Discover how Camargo's achievements led to winning the prestigious Safeco Agent for the Future Award.

The Significance of the Safeco Agent for the Future Award

The Safeco Agent for the Future is a highly prestigious insurance industry award. It recognizes insurance agencies that demonstrate outstanding performance and innovation in adapting to the rapidly evolving landscape of the insurance industry.

By winning the Safeco Agent for the Future Award, Camargo has proven itself as a trailblazer in the industry. This award is a testament to their commitment to excellence, forward-thinking strategies, and dedication to meeting the evolving needs of their clients.

Reverse Engineering the Agency of The Future

In 2019 Camargo was torn down and rebuilt. That included process, tech, and even its physical office. The agency’s leadership could see the industry changing rapidly, and wanted to build a foundation that would set Camargo up for decades of future success.  The restructuring process included moving from the suburbs to a new office downtown near local universities to help recruit top talent, creating and implementing an integrated AMS-CRM environment to manage workflows, creating custom tailored experiences for their clients, and most importantly, recruiting a dynamic & diverse team that has helped Camargo continue to exceed its growth goals.  

People First - Tech to Power Them

Camargo makes it a point to stay focused on its own unique value, which is decidedly different from that of large, tech-first competitors.  Camargo strives to learn from these larger, well capitalized agencies, including the tools they are using that could help support Camargo’s vision, but they do not strive to be them. Camargo’s customers value quality insurance & professional advisors. Technology simply provides tools to help Camargo’s team meet those customers where they are, and deliver a modern, efficient experience.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Drive Growth & Innovation

Camargo is proud of its diverse, dynamic team & believes commitment to Diversity Equity and Inclusion paves the way for a vibrant and innovative future. Camargo’s team includes native speakers of four languages, multiple first generation Americans, and a multitude of backgrounds. Women represent 50%+ of its leadership team, advisory board and sales team.

By fostering an inclusive culture, Camargo Insurance ensures that every employee feels valued, respected, and supported. They prioritize diversity in their hiring practices, actively seek diverse perspectives, and provide equal opportunities for growth and advancement.

This commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion has not only created a positive work environment but has also enabled Camargo Insurance to better understand and serve their diverse client base. They are able to offer tailored insurance solutions that meet the unique needs of different communities and demographics.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just buzzwords for Camargo Insurance; they are integral to their business strategy. By embracing diversity, they have fostered a culture of innovation and creativity, where different ideas are celebrated and encouraged.
