The Premier Strategy Box story
From Mick Hunt, CEO and Founder of Premier Strategy Box
I was an insurance agency owner just like you
Right after I graduated college from UNC-Chapel Hill, I dove headfirst into the insurance industry as a sales manager at a Nationwide agency. But l see now I’ve always had the heart of an entrepreneur, so it wasn’t long before I went out on my own.
I opened up my own independent insurance agency with a focus on commercial lines. I had a team of producers and knew achieving organic revenue growth would be the key to my success.
But I couldn’t rely on luck or outdated sales playbooks to get the results I wanted.
It only took 3 years to take my agency to $3.2 million revenue organically
I didn’t achieve this growth because of an investment in a fancy technology stack. I used the same tools and platforms we all have access to. Instead, I credit our success to the following:
I built a streamlined, revenue-focused sales process for all of my producers to follow, strengthened with measurable KPIs, high standards, and clear accountability practices in place.
I developed an end-to-end process for driving organic revenue growth – what we today call Insurance RevOps – that maximizes revenue potential and fully aligns marketing, sales, and sales and service.
I sold my agency soon after and went on to oversee a large MGA. I grew overall revenue from $50 million to $70 million using the exact same processes and playbooks from my own agency.
After selling my agency, I oversaw a large MGA. In four years, I grew overall revenue from $50 million to $70 million by replicating the same processes and KPIs I had developed at my agency.
My belief in your success is why I created Premier Strategy Box
