Progressive increases commitment to provide Big “I” member agents access to marketing resources, programs and other materials designed to drive new business growth

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., April 11, 2018—TrustedChoice.com, an insurtech company that develops digital solutions for the independent insurance channel, today announced Progressive Insurance has increased its commitment to provide Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (Big “I”) members access to marketing resources, programs and other materials designed to drive new business growth.

As the fourth largest auto insurer in the country, Progressive provides insurance shoppers access to a national network of more than 35,000 independent insurance agents and brokers who can tailor solutions to their needs and work on their behalf. Progressive’s newest commitment will enable Big “I” members that have an agency relationship with Progressive to better connect with consumers by providing greater access to TrustedChoice.com’s programs and resources and enhanced visibility to the website’s more than 450,000 monthly insurance shoppers.

“Since selling our first auto policy through independent agents more than 80 years ago, we’ve become the #1 private passenger and commercial auto carrier for independent agents, measured by written premium, by investing in the technologies and tools that are critical for agent success,” said Karen Bailo, Progressive general manager of agency distribution. “We’re excited to expand our participation in TrustedChoice.com through additional co-op and platform sponsorship as part of a broader investment in our agency business at a time of deepening partnership with and unprecedented growth through independent agents.”

As insurers look for unique ways to foster and deepen relationships with agents and consumers, TrustedChoice.com solutions offer them visibility with both. “From agency programs that drive revenue to welcoming President and CEO Tricia Griffith as a dynamic panelist at Agency Nation’s upcoming Elevate unconference, Progressive continues to drive agent innovation. As our collaboration with Progressive continues to evolve, we’re excited about all the avenues we’re building to support the success of their agents,” said Ryan Hanley, TrustedChoice.com chief marketing officer.

Commenting on Progressive’s new commitment, TrustedChoice.com Chief Executive Officer Chip Bacciocco adds, “While we are a relatively new kid on the insurtech block and Progressive’s track record of supporting Big “I” agents is long-established, our commitment to championing the independent insurance channel is shared. We couldn’t be more pleased to see Progressive expand their agency program from funding agent participation on TrustedChoice.com to broader platform sponsorship to drive additional commercial and personal lines referral traffic, positioning agents to compete in a rapidly evolving marketplace.”
