Tiene, CEO, ANE. “It also provides agents with a direct line to MUSIC, one of the best markets for small to mid-sized accounts that require placement in the excess and surplus lines market to cover a wide array of risks.”

Our annual conference brings together more than 40 ANE agents from across New Jersey and the mid-Atlantic states. The theme of this year’s conference was “The Holy Grail for Agency Owners: Attracting, Managing and Compensating Quality Producers.” The event featured keynote speaker Dr. Robert Hartwig, President of the Insurance Information Institute, followed by six breakout sessions, including one on “Producer Accountability” by Jim Wochele, Senior Consultant at MarshBerry.
Yesterday’s announcement continues the momentum that began last April when ANE unveiled its new brand and logo, and announced we were adding resources and staff to expand into Pennsylvania and other mid-Atlantic states. In the last year, ANE has added executives and expanded our product portfolio to better serve our agents.
