“Gillman Insurance problem Solvers– Local Agency Included In IIABA’s Best Practices Study

Alpharetta, Georgia, September 1st, 2016 – GILLMAN INSURANCE is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.

Each year since 1993, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading 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. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year.

“Our focus at Gillman Insurance Problem Solvers is different from your general insurance agency.We aren’t called Problem Solvers because it sounds cool. We value the importance of asking questions, solving problems and building relationships with our clients. The end result is that we take care of our insureds, carrier partners and problem-solving employees,” says Ed Gillman, Lead Problem Solver at Gillman Insurance.

More than 1,800 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 254 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.

The agency was nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.

The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the highest performing agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.

The Gillman Insurance agency was founded in 1993 and can offer insurance products from a number of different companies including Travelers, Liberty Mutual, and State Auto!
