Allstate Insurance Company is looking to expand in Georgia. Allstate plans to appoint more than 152 new insurance agents in the Peach State over the next year.
“Georgia’s strong economy is fueling this expansion plan. We target cities and areas that show growth and increasing demand as a part of Allstate’s broader strategy to expand our presence in Georgia,” said Kelly Wendt, Allstate’s Southeast region strategic deployment leader. “We are aggressively targeting qualified professionals. If they don't have an insurance background, we'll provide them with comprehensive education and the resources to help them get off to a solid start.”
Of those 152 insurance agents, 38 appointments will be small business owners running an Allstate agency, with the remaining 114 as licensed sales producers. Allstate is seeking agency owners who are mid-career, mid-level managers who want to own and operate their own business. The addition of the new agencies will have a compounding effect on the Georgia job market since each new agent normally opens with a minimum of two employees to help ensure customers are well served with courtesy and efficiency. In addition, existing agency owners are also seeking licensed sales producers.
“Allstate is unique among other insurers because its agents own the economic interest in their business,” said Wendt. “Allstate agents can sell the economic interest in their agency. No other branded insurer has this option.”
Candidates interested in becoming an Allstate agency owner need a minimum of $75,000 of liquid capital to invest in their agency. This money does not go to Allstate; it helps ensure the agency can successfully fund the normal day-to-day costs associated with opening and running a business. Licensed sales producers need no liquid capital to apply.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the R3001 agency agreement.
