MAIA Press Release

The N&D® Group Recognized for Continued Support of the Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents’ “Agent Awareness Campaign”

Recognition Underscores Company’s Commitment to Independent Agents

Dedham, Mass., December 10, 2015 – At the recent “ MAIA Big Event 2015, The Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents recognized The Norfolk & Dedham Group® for the Company’s continued support of the Agent Awareness Campaign. Now in its 16th year the Agent Awareness Campaign employs a variety of media, including but not limited to television and radio, to promote the value consumers realize by working with an independent agent. As a Diamond Partner, The N&D Group underscores its commitment to the independent insurance agency system.

While convenience and price are important considerations in the insurance transaction, there are several other aspects involved including differences in coverage options and matching a client with the right carrier based on service, expertise, and claim-paying abilities. An independent agent has the knowledge and experience necessary to evaluate these different aspects and create a customized solution.

“Choosing the right type and amount of insurance coverage for your business, home, or vehicle is extremely important and can be complex,” said The N&D Group’s Senior Vice President Joel Murray. “Buying insurance is not like buying a book, a plane ticket, or gas for your car, where the decision for many comes down solely to convenience or price. In today’s world of tweets and sound bites, it is important for agents, and independent-agent carriers, to educate consumers on the expertise agents provide to help them protect their most valuable assets. The MAIA Agent Awareness Campaign strives to achieve this goal and we are pleased to have been a supporter since the beginning.”
