Chicago-based ASPN, the Agency Specialty Products Network Insurance Agency LLC, formed a new alliance with San Francisco-based ISU International and the ISU Network, one of the nation’s largest group of independently owned and operated agencies.
The new marketing alliance will further expand the ISU Network’s national presence and allow both ASPN and ISU to offer qualified independent agents a unique suite of products and services.
ISU provides its more than 100 ISU Network member agents access to exclusive ISU programs and over 300 insurance companies. ASPN is a subsidiary of Aon Corp. and operates as a marketing arm for more than 20 provider companies, including carriers, managing general underwriters and insurance services companies.
“ISU will provide our independent agencies ways to increase revenue and gain a competitive edge,” says Paul Granata, ASPN’s western regional vice president.
“Indeed, the combination of exclusive goods and services from ISU, our model offering our members direct access to standard carrier products and services plus ASPN’s suite of specialty carriers and products can be a significant and unique competitive advantage for the qualified independent agent,” adds Steve Pearson, president of ISU International.
