In 1983, the Satellite Agency Network Group (SAN Group) was formed for the purpose of establishing a large, regional alliance of local agencies.
The concept was to allow local agents to increase independence while concentrating on producing profitable business, and at the same time take advantage of the opportunities afforded only to large, regional agencies producing significant volumes of business.
SAN Group is now the largest alliance of independent insurance agencies in the Northeast, with over 300 Members writing over $410 million in combined written premium! Compare us to the insurance networks, insurance aggregators, and insurance clusters – we provide so much more.
In 1995, SAN was encouraged by numerous insurance industry consultants, company officers, associations and its own Agencies to replicate the SAN success and offer the concept to larger agencies on an Exclusive Territory basis in a turnkey format. Thus, Strategic Insurance Agency Alliance (SIAA) was born.
SIAA is now the nation’s largest alliance of independent insurance agencies with more than 3,500 signed members experiencing $727 Million in premium growth in 2009.
