Overall the company signed 40 new members during the month of March
The Hampton-based Strategic Insurance Agency Alliance has signed 40 new member agencies in March, including the alliance’s 4500th signed member. SIAA Chairman and CEO Jim Masiello chalks up SIAA’s continuing growth to the services that his alliance are able to offer agencies.
“Agencies that see value in development & education, access to program and specialty markets, marketing assistance (including lead generation), automation discounts, and more recognize SIAA as the total solution to the challenge of agency success. We’ve spent three decades getting it right and our new member agencies reap the benefits. Established small to mid-sized agencies as well as captive agents looking to break free and open their own independent agency continue to recognize the value of access to major reputable carriers and the agency development resources that SIAA membership provides. Over the past thirty years we have developed a model that works regardless of the economic climate, signing over 4500 members along the way.”
Two of the newest agencies that have joined SIAA hail from Massachusetts. They are T A Sullivan Insurance of Methuen and First Insurance Services of Peabody. SIAA says that in 2012 alone, its member created more than $680 million in new premium growth with a total of 435 new member agencies having joined in 2012. The Alliance says that this is its fourth consecutive year in signing 400 plus members and that it is on track to continue its streak in 2013.
