HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
IFG Companies has unveiled its new unified brand and website (www.ifgcompanies.com). Known for years as Burlington Insurance Company and Guilford Insurance Company, these two enterprises acted separately. IFG has officially combined these companies and brands into one team and one brand, IFG Companies. The logo and colors have been updated to reflect the fresh and forward looking attitude the company is building.
IFG Companies is one of the largest privately held insurance groups in the United States. This status allows IFG to conduct business in a way that focuses on advanced technology and on creating an exciting yet long term oriented environment.
“Approximately two years ago, the board and I decided to rebuild and expand IFG Companies such that, upon my death, it can be placed in or converted into an irrevocable trust with the trustees being directed and empowered to use profits to improve secondary education, particularly in rural America and for our military families,” said Bob Linton, Chairman IFG Companies. “The trust structure will also afford future management of IFG Companies the ability to continue, as I always have, to manage for the long term, which, particularly for an insurance enterprise, should maximize its ability to hire and retain first class people and build and maintain superior business units. In turn, this management philosophy should also maximize long-term growth, value and profits to serve America, while, at the same time, providing a safe and secure environment for IFG Companies' employees, its producers and its policyholders.”
Over the past two years, IFG Companies has welcomed many new team members, introduced state of the art technology capabilities, expanded its footprint and added new lines of business. IFG Companies is committed to being a stable, long-term platform for its network of dedicated producers and will continue to invest in creating outstanding service capabilities for its producers.
“This is an exciting time for IFG,” said Bob Linton, “I am proud of the team that we are assembling and welcome those that want to be part of our transformational journey.”
