The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies, in business since 1937, is one of the country’s largest auto insurance groups, the largest seller of motorcycle policies, the market leader in commercial auto insurance and one of the top 15 homeowners carriers, based on premiums written. Progressive is committed to becoming consumers’ number one choice and destination for auto and other insurance by providing competitive rates and innovative products and services that meet customers’ needs throughout their lifetimes, including superior mobile, online and in-person customer service, and best-in-class, 24-hour claims service.
Progressive companies offer consumers choices in how to shop for, buy, and manage their insurance policies. Progressive offers personal and commercial auto, motorcycle, boat, recreational vehicle, and home insurance. We operate our Personal and Commercial Lines businesses through more than 35,000 independent insurance agencies throughout the U.S. and directly from the Company online, by phone, or on mobile devices. Our homeowners business is underwritten by select carriers, including ASI, throughout the United States.
Realizing that Progressive’s success has been achieved through unity and teamwork, we chose “together” as the theme of this year’s annual report. But more than just succeeding, “togetherness” is also about collaboration, having great discussions and debates, challenging each other, and giving respect to each of the over 38,000 Progressive people and our valued agents, as well as forging bonds with our customers and consumers.
To illustrate what “together” means to Progressive, we commissioned artist Nathaniel Parsons to imagine Camp Wanderfall — a series of national park-themed sculptures created with and inspired by Progressive people. During a three-week road trip along Interstate 80, Parsons visited 27 Progressive offices and invited employees to participate in the creation of his sculptural and performance artworks. Additionally, all Progressive people were encouraged to share personal stories of “togetherness,” some of which are featured throughout this annual report. Parson’s Camp Wanderfall will become a permanent installation and collaboration space at Progressive’s office complex in Mayfield Village, Ohio, as well as a compelling addition to our growing collection of contemporary art.
