  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) February 14, 2014 - Consolidated Insurance Agents (CIA), an exclusive network of independently owned and operated insurance agencies, announced it has grown to 42 member agencies by the end of 2013. In the past two months, new members added to the network included Turner Brokerage of Woodcliff Lake, Crown Insurance Agency of Riverdale, Preferred Risk Agency of Florham Park, and North East RM Holding LLC of Cranford.

    "Consolidated Insurance Agents gives local insurance agents direct access to a variety of carriers that we work with as part of our network. With more companies and more products to offer their clients, these agencies can attract a broader array of clients to grow," says John Tiene, chief executive officer, CIA.

    CIA's highly innovative model allows agencies to gain scale and revenue, direct access to national and regional carriers, and it allows agencies to pool premium to improve contingency revenue - all while remaining completely independent.

    "Crown Insurance Agency joined CIA so that we would have the ability to offer our insured's more choices of carriers, so that we could get them the best coverage at the best price. I was previously a captive agent and only had a choice of one company. I prefer being a brokerage so that we can shop rates and products from multiple carriers to find the right choice for our personal lines as well as commercial customers," says Renee Kazanowski owner of Crown Insurance Agency in Riverdale.

    CIA is planning to double the size of its network in 2014, as well as expand to the Mid-Atlantic region. Other New Jersey insurance agencies added to the network in 2013 were SureCo Agency Inc. of Lakewood, Alamo Insurance and Financial Services of Lawrenceville, ALP Insurance and Financial Services of Cliffside Park, Berman Insurance Agency of North Brunswick, Volk Insurance Group of Milltown, and CK Insurance Agency of Edison.

    Consolidated Insurance Agents of NJ (CIA) was founded in 2009 to give independent insurance agents increased strength in the marketplace. CIA enables agents to maintain 100% ownership and control of their agencies while giving them the economy of scale to increase contingent income and access broader markets.
