SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Aug. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mid-Atlantic business owners joined Assurance Monday, Aug. 6, at its new office location in Arlington, Va., to celebrate the independent insurance brokerage’s official move into the region. Assurance brings with it a passion for minimizing risk and maximizing health in the workplace. The insurance brokerage – one of the largest and most awarded in the U.S. – has a goal to cultivate safer and healthier workplaces that support employee health and happiness.
During the celebration, Senior Vice President Scott Lockman welcomed Assurance partners and invited them to explore how Assurance can help them minimize risk and create healthier workplaces. Lockman’s comments were followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Arlington, Va. Chamber of Commerce. The company plans to grow organically in the area, adding up to 30 new jobs in the next few years and offering an opportunity to work at an awarded “Best Place to Work.”
“Minimizing risk and maximizing health is not only a priority for our clients, but for us internally as an organization,” said Tony Chimino, CEO of Assurance. “Our strong focus on safety, health and wellness has been recognized across the country, and we look forward to bringing that culture to the Mid-Atlantic region.”
In the Mid-Atlantic, Assurance will work closely with new and current clients in a variety of industries, including construction, senior living services and government contracting, to develop risk management solutions that protect client assets, and benefit and wellness strategies that engage and retain employees. Assurance’s new office location is at 3101 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, VA.
“From our current locations in Chicago and Schaumburg, Ill., Assurance has built a solid reputation across the country as the premiere brokerage for businesses looking to offer more than just insurance solutions to their employees,” said Chimino. “Assurance’s solutions go beyond separate health and business insurance policies to create all-encompassing strategies that keep employees happy and boost bottom lines. Assurance has a lot of great clients and connections with business owners in the Mid-Atlantic region already, and we are looking forward to establishing a physical presence here with the new office.”
