About Keystone Insurers Group:
Keystone Insurers Group (KIG) was incorporated in 1983 by four Central Pennsylvania Agencies who joined forces in an increasingly difficult, constricted market. Their number increased with the express purpose of realizing greater opportunities through association than they could realize individually.
While preserving the entrepreneurial spirit of the American Independent Insurance Agent, the founders recognized that as a profitable, productive group, they wielded significant bargaining power, were provided greater opportunities, and could offer a wider array of products and services to customers and the communities in which they lived.
In 1999, Keystone changed its model from a cooperative arrangement to that of a franchisor and rapidly expanded throughout the Commonwealth to over 110 locations.
Astonish is on a mission to change its clients’ lives by changing their business. The company firmly believes the local distribution channel is the greatest asset of the insurance industry and is dedicated to helping this channel (including insurance agencies, firms, and individuals) adapt to the modern landscape of the Internet consumers in order to thrive and not get left behind.
For over half a decade, Astonish has been the leader in providing digital marketing solutions for the insurance industry. Since 2006, Astonish has built a complete insurance digital marketing system. The Astonish system leverages three main arenas to help their clients grow: digital marketing, coaching and training, and the Virtual Profit Center.
At the core of the Astonish system is the Virtual Profit Center (VPC). Astonish designed and developed this proprietary software as an advanced automated Customer Relationship Marketing/Management tool (CRM) specifically for the insurance industry.
Astonish was founded by Adam DeGraide, CEO; Tim Sawyer, President; and John Boudreau, COO. It is headquartered in Rhode Island, with an office in Orlando, Florida. The company employs just over 100 employees and has marketing and sales representatives in more than 20 states.
In addition, the company was recently ranked 267th on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S.
