We’re Keeping Connected During COVID-19: Focus on Bob Magner

Massachusetts is in the middle of Phase 2 of Governor Baker’s re-opening plan. Everyone is hopeful businesses will continue to open, COVID cases will lessen, and that Phase 3 will begin at the end of this month.  The weather has been beautiful and most students are done with school for the summer.  We’re committed to keeping connected to you during the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing our “We’re Connected” blogs.

People are working remotely and missing the interaction with co-workers. Tele-working and not being able to visit loved ones due to social distancing requirements, can leave people feeling isolated. One way to combat feelings of isolation, frustration, and anxiousness is to find shared connections with people.

We’re Connected during COVID-19! Even though we’re still physically separated, we’re experiencing many of the same things. Our “We’re Connected” blog highlights a different member of the McSweeney & Ricci team each week, and what they are experiencing through the COVID crisis. Keeping Connected during stressful times, is one of the ways we can get through this together!

It’s Week Seven of our blog and we’re featuring Account Manager, Bob Magner below!

We're Connected During COVID-19

Meet Bob Magner-

Account Manager for both Personal Lines and Commercial Lines (Business Accounts), Bob Magner has been working by himself from our office in Cohasset, Massachusetts everyday since the Coronavirus crisis hit. McSweeney & Ricci’s physical offices in Cohasset, Marshfield and Braintree are closed to the public (with necessary client meetings by appointment only). However, our entire team is working remotely to assist clients. Everyone except Bob! Bob lives in Scituate, minutes from our Cohasset office in on Rte. 3A. Bob has been staffing the Cohasset location on his own and has been able to facilitate many “touchless” Registry transactions for clients who would have otherwise had to wait days for a runner to complete the service for them or make an appointment to visit the RMV themselves.

  1. What has been the most challenging thing for you during the Corona pandemic? “The hardest thing is not having co workers to talk to or have lunch with and not being able to visit with the children at Boston Children’s Hospital on Sundays.” (Pre-COVID, Bob volunteered on the Infant Toddler Surgical Unit (10 East) at Boston Children’s Hospital every Sunday for over 25 years, and was given both a Presidential Citation and a Lifetime Service Award in recognition of his efforts.)
  2. What has been one thing that has been a positive thing you’ve experienced during the COVID crisis?  Bob jokingly replies, “Being able to dance around between calls,  my Jazzercise has peaked…I may even start instructing!”
  3. What is one tip that you would give people right now during this challenging time? “My only tip would be no matter where you are, or what you’re experiencing, hang in there, stay strong we will all get through this!”
