Seitz Insurance Agency, Sidney, is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States designated as a “Best Practices Agency” by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”).
Each year since 1993, the Big “I” and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year.
“We are honored to be named a “Best Practice Agency,” said David Seitz, President. “This honor is reflective of our team and their commitment to providing the highest quality of service to our customers and the communities we serve.”
More than 2,600 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 282 agencies qualified for the honor. Seitz Insurance is one of two agencies selected from Montana. The agency was first nominated by either a Big “I” affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.
The Best Practices Study was initiated by the Big “I” in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the highest performing agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
Seitz Insurance Agency was founded in 1961 and operates as a local, independent agency. Serving Montana and North Dakota, Seitz Insurance Agency provides commercial, farm, crop and personal insurance, employee benefits and surety coverage.
