CHICAGO, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Insureon, the nation's leading online agency for small-business insurance, today confirmed that Kyle Hoffman rejoined the company late last year as Vice President of Customer Success. In his current position, Hoffman will lead efforts around ensuring that Insureon customers receive unrivaled, ongoing risk management support throughout the life of their business.
"After seeing firsthand how other companies are entering the small commercial space, it became clear to me that meaningful change to the insurance world will only succeed when it's driven by inspired people from within the industry," said Hoffman, who worked briefly last year for another small-business insurance startup. "Insurance is just too complex to tackle effectively without deep industry knowledge alongside top-notch technology innovation."
Unlike startups attempting to revolutionize small business insurance from a technology-only perspective, Insureon has focused since day one on building and nurturing relationships with carrier partners. These relationships provide the foundation necessary to support TRUDI, Insureon's proprietary application-to-bind software that enables business owners from hundreds of industries to apply for insurance online and receive quotes, often in real time.
Hoffman noted that the commitment to constant improvement that underlies these differentiators was another reason he returned. "At Insureon, there's a culture of working together to solve big problems in creative ways," he said.
"Our primary carrier relationships and our commitment to maintaining leading-edge application and quoting software are central to our ability to support clients," said Ted Devine, Insureon's CEO. "They also help us retain the best talent in the industry is incredibly rewarding."
A leading player in the InsurTech space, Insureon leverages its unique online application to both serve retail clients directly and support the leading top-five banks, brokerages, and insurance companies in delivering their small commercial business. It places more than $300 million in premium annually.
