Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company Seeks to Appoint 25 New Agency OwnersWritten by Staff
Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company is pursuing a plan to appoint 25 new agency owners by the end of 2011, the company announced June 1.
Allstate New Jersey, one of the state's largest insurance companies, is targeting successful, self-motivated professionals for a career as an Allstate exclusive agent. Unlike typical entrepreneurships, Allstate New Jersey provides its new agents with essential tools and resources to help them get off to a great start, including: insurance product education, expertise from company sales consultants, customizable marketing and advertising materials, and performance incentives. The company currently has approximately 270 agents and financial representatives throughout the state.
In addition, new and existing Allstate New Jersey agencies are projected to hire hundreds of licensed sales professionals and personal financial representatives. These positions involve selling life insurance, annuities, mutual funds, and other financial services products.
"The Allstate New Jersey opportunity is encouraging news for entrepreneurs looking for a chance to excel in a down economy," said Dale Schueller, regional sales leader, Allstate New Jersey. "If you do not have an insurance background, we will provide you with education to help position you for success."
Unlike other insurers, Allstate New Jersey agents actually own their own business as independent contractors selling Allstate's wide range of insurance and financial products, including auto and financial services.
"This also is a unique investment opportunity since owners can resell the economic interest in the book of business to other Allstate New Jersey approved candidates when the time comes to retire or leave the business," said Schueller.
Ideal candidates should have the skills to run their own business, the drive to meet business objectives, and $150,000 in liquid capital to invest in a new Allstate New Jersey agency.
