PolicyZip Insurance Agency Continues to Grow in Kansas City
May 02, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsMay 2, 2016 - PolicyZip, a licensed insurance agency specializing in Medicare and life insurance, is expanding its offices in the Kansas City area. The firm, which launched in early 2016 and is backed by Plus2 Capital, announced a round of hirings this week as part of their initiative to hire up to 20 additional local employees before year's end.
President Brandon Laughridge said PolicyZip plans to be aggressive in its growth. "We're excited to build something big here in Kansas City. We can have all the tech and marketing prowess in the world, but our primary focus is on finding and cultivating talent here in town."
Laughridge and partner Nathaniel Broughton formed Plus2 Capital as a private equity fund early last year. Their decision to spin-out PolicyZip as a nationwide, online insurance agency stems from previous successes in financial services.
"Getting customers online and building custom technology to service those customers is what we're good at," added Laughridge. "We see opportunity for Medicare and life to apply those skills, and we're fortunate to have the funds from Plus2 to back it."
The company launched a proprietary software platform to manage client files, quoting and marketing communication earlier this year. The technology allows agents to more quickly work through a policy from "lead to close", and according to Laughridge, "fuels our ability to be more efficient than the competition."
With offices near Brookside, PolicyZip hopes to add both licensed sales agents and new trainees in the coming weeks. Benefits include competitive+plus pay, exclusive leads, and a robust company culture.
