Scott Insurance has been named a Best Practices Agency for 2019, marking the 26th consecutive year the agency has been recognized for employing operational excellence and best practices in the insurance industry. Scott is one of only three independent agencies in the United States to receive the distinction each year since it was launched in 1993 by Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, Inc.
“We are honored to be recognized once again as a leader in our industry,” said Hutch Mauck, President of Scott Insurance. “Our ongoing commitment to remain focused on our core values has allowed us to consistently maintain this recognition over the last 26 years as a strong and sound business partner.”
Each year, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading independent 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. Selected agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year. The annual survey and study document the business practices of the selected agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
Founded in 1896, Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, Inc. is the nation’s oldest and largest national association of independent insurance agents and brokers, representing a network of more than 300,000 agents, brokers and their employees nationally.
