The Strategic Insurance Agency Alliance has signed its 4,000th member agency — Bi-State Insurance & Financial of Camp Girardeau, Mo.
Recruited by master agency Valley Insurance Agency Alliance of Clayton, Mo., Bi-State has been servicing the insurance needs of Southeastern Missouri for 25 years. However, its recent purchase by James Saunders is kicking the heritage agency into high-growth mode.
Prior to taking over Bi-State, Saunders was an agent for Missouri Farm Bureau for almost a decade. Awarded “Rookie of the Year” in 2002, he grew his shop to the largest health agency in the country.
Saunders is looking forward to similar growth with Bi-State by increasing available products to commercial, farm, home, auto, health and life insurance, as well as retirement financial planning.
Valley Insurance Agency Alliance has been a partner Master Agency of SIAA since 2006.
