ASPN Insurance Agency, LLC, a subsidiary of Aon Corporation, announced this week a new relationship with Zurich, a programs carrier writing program business for over 50 years, and ZProgramsMatch.com, a new online forum owned and developed by Zurich to provide appointed agents with the ability to access new markets and programs. Zurich works with many industry specialist Program Administrators (PA's) and General Agents (GA's) across the country.
"ASPN is thrilled to be working with Zurich and excited to promote their packaged insurance solutions for niche markets. Zurich Programs will provide our independent agents with access to A-rated specialty programs," said Brigitte Gearhart, ASPN’s VP of Operations. "Zurich has a track record of positive results and an appetite to grow. We look forward to working with Zurich.”
Jino Masone, Cheif Marketing Officer for Zurich's Programs & Direct Markets business unit, noted, "Zurich looks to assist our PA's and GA's in attracting customers to their offerings. ASPN offers access to a large number of agencies that may not routinely look to Zurich for a solution. The Zurich initiative with ASPN will drive additional business to selected Program Administrators, helping our PA's and Zurich write more business in the segments we desire....a 'win' for the PA, Zurich and ASPN."
As part of their alliance, ASPN will market Zurich's specialty programs for Tanning Salons, Security Guards and Alarm Installation, and Title Agents E&O coverage nationwide.
