Transitioning from a captive to an independent agency

Thousands of once captive agencies are going independent. The transition is neither quick nor easy. While the freedoms of an independent agency are numerous, they come with a new set of responsibilities to navigate. 

Join a live discussion with Jamie Trovato who went independent a decade ago to start Trovato Associates and Pamela Lofton Wells who has delighted customers while transitioning Lofton Wells Insurance from being a Nationwide exclusive agency. 

In this conversation, they will discuss:

  • How independence changed how they market
  • Which technology and partnerships have helped
  • Things they wish they knew at the start of the transition

If you're transitioning from captive insurance or considering starting an independent agency, don't miss this important live discussion.
