Horton Group Included in IIABA’s Best Practices Study

Thursday, September 12, 2019

CHICAGO, IL, Monday, SEP 9, 2019 – Horton Group is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.

Each year since 1993, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue 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. Horton received the Best Practices status for 2019 and has held this status for consecutively since 2016.

“Our vision defines the company we want to be today, and into the future. That vision is to be a special company, one that is successful, good, and passed to future generations. Our customers’ successes, which root from industry-leading practices at Horton will continue to drive us in our innovation and to ensure continuous execution,” said Dan Horton, President & Chief Sales Officer of the Horton Group.

More than 1,300 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 267 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, Horton was among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.
