Cook Maran & Associates has been named a 2012 “Top 50 Independent Agency” by Encompass Insurance, it was announced today. The firm has 150 employees in offices in Voorhees and Fairlawn, N.J., as well as in East Hampton, Southampton and Melville, N.Y.
The award recognizes Cook Maran & Associates for outperforming more than 2600 independent agencies that represent Encompass throughout the U.S. Encompass is one of the few national insurers distributing personal insurance protection exclusively through independent agents.
In making the announcement, Tom Ealy, president of Encompass, said, “Cook Maran & Associates consistently exceeds customer expectations. Their commitment to personalized customer service is a major reason we are proud to join their team in helping people protect what matters most to them.”
Nick Cashan, vice president & director of the Cook Maran Philadelphia regional office, said, “This award reflects the efforts of all our employees to provide the best possible risk management solutions for our clients in Southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.”
Cook Maran & Associates was created in November 2012 with the merger of two leading privately held insurance brokerages—Cook, Hall & Hyde and Maran Corporate Risk Associates. The firm now ranks as one of the top privately held insurance brokerages serving the New York metro area, New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania.
“Top 50 Independent Agency” is the highest honor an insurance agency can receive from Encompass. Cook Maran will be recognized for outstanding performance at a ceremony to be held in Chicago in June.
