As an independent agent, I have the privilege of writing for some of the top companies in the nation. Here are some things about Progressive I thought you might like to know:
In Minnesota they are the 3rd largest auto insurer and growing steadily. There are 11 claims offices statewide and they employ 282 people. (this number does not include their independent agents)
The following is taken directly from their website:
The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies has been called a visionary — a maverick leading a wave of change within the insurance industry. In business since 1937, Progressive is now one of the nation’s largest auto insurance groups, and is the largest writer of private passenger auto insurance through independent agents in the country.
