Value added services and support
Many Program Carriers treat their Program Administrators (PA) at arms-length; offering no assistance or value to their PAs. For better or worse (you’ll be the judge), that’s not the Markel Style. Obviously, for our benefit, we monitor and audit the underwriting aspects of the Programs. However, as a relationship business, we also think it’s incumbent upon us to help you meet your objectives. With that in mind, we have established a variety of services as part of our value proposition:
Every Program includes a customized contingent commission program designed to incent and reward the PA for extraordinary underwriting performance.
For qualifying Programs, Markel will match “campaign specific” PA investments in marketing and sales designed to grow a profitable program.
Markel will supply experts in marketing, e-commerce, and social media at no charge to provide advice and counsel to a PA relative to their marketing plans and web presence.
Promotional and advertising assistance
Expert copywriters and graphics designers are available at no charge to assist in crafting marketing, sales, and advertising campaigns.
