Renaissance Alliance grows with 7 new independent insurance agencies in CT, MA, NH
Renaissance Alliance Insurance Services, a gold standard coalition of forward-thinking industry leaders, created by agents for agents, announces the addition of 7 new member agencies. All are full service agencies located in three New England states.
- Centurion Insurance Group, West Lebanon, NH
- Click Insurance, Watertown, MA
- Foti Insurance Agency, Cambridge, MA
- Gary Blaustein Associates, Stamford, CT
- Hackwell Boone Insurance Agency, Inc., South Easton, MA
- Paradiso Financial & Insurance Services, LLC, Stafford Springs, CT
- Prindle Insurance Agency, Sharon, CT
With the addition of these members, Renaissance Alliance aggregate premiums now top $532 million.
President Bruce Cochrane observed, "Renaissance Alliance qualifications for membership are uniquely defined and purposeful. Sustained profitability, a passion for growth, demonstrated quality of customer service, and forward-thinking agency leadership are the core strength of our coalition and requirement for all new members.” Cochrane further notes that the addition of highly successful agencies drives greater value to all current member agencies, as well as to the customers that those agencies serve.
Cochrane explains that in recent years, many independent agencies have gravitated to agency clusters, aggregations or groupings that merely increase access to insurance markets and profit sharing. He points out that simply sharing market and profit sharing are no longer sufficient for agencies to thrive and remain relevant amid industry disruptions.
“Renaissance Alliance is a one-of-its-kind organization,” states Cochrane. “With access to numerous markets and profit sharing significantly beyond that achievable as stand-alone agencies, Renaissance Alliance members also enjoy an extensive suite of cutting-edge services designed to nurture growth and maximize agency revenues.” These include backroom services to reduce the burden of non-sales generating overhead expenses; training and technology services; access to affiliated industry experts; data analytics; sales and marketing support; and much more. “Members retain full agency ownership and 100% independence,” says Cochrane, “but they gain the infrastructure for unlimited growth.”
