Companies

Below are a few of the companies we represent.


 


Progressive Insurance
On March 10, 1937, Joseph Lewis and Jack Green started Progressive Mutual Insurance Company because they wanted to provide vehicle owners with security and protection. They also thought it was a good investment for a couple of lawyers who were just getting started.

Progressive was innovative from the start. For the first time, customers could pay their premiums in installments, an option that appealed to workers who could not afford annual premiums. They could even get drive-in claims service. Progressive wanted to make it easy for average people to protect one of their most important investments -- their vehicles.

In 1987, Progressive surpassed $1 billion in premiums and the company’s stock was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:PGR). Progressive didn’t become the country’s fourth largest insurance company by doing business the way other companies did. The company set a new standard for customer service with the introduction of a full range of personal auto insurance products and Immediate Response® claims service that was available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Progressive changed its focus from nonstandard insurance in 1993, offering its products to all drivers. The company surpassed $2 billion in premiums.


Liberty Mutual

 Since 1912, we at Liberty Mutual Insurance have committed ourselves to providing broad, useful and competitively-priced insurance products and services to meet our customers' ever-changing needs.


Our delivery on this commitment is the reason we're now the third largest property and casualty insurer in the U.S. based on 2012 direct premium written according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

 


Metropolitan Life Insurance Company
The origins of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife) go back to 1863, when a group of New York City businessmen raised $100,000 to found the National Union Life and Limb Insurance Company.

The new company insured Civil War sailors and soldiers against disabilities due to wartime wounds, accidents, and sickness. In 1868, after several reorganizations and five difficult years, the company decided to focus on the life insurance business. A new company was chartered to sell "ordinary" insurance to the middle class. The founders chose the name because they had been most successful in New York City, or the "Metropolitan" District.
This new venture also faced difficulties. A severe business depression that began in the early 1870s rapidly put half of the 70 life insurance companies operating in New York State out of business. Only very large, long-established ordinary life insurance companies remained strong. Policy lapses over successive years forced the company to contract until it reached its lowest point in the late 1870s.

In 1879, MetLife President Joseph F. Knapp turned his attention to England, where "industrial" or "workingmen's" insurance programs were widely successful. American companies had not bothered to pursue industrial insurance up to that time because of the expense involved in building and sustaining an agency force to sell policies door to door and to make the weekly collection of five- or ten-cent premiums.

By importing English agents to train an American agency force, MetLife quickly transferred successful British methods for use in the United States. By 1880, the company was signing up 700 new industrial policies a day. Rapidly increasing volume quickly drove down distribution costs, and the new program proved immediately successful.

The MetLife agent became an important person in the lives of these striving families. Manuals instructed agents to call at a home at the same time each week to ensure familiarity and contact. In the process of collecting premiums, insurance agents listened to the problems, concerns, and hopes of their clients. So successful was this approach that by 1909, MetLife became the nation's largest life insurer in terms of insurance in force, a leadership position we continue to hold today in North America.


 

People driving in rural areas -- where there is less traffic -- have fewer accidents than drivers in urban areas. This simple fact led our founders to form Grange Insurance in 1935. Today we offer a wide range of insurance products, not only for your vehicles but also to protect your home and business. Grange also provides security through life insurance and other financial products.

The agent-client relationship is an important part of what Grange Insurance offers you. It has been important to us from the very beginning, when agents knew their customers as friends and neighbors and often sold policies at a kitchen table over a warm cup of coffee. So when we choose our agents, we focus on finding men and women who are committed to building a solid relationship with customers.
