We are a 55 year old agency with offices in New York and Florida. New ownership took control three years ago as a turnaround project. Significant progress has been made but it's still early enough to consider it an opportunity to work for a "55 year old startup". We are making a lot of investments in technology, both to improve internal workflows as well as to potentially capture certain types of business online, but we are also focusing on building the relationship side of the business, ensuring that we maintain a human touch
We are interested in both personal lines and commercial lines producers.
For personal lines, we are split between two groups - a more transactional practice focused on high volumes and a lower average premium. And a relatively new private client group which takes a more advisory level approach with larger accounts.
We are considering personal lines producers for both groups.
For commercial lines, we also have a similar breakdown between transactional and advisory focuses. Our Business Unit group focuses on small accounts, which can range from $800 monoline deals to $15,000 well-rounded but transactional accounts. Our Commercial Services group focuses on larger average premiums - although as long as the account fits the producer's specialization, we generally approve even $3,000 premium accounts to be allocated to their book.
For commercial lines producers, our preference is to bring on a commercial services specialist with an existing specialization or deep familiarity with a specific class. Our vision is to help the producer cultivate - by investment and strategic support - their focus into a standalone practice within the agency for which the producer can eventually increase their managerial and strategic responsibilities.
