Stark Insurance Services Becomes 1,600th SIAA Member

March 9, 2005

Stark Insurance Services of Buckhannon, W.V. has become the 1,600th Independent Strategic Agency in the Strategic Independent Agents Alliance of Hampton, N.H. Stark joins the Mountain State Agency Alliance Master Agency network, a division of Ramsey Insurance Agency, Inc. in Charleston, WV.

Tim Stark, president, who started the agency in July, 1989, has been in the insurance business since 1978. Stark Insurance is a family business providing multi-line services to its community. The agency represents SIAA Strategic Partner Companies, The Hartford, St. Paul/Travelers, Safeco and Zurich.

“Becoming a SIAA member has enabled our agency to gain access to additional markets, Stark said. “This allows me to better serve my clients and pursue business opportunities previously unavailable to the agency. Our growth objectives will be greatly served by the support and guidance of not only SIAA, but Mountain State Agency Alliance.”

“We enthusiastically welcome Stark Insurance Services as our 1,600th Independent Strategic Agency,” Jim Masiello SIAA chairman said. It took SIAA seven years to reach 500 Agencies, 24 months to reach 1,000 and 24 months to reach this milestone.

“SIAA is in the right time and the right place, especially for smaller agencies who want to remain independent and grow as well as for those captives, direct writers, producers, and life and financial service agents who want to become independent agencies,” Masiello said. “SIAA enjoys a unique position in the independent insurance agency system. Our goal is to support and allow all member agencies to grow and profit well beyond anything that they could do on their own.”
