The surety business is second nature to Margie. She began her career in 1987, working for a surety bond-only agency before joining a small surety and, later, a Managing General Agency through which she opened her own branch office. A few years later she transitioned to a leading surety company, Reliance/Travelers, where she worked with contractors whose annual revenues went from $1MM to $100MM. Margie’s unique career path has provided her with a strong working knowledge of both the agency and company side of the business. She joined Guignard in 2002, bringing with her a deep understanding of the construction scope, her analytical skills honed through years in the industry, and a dedication to client service.
A Florida native, Margie enjoys assisting contractors in projects of all sizes as they expand, buy, and sell their businesses. She is driven to deliver the best possible experience for her clients and ensures she is delivering the most current information possible through remaining an active member in many of the industry’s trade organizations, often serving as a speaker herself.
