Clegg - FLbizobservMove on up

By Anita Todd | Contributing Writer – Friday, November 13, 2015

Insurance executive Ryan Clegg took a big gamble in 2010: He ditched a good job at insurance giant Brown & Brown to launch his own firm — even with the economy mired in uncertainty.

Turns out that was the best time for Clegg to make the move.

The company, Clearwater-based Clegg Insurance Group, has experienced consistent growth, posting a 45% increase in net income this year; the firm doesn’t release specific annual sales figures. To accommodate the growth, the company is finalizing the purchase of a nearly 4,000-square-foot building in the Morton Plant district of downtown Clearwater (Read More).

CLEARWATER, Fla. – As Clegg Insurance Group enters their sixth year of business, the company has once again exceeded their previous annual revenue figures, and now plans to expand their presence in the Clearwater community.

Despite a soft market and insurance rates dropping as much as 65 percent, Clegg Insurance Group has experienced consistent growth. This year alone, the Florida-based insurance agency headquartered in Clearwater has seen a 45 percent increase in net income.

As a result of their continued growth, Clegg Insurance Group is finalizing the purchase of a nearly 4,000 square-foot building located in the Morton Plant district of downtown Clearwater. They are scheduled to close on the building in December and begin renovating the space with plans to move into it by July of 2016.

“We are excited about the strides that we have made this year and are looking forward to completing the renovations of our new Clearwater office, which will give us even more room to expand,” said Ryan Clegg, chief executive officer of Clegg Insurance Group. “Our growth this year has been 100 percent organic and is a demonstration that clients are choosing us because of our ability to save them money on their insurance needs.”

Clegg Insurance created three jobs this year and is currently looking to fill three more newly created positions. Applicants are encouraged to visit CleggInsurance.com to learn more.

While Clegg Insurance did not make any acquisitions in 2015, they are constantly looking to expand their business through acquisitions. In 2013, Clegg Insurance acquired Florida Insurance Partners in Safety Harbor, and in 2014 they acquired Hopf & Hopf, a Tampa-based insurance firm.

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Clegg Insurance Group is on track to exceed their previous annual revenue figures for a fifth year in a row, despite the existence of a soft market throughout the insurance industry for more than two years.

Since May of 2013, the Florida-based insurance agency headquartered in Clearwater has experienced a 240 percent growth in revenue. During the same period of time, insurance rates decreased.

“As of right now, I’m excited to say that we’re closing in on our initial benchmark goal of $10 million in insurance premiums,” said Ryan Clegg, chief executive officer of Clegg Insurance Group. “I have no doubt that we’ll continue to grow, despite the current market conditions.”
