Meet Our Summer Intern
Christian Pieri of Camden, a senior at the University of Maine in Orono, is the summer intern at Allen Insurance and Financial.
Pieri, 22, is a 2008 graduate of Camden Hills Regional High School where he played basketball, baseball and lacrosse.
Pieri applied to the Allen Insurance and Financial internship program after attending a job fair in Orono, where he met a representative from Presque Isle-based MMG Insurance, one of Allen's business partners and decided he wanted to learn more about the role of insurance in finance, his area of study at UMO.
This summer, Pieri will spend time learning all aspects of Allen Insurance and Financial's business, including personal, business and health insurance and financial and retirement planning. Rick Bagnall, a voluntary benefits specialist at Allen Financial, is the company's internship coordinator.
"I believe the best way to learn is through experience, and I’m hoping my time here will be educational and rewarding," said Pieri. "I find insurance intriguing. I'm looking forward to learning how the professionalism and communication skills of employees at Allen Insurance and Financial affect the business they do every day."
Pieri's father is finance director at the Penobscot Bay YMCA in Rockport. His mother Lauren is a physician assistant. His younger brother Keegan just completed his freshman year at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. His sister Moira is a sophomore at Camden Hills.
Pieri plans to graduate from UMO in December and work for a few years before pursuing a master's degree in business administration.
