Propel Insurance: We’re Different

Propel Insurance: We're Different

Propel Insurance is a locally owned, full-service insurance brokerage specializing in commercial insurance, surety, employee benefits, and personal lines. With a rich history dating back to 1923, Propel is the oldest independent insurance broker in the Pacific Northwest. Today, Propel employs some 350 employees in seven offices and represents tens of thousands of clients here in Tacoma, throughout the Pacific Northwest, across the nation, and abroad.

Most commercial businesses place their insurance through an independent insurance brokerage nowadays. Independent brokers like Propel can bring a lot of valuable resources to their clients. Claims management and client advocacy prove to be invaluable resources when clients are faced with difficult situations. Loss control programs and industry-specific expertise help clients stay ahead of potential problems. Add to this an independent agent’s ability to shop and negotiate terms and conditions with numerous carriers, finding you the best insurance program possible for your specific need. But what makes one brokerage better than the next? We at Propel think it is our people and our culture.

Propel attracts some of the most entrepreneurial people in the industry. The organization is designed around recognizing and rewarding the most creative and successful employees at all levels. From quarterly PROP Awards to Presidents Circle and Presidents Club, Propel has created a culture that enables folks to want to do their best, all the time. It’s not a job for everyone, that’s for sure. But when everyone is working at such a high level, “pulling on the oar together”, the energy is infectious. The employees can certainly feel it, but so too can the clients. Challenges become opportunities and the opportunities feed the creative, entrepreneurial spirit at Propel.
