What a great time I had in San Antonio the week before last at NetVU—catching up with old friends and meeting new agents and carriers.
As always, I was busy capturing as much Insight as possible from independent agents about their working relationships with carrier partners. And, as always, they were free with their opinions, feedback and advice. My findings from this trip will be added to our ever-growing volume of Agent Insight, the most recent example of which is our new eBook, A P&C Carrier Guide to Boosting Agent Loyalty.
It was also very exciting to see some of our amazing customers being recognized for their great work with their agencies. Congratulations to Selective Insurance for earning NetVU’s Automation Excellence Award for a Regional Carrier, which annually recognizes a carrier that goes above and beyond to make it easier for agencies to do business. Kudos also to The Hanover Insurance Company for its receipt of NetVU’s 2016 Automation Excellence Award for a National Carrier. Both of these carriers’ ongoing dedication to the independent agency channel; industry groups like ACORD, ACT and AUGIE; and advancements in agency automation solutions make them highly deserving of these awards.
Congratulations also to Jim Rogers of The Hartford for his receipt of the Wade S. Dunbar Jr. Award, which annually recognizes an industry professional who demonstrates high principles while striving for industry-wide streamline and solutions.
NetVU is just one of several conferences we will be attending this year in pursuit of Agent Insight. Stay tuned to www.powertotheagents.com for the latest!
