Meet Our Team

Marc Ludwig

Being a Personal Financial Representative in South Jersey has put me in connection with many local families. Having this opportunity allows me to connect my knowledge and understanding of the needs of the people within the community to provide an outstanding level of service.

Throughout my 10+ years of experience, I have been able to help protect families with the things that are most important including your family, home, car and more along with preparing a strategy to help you achieve your financial goals.

I believe a big part of being in a community is giving back, which is why I take part in the Alcove Center for Grieving Children & Families, Community FoodBank of New Jersey Southern Branch, Atlantic City Rescue Mission, Operation Warm: Coats for Kids Foundation, Toys for Tots, and Relay for Life of South Jersey.

Amy Vanrell
Operations Manager

Born and raised in Somers Point, I have strong roots in maintaining the community. I started my insurance career in 2002 with an independent agent, and over the last 15 years have seen the market evolve continuously. I love being able to help people, especially closing on their home after insurance is purchased, helping to protect their family with life insurance or even saving them money on auto insurance.

I live with my family a few towns over from where I grew up, where I spend all of my free time with my kids. It’s great living where most people vacation, so we try to take advantage of the beaches and boardwalks every chance we get. In the summer, you can find me where the ocean meets the sand, and in the winter in Philly, traveling with my family – although my guilty pleasure all-year round is going out for delicious meals! I love the strong community I raise my family in and am excited to help it!

Lillian Martinez
Licensed Insurance Representative (Bilingual)

While I went to school for Criminal Justice, I went into the local casino industry after school. Two years ago, I was given the opportunity to change careers again, so I made the switch. I’m a bilingual licensed insurance representative who grew up in Atlantic City, New Jersey and currently hold a license in Property & Casualty and Life & Health. Being bilingual has opened up my opportunity to help the multicultural population we serve. What most excites me about my new career is that I can bring an understanding of insurance to my Spanish speaking clients.

I love my family and friends, and you’ll often hear me talking about my amazing kids in college. When I’m not at work, you can find me with my friends walking or dancing salsa. My friends and I even have a walking crew called, ‘Las Goya Divas’, who walks 5 or 6 days a week together. I am also really passionate about giving back to the community that helped raise me, which is why I volunteer at the AC Summer Basketball League every summer as a coach.

Jackie Vezza
Licensed Sales Producer

I have 30+ years in the insurance industry. I have handled P&C products, E&O, D&O, Crime and health products.

I take pride in helping people to understand the coverage’s they are purchasing and providing them with the proper protection they need.

Personally, I enjoy traveling and my favorite way to spend a weekend is at the Jersey Shore.


Scott Goodman
Office Manager

I began my career in the insurance industry over 21 years ago with a strong personal belief in protecting life and property. While a lot has changed over my career, my core belief in helping those who seek the protection for what matters most has not.

I was born and raised in Northfield, New Jersey and stayed here with my family because of the high values of the community along with the great educational system. When I’m not at work, I’m with or talking about my wife and kids or the weather (especially snow). I have also been an active officer with our local fire department for over 19 years.

Laura Banks
Licensed Insurance Representative

My story of joining the insurance industry is not so typical. I was born in Passaic, but grew up in Clifton, New Jersey, focusing on my music. I attended Montclair State University for a BA in Music Education as I am a classically trained flutist, but discovered teaching in public schools was not for me. I found that I could take the teaching training obtained in school and apply it to insurance. I love the opportunity to educate consumers and hopefully inspire them to see the importance of adequate coverage!

My love of education is surpassed only by my passion for music; more specifically Renaissance, French and 20th Century/Contemporary flute repertoire. I own a vintage 1962 Haynes
French style flute, otherwise known as ‘my baby’, and I also play piccolo, clarinet, saxophone, rudimentary piano and I sing. If I’m not working, I can typically be found at home with my husband and guinea pigs, on the beach, up in North Jersey with family and friends or at Disney World.

I’m really passionate about HORC (Historic Organ Restoration Committee) and JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and would love to see how we can help them make a difference!

Shelby Klein
Licensed Insurance Representative

I’ve always been a local. I went to Absegami High School, Atlantic County Vocational School and then Atlantic Cape Community College. My experience in the insurance industry is focused on claims handling and customer relations, which I use to help with the Property, Casualty, and Life side of the industry. My favorite part of my job is when an insured individual becomes comfortable enough to start asking questions and I get to explain what their coverages are.

When I’m not in the office, I’m usually in the kitchen baking and coming up with something for my co-workers to try, or with my daughter! I also participate in breast cancer walks, MDA telethons and community food bank events.

Sharon LaPollo
Office Manager

I grew up in Lindenwold and joined the insurance industry in 2006. I love working with customers and providing them with outstanding customer service! I also really enjoy our staff and helping them to be the best they can be!

When I’m not in the office you can find me at my summer home in Cape May, crabbing and relaxing. I was also a ballerina for 20 years while growing up and still enjoy watching it and taking classes. A fun fact is that I also received my certification in medical transcription in 2006!

While I’m not particularly involved with any particular non-profit, anything that helps the community always piques my interest!

Alan Warren
Licensed Insurance Representative

I’m a Stephan F. Austin State University alumni and while I’m proud of my Texas roots, I moved to New Jersey in 1989. I’ve spent 10 years working with auto, home, life, and health in the insurance markets. My favorite part of my job is the interaction with our clients and working to win as a team.

What gets me up in the morning is embracing new challenges I know are coming my way, and spending time with family (no matter what event we have planned). When I’m not at work you can find me outdoors. During the summer, I’m usually working in the yard and throughout winter I’m normally bundled up somewhere. I am also a proud supporter of South Jersey Food Bank because no one should go without a healthy meal.

Megan Negron
Licensed Insurance Representative

I joined the Ludwig Financial Group family in May of 2014. I grew up in Winslow Township, New Jersey and graduated Winslow Township High School in 2002.

My favorite part of my job is protecting clients and figuring out their insurance needs. When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending all my time with my children.

Fred Abrams
Personal Financial Representative

I grew up in Philadelphia but found myself relocating to Jersey. My experience in the insurance industry is based around partnering with financial advisors to assist them with identifying and providing insurance-based solutions to their clients. Knowing that I’m helping families and businesses plan and continue to grow are what makes me love my job.

I’ve taught several workshop-type courses to help excel advisor groups with insurance planning growth, which I enjoy, but my favorite past-times are spending time with my grandkids and playing baseball.
