Insurance Journal Podcast

In succession to his appearance on the IIABNJ’s panel discussion in Cape May on October 6th, Insurance Journal asked ANE CEO John K. Tiene to speak on agency aggregators, clusters and alliances.

Tiene explains the differences and similarities between the different models and what key characteristics are going to help a specific agency succeed.
