PUBLIC SCHOOLS, PRIVATE SCHOOLS, CHARTER SCHOOLS, SCHOOL BUS CONTRACTORS

Insurance programs as unique and special as the agents who offer them

Advantages for Specializing in Public Schools with Glatfelter Public Practice

ADVANTAGES

FOR SPECIALIZING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Schools are everywhere and you (and your agency) are taxpayers!
Serving K-12 public schools typically means you'll end up sitting in front of a school board of directors or trustees. These individuals are often local professionals with other commercial and personal lines needs—and great connections to make for your growing book.
Schools are not generally an annual marketing event and they generally stick with the same insurance services for a three-year period. This gives agents stability from a revenue standpoint and a long-term period to build relationships.

Coverage available countrywide except: AK, DE, HI, IL, KY, MS, NY, TX and WV
Limited coverage is available in: AR, FL, IA, KS, LA, MO, NE, NC, OK and PA
Casualty only available in: FL, KS and OK

ADVANTAGES

FOR SPECIALIZING IN PRIVATE & CHARTER SCHOOLS

Public and charter schools run like a business, this means their decisions are less political (and more logical) than public schools. If you provide the policy that makes the most sense, you’re likely to gain the account.
Once you place it and continue to service it properly, you’re likely to keep it.
Private and charter schools have straightforward processes and flat organizations. This lessens your time, and expenses, while binding business.
Serving private and charter schools typically mean you'll end up sitting in front of a board of directors or trustees. These people are often local professionals with other commercial and personal lines needs—and great connections to make for your growing book.

Advantages for Specializing in School Bus Contractors with Glatfelter Public Practice

ADVANTAGES

FOR SPECIALIZING IN SCHOOL BUS CONTRACTORS

School bus contractors are a popular option for school districts because they hire local drivers, have a sole purpose and can save districts money. Even so, specialized insurance for school bus contractors are limited, and generally less competitive for agents.
Due to it being an underserved market, if you partner with a program that has a differentiating product with obvious coverage advantages, like Glatfelter, you’re likely to gain the account.
In most parts of the country, these risks can generate more than $30,000 in total revenue, exclusive of Workers' Compensation.
Coverage available countrywide except: AK, HI, KS & OK

REINVENTING BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS

BRINGING PEOPLE BACK INTO THE EQUATION.

Your success is our success. That means when we partner with an agent who is as passionate about caring for caretakers as we are—we support them with the ongoing training and resources they need to thrive in the market.

With Glatfelter, you'll find a partner that:

We understand the value of our partnerships. That’s why we’re always ready to get on sales calls with you, explain our coverage advantages and work together to bind business. Glatfelter programs boast retention level percentages in the 90s, with some reaching as high as 98 percent! This allows you to focus on growing new business rather than keeping it, while we do the rest.

We’re specialists and we work with agent partners to help you become the same. We provide you with a broad variety of educational opportunities and resources, including access to a dedicated underwriter, on-site training and an online portal so you can grow your book for the long-term.

We offer a Most Valuable Producer (MVP) loyalty program to provide dedicated agents with the benefits and rewards they deserve, including co-branded marketing materials, co-op advertising, early-access to programs and an invitation to our legendary MVP Conference.

According to the Better Business Bureau, 93% of American adults said that a company’s reputation for honesty and fairness was extremely important to them—and you know as well as we do that relationships are the backbone of insurance. That’s why we’ve built our programs around the unique needs of our clients, and we serve these industries with the highest integrity, responsiveness and dedication possible.
