SouthGroup named to Top 100 U.S. Insurance Agencies

SouthGroup Insurance Services, with offices throughout Mississippi, has been named one of the Top 100 Privately-Held Insurance Agencies for 2013 by Insurance Journal. The listing is ranked by total 2012 property and casualty revenue. SouthGroup wrote over $130 million premium in property and casualty premium in Mississippi in 2012. The report is a glimpse at some of the nation’s top privately owned independent agencies and brokerages.

SouthGroup is a Mississippi owned company headquartered in Ridgeland, Mississippi with offices in 22 locations across the state. Ronnie Tubertini, President and CEO of SouthGroup, said he is pleased that SouthGroup was named to the Top 100. “It recognizes not only our revenue the volume of premium we write, which is mostly in Mississippi, but our ability to provide our clients with array of preferential choices for their insurance requirements.”

SouthGroup offers a unique business model to its clients called the Risk Reduction Approach. Focusing on risk assessment and risk reduction plans, it is designed to control a business’s total cost of risk.

“SouthGroup is a 12-year old company with a 115 year history”, says Tubertini. The agency was formed by a merger of 12 of Mississippi’s oldest and most respected insurance agencies in 2002. Some of the original agencies that became part of SouthGroup have been insuring Mississippi businesses for over 115 years.
