Ledgestone Insurance Finishes #1 in U.S.

Ledgestone Insurance Group is pleased to announce that they have been awarded the Personal Lines Elite Award from Erie Insurance, earning the #1 ranking in the U.S. for the year 2012 for auto and home insurance coverage. With over 2,125 Erie agencies and over 9,500 Erie agents, Ledgestone Insurance is proud to have received this honor.

“The business accomplishments in 2012 demonstrate an ability to execute balanced performance through growth and profitability,” says Justin Doss, Erie Insurance District Sales Manager.  “This incredible accomplishment clearly
illustrates an unwavering dedication and commitment to Erie Insurance, your job as agents, and your clients.”

In addition to being the #1 personal lines agency, Ledgestone Insurance Group also received the distinction of receiving the Commercial Elite Award, placing #7 nationwide amongst all Erie agencies.  “Ledgestone Insurance Group had a remarkable year in 2012. Only ten agencies nationwide earn Elite Awards in each category. Earning this award in two product categories is an extremely rare distinction,” said Lou Colaizzo, Erie Insurance Senior VP of Sales & Agency.

Ledgestone Insurance attributes their own success to a handful of things that distinguish them from other agents in the industry. “Anyone can provide a cheap rate, but we take it a step further by providing service that is above and
beyond,” says V.P. Nate Heinold. “We offer clients 24/7 access and can address questions on nights or weekends.” Heinold says the rates are only complemented by outstanding customer service: “Our agency will assist you in the claims process and not simply pass you along to an 800 number.”

Ledgestone Insurance is 100% client-centric and transparent.  “We make it simple to do business with us by meeting people at their place of business, at their dinner table, and anywhere else in between,” says President Don Endress.

“Ledgestone Insurance believes in putting the client first and finding what’s important to them. We offer various touch points to our clients throughout the year using the various forms of media and technology that people use on a daily basis.  And our annual review process allows us to update and structure policy changes to meet the evolving needs of our client’s personal and business insurance needs,” says Endress.
