McNeil & Company’s marketing philosophy is focused on the creation of long term relationships with our field agents. We look for agencies whose principals are willing to commit to focused lines of business and who want to grow in related market segments. Our approach is to provide support and assistance to these agents in order to promote maximum program growth at each state of the sales cycle.
Our company is defined neither as a brokerage or traditional company agent. Instead, we seek individual brokers/agents who are prepared to specialize in selling a particular class of business. McNeil & Company currently has several hundred appointed agents who we work closely with and train in specialized insurance issues and coverages, client servicing and risk management areas. Prior to entering a new territory, our company performs an intense due diligence review in order to determine the feasibility of marketing our products in a given region. Once positive indications of potential success are identified, we seek out, talk with and appoint qualified agents to service the new market area.
