Hutchinson Traylor is proud to announce that it has been named a 2016 Best Practices Agency by the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America. The award is only given to a small, elite group of top performing agencies in the country, out of a field of 1,800 nominations.


The award was initiated by the Big “I” as a foundation to improve agency performance. Agencies are nominated by either a Big “I”-affiliated state association or insurance company and qualified based on operational excellence. “(These) agencies continue to adapt and lead the way to a brighter future, regardless of the challenges they face,” said Robert Rusbuldt, Big “I” President and CEO. The business practices of  “best” agencies are then documented in a Best Practices Study for others to adopt similar methods.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the industry with this prestigious award,” said Hutchinson Traylor Vice President Michael Dollar.  “We’re committed to caring professionalism and positively impacting the families and businesses we serve.”
