Coventry Resident Inducted into the Signator Investors, Inc. ‘Hall of Fame’

Karl Green recognized for long standing commitment to integrity and excellence in customer service in financial services

BOSTON, MA - July 22, 2015 – Coventry resident Karl W. Green of Independence Financial Partners, was recently inducted into the Signator Investors, Inc.  Hall of Fame. Since the inception of the Hall of Fame in 1956, fewer than 250 financial representatives have joined the elite group.  The main criterion for being tapped for the honor is earning the company’s ACE (Achieving Client Excellence) award at least 15 times.

Each year, only a select number of representatives receive the ACE award, which highlights client excellence, personal ethics and integrity, and the ability to solve clients’ financial needs.  

“To be inducted into Signator’s Hall of Fame, financial representatives must have proven their commitment to providing exceptional client service throughout their careers,” explained Brian Heapps, CLU®, ChFC®, president. “We look to our ‘Hall of Famers’ to be role models in our business based on a foundation of integrity and service. It’s a great pleasure to welcome Karl as one of our newest inductees.”
