AUSTIN, Texas, April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Insuraprise, Inc., the most productive Medigap insurance agency in the United States, announced several benchmark achievements that demonstrate the company's sustained growth and commitment to customer service as the insurance industry faces historically unprecedented demand for Medicare Supplemental coverage for the Baby Boomer generation as they begin turning 65 this year.
Other benchmark growth announcements this week include the hiring of Casey Hughes, Vice President, Market Development, Brian McKinney, Direct Marketing Director and Steven Phenix, PR/Social Media Director.
Insuraprise's investments in staffing have increased sales by almost 300 percent since it began hiring 18 months ago. Customer retention metrics have also benefited as the company now boasts industry leading persistency. With over 40 years combined industry experience among its founders, the company currently employs over 40 people and it has grown its sales staff from six employees to 23 in the last year and half. Insuraprise anticipates more near-term growth and will hire 35 additional agents and sales support staff for its Medigap360.com subsidiary before October, with additional hires planned for 2012. Additionally, the company is in the process of buying an office building with enough square footage to accommodate planned growth.
Medigap360.com makes it easy for customers to compare and choose Medicare supplement insurance (Medigap) plans from nationwide providers and then complete the application form online to find out if they qualify. Medicare insurance supplement specialists are also available for those who prefer personal assistance.
"Thanks to Austin's very talented, highly-motivated workforce, we're able to staff up in anticipation of the nearly 10,000 Baby Boomers a day who began turning 65 this year," said Insuraprise CEO Brandon Todd. "Based on overall sales and average agent production, we are now the most productive agency in the country thanks to all our new hires. We're confident that the talent pool here in Austin will make it possible for us to meet the ever-changing needs of the close to 80 million people who'll come of age by 2030."
