Manning Insurance, Delivering A Holistic Approach To Insurance For 30 Years:

Insurance can be complicated, but it doesn’t need to be, says Richard Manning, CEO and self-described “grandpa” of Manning Insurance.

“Insurance is complicated. There are many types of personal insurance and there are many types of business insurance,” Manning said. “Our business model is to walk people through both the personal side and the business side of insurance, making sure that they have all the options and that they are the decision makers.”

This emphasis on customer service through person-to-person communication is how Manning’s company empowers the customer. They go out of their way, literally, to make sure that you feel at home with their insurance.

“We can come to your home, home office, or a Starbucks and have a cup of coffee and talk,” said Manning.

The company goes above and beyond to make sure that their customers don’t feel like numbers or statistics, but are spoken to and treated like people – something that is very refreshing and in need of in the current business climate.

“I try not to make it an official read-down-a-checklist kind of thing,” he said. “It’s more conversation. And it should be more of a conversation than it should be a following of a checklist and we want to make sure that [the customers] fully understand it. So if I’m mentioning some acronym, which there are millions of, I want to make sure that they understand it. I want to make sure you know the difference between a co-pay and co-insurance, or a Medicare supplement and a Medicare advantage, or I don’t want to leave without you understanding that.”

It is that personal and holistic approach to insurance that really separates them from other insurance companies and is part of a better way to understand and purchase insurance.

“I started almost 30 years ago, and I’ve always gone out and seen what [businesses] have,” Manning said. “You notice things like ‘you’re vastly over insured on your business property’ – stuff like that which the customer may not even think about. When you go to a company and talk, you can get an idea of what they are expecting or what they want from their insurance company or should they consider self insurance”

Manning describes the whole process as “like making a friend” and Manning Insurance has been doing just that, making friendships that have lasted generations, “serving kids and grandkids of [their] original clients.”
