CLEARWATER, FL, October 2016 – Strategic Insurance Services, now celebrating 10 years in business, is 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.
Each year since 1993, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year.
Out of 35,000 independent agencies nationwide, only 254 independent agencies throughout the U.S. qualified for inclusion in the 2016 Best Practices Study. In Florida, only 10 agencies were chosen, with Strategic Insurance Services being one of them. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories. More than 1,800 agencies were nominated this year.
“We are proud to be part of this Best Practices Study. We know our values of integrity and excellence in serving our clients and our community has translated into our success as an agency. We feel honored to qualify for this group,” says Doug Levi, Strategic Insurance Services, Principal Agent.”
The agency was nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.
The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the highest performing agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
Strategic Insurance Services was founded in 2006 and offers multiple insurance products including, homeowners and flood, automobile, business, life and health insurance among others.
