Denver-based CCIG, a leader in risk management and insurance solutions for business and individual clients nationwide, has added more than 40 new professionals to its ranks, deepening its focus on talent growth and culture development, which has contributed heavily to the company’s double-digit growth.
For the past two years, many independent insurance brokerages have been acquired by national firms that consolidate operations to maximize profitability but CCIG has chosen to invest in and strengthen its own independent organization by growing its staff of new professionals. CCIG is using this employee growth to broaden employee opportunities and add support for new and existing clients, including the additional 500 new clients CCIG has added since 2022.
As a result of these efforts, CCIG was recently named as one of Denver’s Best Places to Work by The Denver Post for the seventh time.
“With accelerating mergers and acquisitions activity in the insurance space, top talent gets lost in the shuffle, and this ultimately impacts clients,” said CCIG Chief Operating Officer JB Richardson. “At CCIG, we’re playing offense by making a vigorous and concerted effort to bring first-rate talent to CCIG. At CCIG, our employees can accelerate their personal growth and better serve our clients in our vibrant, people-focused culture.”
Richardson said that CCIG has the capabilities, technology, and expertise of a national brokerage while providing its clients with local support.
“Top performers are taking note,” he said. “Some of these services include an industry-leading safety and analytics team and a deeply experienced claims advocacy team.”
CCIG’s newest team members include a who’s who of sales, insurance, claims and employee benefits professionals.
In May 2023, CCIG received the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America’s Best Practices Award for the ninth year in a row, illustrating its steadfast commitment to its team and clients. More than 30,000 insurance brokerages nationwide compete for the honor, but only 150 receive the prestigious designation as a Best Practices brokerage. Winners must perform well in employee engagement, customer relations, growth, and overall performance.
“CCIG was built with culture being central to our success and velocity,” said CCIG founder and CEO Brook Mahoney. “The future of our business is captured in the knowledge, innovation, and passion our team brings to the table every day. That’s why we are committed to preserving our independence to benefit our staff and our clients.”
