Hylant Again Designated a 2022 Best Practices Agency by the Big “I” and Reagan Consulting

October 11, 2022

Toledo, OH October 11, 2022 – Hylant once again is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group. The annual study documents the business practices of the “best” agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.

Each year since 1993, the Big “I” and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year.

“We are proud to be recognized again for our business practices because they reflect the care and excellence we strive for when delivering services to our clients and working with our partners,” said Bubba Berenzweig, Chief Executive Officer of Hylant.

More than 2,600 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 282 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.
