Hagerty, a membership, insurance and media organization for enthusiast vehicles and owners, continued its growth as an automotive lifestyle company today by announcing a new operations center in Dublin, Ohio.
The new facility eventually will employ about 200 full-time IT, licensed sales agents, claims and insurance product professionals.
The facility also will provide additional geographic coverage and support numerous services such as inbound support for members of the Hagerty Drivers Club, servicing new and existing insurance policies, claims handling and technology development.
With more than 1.5 million members, Hagerty Drivers Club offers exclusive events and experiences, discounts, premium roadside assistance and more.
This year, millennials and Gen Xers surpassed the massive Baby Boom generation as the driving force in the enthusiast vehicle market, requesting insurance and vehicle value data from Hagerty by a roughly 53-47 percent margin.
Hagerty has been steadily adding services and offerings to meet the demands of car fans of all ages. This year, the company expanded its award-winning magazine (Hagerty), published its first book (Never Stop Driving: A Better Life Behind the Wheel), and acquired North America’s largest motorsport membership and event management system (Motorsportreg), as well as the renowned Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Hagerty said the Columbus Region’s vibrant business community, automotive sector and highly skilled employee base will help Hagerty continue its North American growth. Hiring for new positions at the Dublin campus will begin in Q4 2019.
Headquartered in Traverse City, Michigan, Hagerty has additional offices across the U.S., U.K., Germany and Canada, employing roughly 1,200 people.
