(Atlanta, Georgia) - Sahouri Insurance has been selected to join an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the U.S. participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers (IIABA) Best Practices Study Group.
Only 282 independent agencies nationwide are qualified for inclusion in the 2022 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 2,600 agencies were nominated this year.
Innovation Pays Off
This honor comes soon after we announced the implementation of transformational change at Sahouri Insurance and is a testament to the strength of our relationships with clients, carriers, and business partners.
This achievement also speaks to the integrity and quality of the insurance Advocates that power our business - who implement our consulting practices every day to deliver exceptional client experiences.
The transformational changes have yielded measurable, positive impacts on all aspects of our organization, and further our contribution to the insurance industry as leaders in management practices, risk consulting, and technology utilization.
