CHICAGO, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The insurance industry continues to offer opportunities for career stability, growth and reward. In fact, the Insurance Information Institute has indicated that employment of both insurance brokers and sales agents is expected to grow 9% by the year 2024.
Aligned with the industry growth, Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, is announcing plans to hire 1,600 more sales agents throughout the country by the end of 2017.
"Combined Insurance is growing and we have aggressive goals to further expand our existing salesforce to better serve consumers with the insurance coverage they need," said Doug Abercrombie, Senior Vice President and Chief Agency Officer at Combined Insurance. Abercrombie started with Combined as a sales agent more than 30 years ago and worked his way up to the top sales leadership position within the company, overseeing the entire U.S. Combined Insurance salesforce.
"Healthcare costs continue to rise and more consumers than ever need the added protection of supplemental health and accident insurance to help cover unexpected expenses," Abercrombie added. "As a result, we have an opportunity to hire more sales agents to work with those individuals and offer them products that will help them with those costs. This is a terrific sales career opportunity with a solid, established company for someone willing to work hard while making a difference in the lives of their customers."
Combined Insurance was founded in Chicago in 1922 by W. Clement Stone. With $100, a positive spirit and a vision to make the world a better place, Stone developed and grew the company into what it is today—still headquartered in Chicago with sales agents and managers throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
Known for its best-in-class sales training and onboarding for new agents, Combined's sales agent careers offer unlimited income potential and a total compensation package for full-time employees that includes benefits, a 401k retirement savings plan and a discounted stock purchase plan.
Combined Insurance has received numerous accolades for its military-veteran friendly hiring efforts and recently announced plans to hire 2,000 more veterans by the end of 2019. In addition, the company was recognized by Hispanic Network Magazine as a Top Diversity Employer.
