PORTSMOUTH — Working only part-time at a Portsmouth insurance agency, a talented UNH business student now influences how the firm operates, allowing it to be more competitive, reflecting well on the quality of UNH students.

Alex Kaminski, 21, a student at UNH’s Whittemore School of Business & Economics, started working two years ago at Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance, a local independent agency serving customers in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont from its office at 40 Pleasant St.

“We initially hired him to help us out with marketing; however, over time we realized he was much more dynamic,” says PAI owner Jon Merwin, speaking about Kaminski. “He organized the agency in a way that we weren’t organized before.
