As Hutchison Insurance Agency approaches its 75th anniversary, the business environment has radically changed over that time. In 1940, Frank Hutchison could not have envisioned the radical differences his new insurance agency would undergo. The size, pace and sophistication of the insurance industry would explode. The problems of the world which needed insurance protection would increase exponentially and insurance agencies like Hutchison Agency would need to respond effectively.
Although Frank Hutchison would not recognize the high tech environment of his agency today, what he would recognize is its dedication and commitment to the service of its clientele. A hallmark of the agency, which began with its earliest roots, is the professionalism, integrity and knowledge of its production and service staff.
In a world which talks about Data Breach, Identity Theft, IT issues from business interruption caused by computer malfunctions, to credit card fraud and many other evolving threats, insurance coverage scrambles to keep up. It is the agent’s job to be aware of these trends and have the ability to access the markets and resources to provide solutions. To meet those challenges, Hutchison Agency took a great stride in 1998.
In January of 1998, Hutchison Insurance Agency became one of seven founding members of The Insurance Alliance of Central Pennsylvania. The Alliance, which now consists of 10 members, writes about $217.4 million annually in insurance premiums. The Insurance Alliance has been ranked by the Insurance Journal-National Edition as one of the Top 100 privately held property & casualty independent agencies since it began the ranking eight years ago. While The Alliance is a major market factor in the Central PA region, providing multiple, competitive companies for its clientele, Hutchison Agency, as a member, remains an independent, local business. However, through the Alliance, Hutchison accesses directly most of the major insurance carriers doing business in the US. The list includes ACE, Acuity, Allied, Amerisafe, Berkley, CNA, Chubb, Cincinnati, Donegal, Eastern Alliance, Fireman’s Fund, Great American, Guard, Hanover, Harleysville, ICW, Lackawanna, Liberty Mutual, Philadelphia, Penn National, PMA Group, Safeco, Selective, Travelers, State Auto, Westfield, U.S. Assure (formerly Zenith) and others. A platform of over 40 insurance companies allows the agency to provide products and services to both the commercial and personal lines arenas. Basically, Hutchison delivers a large broker marketplace with local service and commitment.
