most important components in someone’s financial plan, if not the most important. Many producers focus on other aspects and overlook this piece. We help financial professionals get focused on that critical component and understand how valuable life insurance can be for their practice as a new revenue stream.”
Joel Tabin and his team have served as regional partners for financial professionals in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the U.S. for the past 15 years. Being relationship driven, Joel has partnered with hundreds of financial professionals and helped them grow their life insurance business.
“I help financial professionals make more money from their existing clients. We can help them do well for themselves while doing good for their clients. We show them how they can add value and create a win for everybody.”
