2017 Agent Meetings Celebrate Shared Success

The dedication and support of our partner agents in 2016 made for an extraordinary year. We took to the road in late May to celebrate these efforts and strengthen partnerships with agencies across California at the 2017 CompWest agent meetings.

This year’s theme, “Commit to the Climb,” reminded us of our shared success in exceeding the company growth plan and inspired us to maintain that momentum in the times ahead. The nearly 150 agency employees in attendance heard business updates and plans for the company’s long-term growth in a presentation delivered by CompWest leadership. The presentation outlined 2016 financial highlights and key accomplishments, industry trends, and overviews in the areas of claims, fraud prevention, loss control and underwriting.

We extend a sincere thank-you to all agents who attended this year’s agent meetings. The CompWest team looks forward to this annual opportunity for face time and camaraderie with our valuable partners. We appreciate and harbor your feedback and look forward to even deeper relationships and commitment to our mutual growth.

Congratulations on your continued efforts, and keep climbing!
