Dallas, Texas – Swingle Collins & Associates has been selected for the 18th year to be 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.
Only 217 independent agencies throughout the U.S. qualified for inclusion in the 2015 Best Practices Study. An IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company must first nominate the agency which then must qualify based on outstanding customer retention, growth, stability and financial management. More than 1,100 were nominated this year, making this year’s honor all the more prestigious.
The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual study of leading independent insurance agencies, which is conducted for IIABA by Reagan Consulting of Atlanta, Ga., documents the business practices of these “best” agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices. Being the recipient of the IIABA’s Best Practices award for nearly 20 years is a testament to the Swingle, Collins & Associates commitment to excellence as well as consistency in service as the agency has grown from a 5 man shop to having over 70 employees since 1982.
Founded in 1896, IIABA 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. Its members are businesses that offer customers a choice of policies from a variety of insurance companies. Independent agents and brokers offer all lines of insurance – property, casualty, life and health—as well as employee benefit plans and retirement precuts.
Since 1982 Swingle, Collins & Associates has insured the finest businesses and families in Dallas. In that time, we have built a reputation as a trusted source for both quality Personal Insurance and Commercial Insurance. Swingle Collins & Associates is committed to North Texas businesses and families and poised to continue to provide the best home and auto insurance solutions to insurance clients. Our agents are among the most highly respected personal risk managers in the business – and being named as a “Best Practices” Agency by IIABA is an accolade that our team is honored to receive.
