Comma Insurance Included in the BIG "I" 2021 Best Practices Study

Comma Insurance is honored to be included among those agencies named in the Best Practices Study. Read the following press release to learn more! 

Comma Insurance Included In the Big “I” 2021 Best Practices Study

            Oklahoma City, OK – We are pleased to confirm that Comma Insurance has retained its Best Practices Agency status for 2021.

In 2019, Comma was selected as a Best Practices agency. We qualified by ranking among the top performers in the annual Best Practices Study conducted by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) and Reagan Consulting.

The purpose of the Best Practices Study is to compile the operating statistics of the country’s leading agents and brokers. To achieve this objective, the agencies included in the annual Study must first be nominated for participation by an insurance carrier or an IIABA state-affiliated association. The agency must then submit detailed financial and operational information which is analyzed, scored, and ranked objectively for inclusion in the study, based on operational excellence, including growth, profitability, productivity, and financial stability.

To retain the Best Practices agency status, Comma submitted our year-end results for review each year. Every third year, when new agency nominations are accepted, we must re-qualify as one of the top performers in our revenue category.

“At Comma, we are pleased to have retained our Best Practices agency status since 2019,” Comma Insurance CEO Timothy Harlin. “We’re excited to participate again in 2022 as the cycle starts again. Since 2019, we've more than doubled our business these best practices have helped us to better serve more customers across the country as our agencies expand into additional states.”

Participation in the Best Practices Study has become a prestigious recognition of the superior accomplishments of the top insurance agencies in each of the six revenue size categories studied. In 2019, which marked the start of a new three-year cycle, more than 1,000 agencies were nominated and 267 qualified for the study group. Our inclusion with these outstanding agents and brokers clearly recognizes us as an industry leader.

The 2021 Best Practices Study sponsors include: Amerisure, Applied, Allstate/Encompass/NatGen Premier/National General Insurance, Central Insurance, Chubb, EMC Insurance, The Hanover Insurance Group, The Hartford, Imperial PFS, InsurBanc, Liberty Mutual/Safeco Insurance, Foremost, Nationwide, Progressive, Travelers, Vertafore and Westfield.
