Westfield Insurance Announces Latest List of Top Performing Independent Agencies


Westfield Center, Ohio, May 11, 2015 - Westfield Insurance, a super-regional, customer-focused insurance carrier represented by approximately 1,000 independent agencies, announced its latest group of agencies qualifying for their Trilogy and Horizon programs.

In identifying Trilogy and Horizon agencies, Westfield measured the strength of each agency’s partnership with Westfield, their focus on growing business, how effectively they have positioned their agency for future success, their approach to customer service and how they have strategically aligned with the entire Westfield organization. As a group, Westfield’s Trilogy and Horizon agencies have outperformed with double digit growth and above average profitability.

Trilogy Agencies are partners with a commitment for long-term success. These agencies were identified as "the best of the best," an honor reserved for a select group of agency partners. This group represents approximately seven percent of Westfield’s overall agency total.

Westfield’s Horizon agencies were identified as a group of the company’s top performers, quickly approaching its top group, and recognized as being committed to growing with Westfield for the long-term. This group represents approximately eight percent of Westfield’s overall agency total.

Westfield agencies that receive Trilogy or Horizon status receive a package of additional benefits, including:

  • the opportunity to receive increased compensation in the form of an enhanced contingency program
  • enhanced benefits presented on top of the benefits already enjoyed by Westfield’s entire agency force
  • the ability to gain access to strategic support funds to help grow and improve their agencies
  • a service model tailored specifically to each Westfield Trilogy and Horizon agency

"The creation of the Trilogy and Horizon program is part of our ongoing Agency Distribution strategy to objectively evaluate agencies and develop a group of top agencies with expectations for above average growth," said Craig Welsh, Group Distribution Leader, Westfield Insurance. "Perhaps the most important benefit to gaining Trilogy/Horizon status is that these agencies gain access to an individual Agency Coordinator who assists in aligning plans and activities across the entire Westfield organization. Westfield believes we have the best agency force of any carrier and to be in the top 15 percent is a significant accomplishment given the superior quality of our agency force."
