The Accel Group Recognized by Employers Mutual Casualty Insurance Company (EMC) for Outstanding Performance

The Accel Group, one of Iowa’s largest independent insurance agencies, with offices in Cedar Rapids, Waverly and Cedar Falls, has been named a Leading Partner by EMC Insurance Companies, which means the agency is one of the highest-performing EMC agencies in the country. This designation places the agency in the top 20 percent of all EMC agencies nationally.

“We’re excited to be partnering with EMC to provide our clients coverage solutions for property and casualty insurance that fit their individual needs,” stated Mike Byl, President, The Accel Group. “And we are honored to be recognized as a Leading Partner as this further acknowledges the ongoing dedication of our staff and commitment to our clients.”

The Leading Partner award is based on key indicators including retention, profitability and growth, which are reviewed over a three-year period. EMC developed its signature Agency Performance Value (APV) tool in 2005 to measure an agency’s performance against all other EMC agencies nationally. Agencies are evaluated on loss ratio, premium volume, policy and premium growth, policy and premium retention, and the position of EMC within the agency.
