Allstate Recruiting California

SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Allstate Insurance Company plans to add additional agency owners in California in 2014, expanding its recruiting campaign for the sixth consecutive year. Allstate signed 73 new exclusive agency owners in California in 2013, after adding 58 in 2012 and 2011, 44 in 2010, and 17 in 2009.

"Allstate is committed to growing in California and to serving more Californians," says John Stolte, Regional Field Sales Leader for Allstate in California. "Entrepreneurial professionals with financial and sales backgrounds interested in making a career out of helping people should contact Allstate to learn more of this opportunity."

Candidates for Allstate agency ownership need a minimum of $50,000 of liquid capital to invest in their agency. Not a franchise fee, "this commitment is an investment in their agency," Stolte says. "It covers the frequent and expected operating expenses associated with a successful new agency. "

As owner of their small business, these entrepreneurs are in charge of hiring licensed sales and customer service staff as part of building their business plan to serve the communities where they live and work. These operating resources also augment the marketing and product support that's provided by Allstate.

"Allstate is unique among insurers because its agents own the economic interest in their business," says Stolte.  "Allstate agency owners can grow that interest and eventually sell it if they choose. No other branded insurer has this option."

"Allstate further separates itself from industry competitors with best-in-class new owner curriculum, imparting the knowledge necessary to run a successful agency in California," he says. "New agency owners receive comprehensive instruction on every aspect of insurance and customer service in order to serve policyholders best and to grow their business."

Additional Hiring Could Total Hundreds More

Allstate is also encouraging agencies across the state to hire licensed sales professionals—at least a couple hundred more to reflect the Allstate commitment to grow auto business and increase service to Californians. The country's second largest auto insurance provider is also moving to strengthen its California presence in the boat, motorcycle and recreational all-terrain vehicle insurance markets. 

Allstate currently insures approximately 2 million California passenger cars and trucks plus more than a million homes, and features more than 4,000 agency owners, support staff and employees in the state.

Interested candidates can learn more about owning an Allstate agency by logging on to www.allstateagent.com or by contacting Linda Black or Angie Garcia, senior recruiting consultants in California, at (916) 859-8804 or (916) 859-8851, and Angie.Garcia@Allstate.com or Linda.Black@Allstate.com.
