Saunders is Insurance Business America’s ‘Young Guns 2017 Rankings’

GALLIPOLIS — Scott W. Saunders, of Saunders Insurance Agency, has been selected as one of Insurance Business America’s Young Guns 2017 Rankings.

Insurance Business America’s Young Guns rankings consist of insurance industry innovators creating the next great insurance products, entrepreneurs who branched out to start businesses of their own and producers whose books of business rival those of top industry veterans. Collectively, these individuals – all age 35 and younger – are inspiring their peers with their expertise and passion for the industry. In today’s competitive insurance market, standing out amid a pool of immense talent can be a challenge. Yet these 55 young professionals have risen above the pack by blending 21st-century moxie with old-school work ethic.

Insurance Business America’s profile of Saunders states “In his five years with Saunders Insurance Agency, Scott Saunders has facilitated a 22 percent increase in direct written P&C premium and contributed to the agency’s 45 percent increase in gross profit over a 10-year period. So far this year, Saunders has written $145,000 in new business premium. He will speak at the annual Mountain State Agency Alliance/Strategic Insurance Agents Association Conference later this year on the use of Facebook and digital media in marketing – an area he is quite familiar with, having spearheaded the rebranding of Saunders Insurance Agency’s marketing campaign. Last year, Saunders was elected secretary of the Downtown Revitalization Project, a nonprofit that incentivizes growth in downtown Gallipolis, Ohio. Saunders also has served on the Business Advisory Council for the University of Rio Grande Evans School of Business.”

The IBA Young Guns 2017 Rankings will appear in Insurance Business America issue 5.08 released on Aug. 19. Insurance Business America’s Young Guns rankings can also be viewed at
