September 08, 2016

RENO, Nev. – Sept. 8, 2016 – LP Insurance Services, Inc. is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States that participated in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.

Each year IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, jointly study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue groups. The named agencies are 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. 

“We are extremely proud of our Best Practices Agency designation,” said Nick Rossi, President of LP Insurance Services, Inc. “To be a part of this elite group is an honor.”

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 brokerages must be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue groups. LP Insurance and the other top performers were all nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on operational excellence.

“LP Insurance strives to be recognized and respected as the foremost brokerage in the western U.S.,” said Joe Wyatt, Chief Operating Officer at LP Insurance Services. “This accolade is another way we’re serving our clients – by being the best in the business.”

The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993. 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.

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 as well as employee benefit plans and retirement products.  Web address: www.independentagents.com.
