As a seasoned entrepreneur with an almost 20 year history in the insurance field, Krishen Iyer knows that communication and connection are still the key to success in any marketing venture. He graduated from San Diego State University in 2004, but actually began his career before that, with the founding of IHS Insurance in 2002. Since that beginning, Krishen Iyer has established, and lead, a number of insurance companies and become an expert at industry marketing strategies.
Still, when Iyer is asked about his techniques for implementing new ideas, he is quick to point out that, “the only way to make an idea come to life is communication.” Krishen Iyer values diverse input and multiple viewpoints on each concept.
This emphasis on connection and communication is, perhaps, a main key behind Krishen Iyer’s current venture, Managed Benefits Services, a Fresno-based company that specializes in managing lead generation and curating traffic for dental and health insurance companies. Through a unique, multi-layer platform, and cutting edge data analytics, Iyer seeks to bridge the gap between his insurance company clients and the marketing, and lead generation, solutions they need.
Iyer credits his own daily productivity to a constant drive to connect with a diverse range of people and through a determination to focus on the upcoming goals, rather than living in the past. Indeed, he sees communication as an important skill set that should be ever evolving for any successful business owner. Iyer’s curiosity and inquisitive nature have been noted by his colleagues.
As Iyer looks ahead to his future goals, and the constant refining his own communication skills, he also as a eye focused on the world around him. His noted philanthropic ventures focus on service to his local community. He also counts chess, and soccer among his hobbies, along with enjoying time with his family.
