Scott Insurance is proud to be 100% employee owned by 315+ employee owners.

In 1975, Scott became one of the first companies in the country to establish an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). At the time, the ESOP concept was just beginning to be recognized by the U.S. government and our company leadership had the insight and vision to transition Scott to an employee-owned company structure. This bold move set us on a path to experience steady growth and strong results.

Today, we are proud to be 100% employee owned. This ownership structure creates many opportunities and benefits for our company, our 315+ employees and our clients.

The Benefits of Being Employee Owned

The primary benefit of being an ESOP is that it has allowed us to maintain our independence. In fact, we are one of the largest independent agencies in the Southeast region. Unlike many other companies our size that are privately owned or closely held, Scott’s ownership is very diverse and therefore we do not face the same obstacles when owners retire or separate from the company.

Of course, for our employee owners, the ESOP creates significant benefits. Participants in our ESOP experience a top-notch, high-performing retirement savings plan. This allows every employee at Scott to reap the financial rewards of ownership that are typically limited to a select few individuals at most companies.

In addition to the financial benefits of our ESOP, our employee ownership structure has driven and nurtured a unique culture that encourages, empowers and invests in our employee owners.

Our Employee Ownership Culture Impacts Our Clients

As an employee-owned company, Scott is uniquely positioned to deliver the highest quality of service. Having an owner mindset, everyone who works on our team – from the front desk to the executive offices – has a vested interest in our work for our clients. We understand that when our clients succeed, we succeed.
