2013 Safeco Premier Partner Agent

First Dependable Insurance is honored to have been selected for membership in Safeco’s Premier Partner Program, formerly known as the H.K. Dent Society. Fewer than 10 percent of Safeco’s agents nationally qualify for the distinction each year. 2013 marks the first year that Safeco has recognized First Dependable Insurance for this honor.

Wrote Matthew D. Nickerson, Safeco Insurance president: “The Premier Partner Program recognizes and rewards excellence among independent agents in the following areas: superior underwriting (profit), effective business acumen (growth) and steadfast loyalty (size and tenure).”

As a Premier Partner, First Dependable Insurance has valuable company resources most other Safeco agents don’t, including exclusive direct access to key region and home office executives.

Hawthorne K. Dent founded the General Insurance Company of America in 1923. Safeco was created from General in 1953 to provide more aggressive solutions for independent agents in an increasingly competitive insurance market. Today, 90 years after Mr. Dent’s bold ambition took root , Safeco is focused 100 percent on independent agents like First Dependable Insurance.

In short, not all Safeco agents are the same.
