Combined Agents of America Insurance Services Announces New Agency Manager

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Combined Agents of America, LLC (CAA) announced that Lauri Benefiel, CIC, has joined the Texas-based managing general agency as the new agency manager of its CAA Insurance Services (CAAIS) division. With 47 members based in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, CAA is a MGA committed to strengthening the independent insurance agency system through profitable growth and exceptional service for its member agencies.

"Lauri's background in brokerage operations has empowered her to jump in with little training," says Bill Martin, second vice president of CAA and president of Grona Boles Martin Bloxsom Insurance, San Antonio, Texas. "She walked through our doors with already having managed and grown a department to some 40 employees for Heffernan Insurance Brokers. We are excited about the new talent and energy she brings to CAAIS."

Benefiel, who has a background as an operations manager for a large insurance agency, will report directly to CAA's second vice president Bill Martin. Before joining CAA, she worked for Heffernan Insurance Brokers in northern California. Benefiel began her career at The Hartford in underwriting, sales, and finally management in their Select Customer Insurance Center. 

In 2007, CAA opened the doors to CAAIS, a closed brokerage exclusively for member agencies of CAA. This brokerage was developed to provide a solution and a marketplace for many classes of business that cannot be placed with an agency's current carriers. In 2011, CAAIS generated more than $5 million in annual premiums.
