AHT Insurance Included in IIABA’s Best Practices Study
Leesburg, VA August 27, 2019 – AHT Insurance has been selected to be part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.
Only 267 independent agencies throughout the U.S. qualified for inclusion in the 2019 Best Practices Study. An IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company must first nominate the agency, which then must qualify based on outstanding customer retention, growth, stability and financial management. More than 1,300 agencies were nominated this year.
“We are honored to once again be named an IIABA Best Practices Agency, a recognition made possible by the heroic efforts put forth every day from AHT’s team of professionals,” says David Schaefer, AHT Insurance President and CEO.
The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual study of leading independent insurance agencies, which is conducted for IIABA by Reagan Consulting of Atlanta, Ga., documents the business practices of these high-performance agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
Hundreds of workshops and seminars have been conducted at various producer association functions, company sponsored agency meetings and national automation users group conventions.
The IIABA and Reagan Consulting jointly maintain the Best Practices Gateway website (http://www.reaganconsulting.com/research/best-practices) that provides executive summaries of the annual Best Practices Studies, the Best Practices Study Comparison Workbook tool and ordering information for Best Practices products. The Gateway, as well as the annual study, is made possible in part through the financial sponsorship of various insurance companies and industry organizations.
The 2019 Best Practices Study sponsors include: Agency Business Solutions and Amerisure, Applied, Beyond Insurance, Central Insurance Companies, Chubb, EMC Insurance, The Hanover Insurance Group, The Hartford, Imperial PFS, InsurBanc, Liberty Mutual Insurance and Safeco Insurance, MetLife, Nationwide, Travelers, Vertafore and Westfield Insurance.
AHT Insurance is a full-service brokerage and consulting firm offering property and casualty, employee benefits, retirement, personal and international services for a wide range of industries – notably receiving national recognition for our practices in areas including technology, manufacturing, government contracting and nonprofits.
