GREENVILLE, S.C., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Employee Benefit Advisor (EBA), the nation's leading online source of benefit news to the broker and advisor community, has recognized Insurance Applications Group Inc. (IAG) of Greenville, S.C. as the second fastest-growing, large-group brokerage in the U.S. The ranking compares all U.S. brokerages across all industries with $10 million or less in large-group revenue. Backed by data from the business intelligence firm miEdge, EBA reported that IAG grew nearly 45 percent in the large-group market between 2014 and 2015.
IAG is a national employee benefits product design, communication and technology firm headquartered in Greenville, S.C. and with offices in Los Angeles; Dallas; Charlotte, N.C.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Chattanooga, Tenn.

CEO and Founder J. Marshall Dye shared one important reason for IAG's dramatic growth during this critical Affordable Care Act (ACA) adaptation period.
"A large part of our success comes from helping brokers, consultants and other partners navigate the complex and often confusing regulations and new policies associated with the ACA," he said. "Not only do we provide our customers and partners with one-on-one training about ACA and other complex government regulations, we have a full suite of the industry's most innovative, user-friendly technologies that allow them to confidently operate their businesses with prudent selections of fully insured ACA compliant products. The peace of mind we bring has immense value in our ever changing industry."
This most recent ranking adds to IAG's growing list of achievements, such as the 2015 Inc. 5000 list of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the sixth time In doing so, IAG earned a place on Inc.'s Honor Roll.
