WINCHESTER, TN SEPT 2019-Hatchett Insurance Agency is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (ITABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group. 

Each year since 1993, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year. 

Nelson Hatchett, of Hatchett Insurance Agency said ” I feel honored and humbled to be in a group of 267 picked out of 1,300 agencies. Not bad for a little business in Winchester, TN” “I attribute our success to our Lord, our staff and our loyal clients. Without them I wouldn’t be here”. 

More than 1,300 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 267 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories. 

The agency was nominated by either a Big “l” affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence. 

The Best Practices Study was initiated by the Big “l” in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the highest performing agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices. 

The Hatchett agency was founded in 1954 and can offer insurance products from a number of different companies including Allstate, Builders Mutual, Cincinnati, Grange, Hanover, Liberty Mutual, Progressive, Safeco and Travelers
