BATAVIA – Tompkins Insurance Agencies has maintained its “Best Practices”status, as the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) has included the Batavia-based operation in its “Best Practices Study” group for the second consecutive year. Tompkins Insurance was one of only 262 independent agencies nationwide to qualify for and retain its Best Practices status after a full review of its financial stability and operational excellence.

The Big “I” and Reagan Consulting of Atlanta, GA have collaborated to conduct the annual study of leading independent insurance agencies since 1993. The study locates and documents the business practices of these “best” agencies based on revenue growth and profitability, financial stability, expense management, and sales and operations productivity, and urges others to adopt similar practices to improve agency performance.
