TWFG Expanding From Coast-to-Coast

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Woodlands Financial Group (TWFG), already listed high among the Top 100 privately-held independent P/C insurance agencies in the nation, is announcing substantial expansion of its network. Gordy Bunch, president and CEO of the retail and wholesale general agency, recently concluded training classes at TWFG headquarters in The Woodlands, Texas for new branches located from California to Virginia.

Bunch notes that many of the new branch managers are former "captive agents," who are joining TWFG as a result of new programs that offer splits ranging as high as 80/20 for full service branch owners. The company is also offering a "Managing General Agent" and "Referral Program" as options, along with "Sales Only" branches with a 60/40 split.

The 40-year-old entrepreneur said this summer's addition of more than 200 agents brings TWFG's insurance services consortium of privately-owned and affiliated branches to 285 retail branches in 20 states and 2,200 independent agents in 38 states. TWFG writes policies in 49 states from its headquarters in The Woodlands, TX. TWFG appears on the current "Top 100" list in the number 51 position – a jump of 16 spots in the rankings, reflecting a 31% increase in P/C premiums over 2010. Sales in 2011 grew from $159 million to more than $208 million. Last year, TWFG was also ranked number 15 in Personal Lines sales. New branches list follows:
