CLEVELAND, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Embrace Pet Insurance celebrates the 10th anniversary of its first policy sale, October 10, 2006. From a two person start up to six-time winner for top workplace talent, Embrace insures more than 77,000 pets and countless pet parents in the United States.
In May 2003, co-founders Laura Bennett and Alex Krooglik were part of the winning team for the Wharton Business Plan Competition, beating out technology and biotechnology companies. Over the next three years, they secured funding and refined plans launching Embrace, which has become an established industry leader that prides itself on making the needs of pet parents a priority.
"When I look back on the 10 years we've been selling policies, I'm struck by how we've grown from two people to nearly 100, that work every day to improve the quality of pets' lives," says Laura Bennett, Co-Founder and Chief Embracer. "We don't do transactions, we do relationships."
Dan Miller of Sammamish, WA, and his 12-year-old Beagle, Ditto, policyholders since 2006, stay loyal to Embrace because they do business honestly, professionally, and always put their customers first.
"The Embrace staff, end to end, is top notch," says Miller. "Whether dealing with policy renewals or answering questions about claims, everyone is responsive and helpful. You don't get typical stock answers you expect from customer service teams. Everything is truly personalized and feels sincere. The staff genuinely takes an interest in your family and pet, and makes sure claims and questions are answered quickly, professionally, and fairly."
