Nick Petrocelli, COO of ASNOA, and Stephen Gebhardt, Southwest VP of Distribution at ASNOA


What is the shape of insurance in the modern age?

Independent agencies have always been independent.

Now, the independent agent channel is ‘shape-shifting’ more than ever. More and more agencies are cooperating, coordinating, and collaborating in one form of network or another. 

Fast growth networks demand our attention. They signal things to come. What your competition may look like, and opportunities for your own agency. 

In this interview, Nick Petrocelli and Stephen Gebhardt from ASNOA share their insights on:

  • The rapid pace of change in the industry, how agencies can respond, keep up, and win… and why Nick believes “The squeeze is on!”
  • Nick’s five-part method to help agencies choose which technologies to invest in and which ones you should ignore in the face of so many emerging technologies.
  • How integrating tech with the human touch makes an unstoppable combination in the marketplace – and the little things you can do to make that easy and powerful.
