[CINCINNATI, OHIO]— In a transformative journey that began five years ago, Camargo’s leadership made bold decisions to reshape the agency, setting the stage for sustained growth and innovation. This strategy is what earned them the prestigious 2023 Agent for the Future Award in the Outstanding Small Agency category.


Restructuring initiated by Camargo's leaders included relocating the agency from the suburbs to a dynamic downtown location near local universities. They implemented an integrated AMS-CRM system, elevating operational efficiency, enhancing customer experience, and leveraging data-driven insights. This was complemented by a digital marketing strategy and a commitment to assembling a diverse and talented team under the mantra of "people first – tech to empower them."  All resulted in Camargo Insurance experiencing four consecutive years of organic growth exceeding 20%. 


"We are honored to receive the 2023 Agent for the Future Award, which recognizes our commitment to innovation, growth, and inclusivity. Our growth is a testament to the power of strategic thinking, technology integration, and putting people at the heart of everything we do," said Jay Mueller, CEO of Camargo.


Camargo also attributes their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as a cornerstone of its success. The agency proudly boasts a workforce that speaks four languages and represents diverse backgrounds. Looking ahead, they plan to continue their DEI focus as they expand their team of insurance advisors, aiming to more than double its size within the next three years.
