Allstate Insurance Co. has launched an aggressive recruitment campaign to sign on 45 new agency owners across Ohio by the end of 2011.

Allstate says it’s targeting successful, self-motivated professionals for a career as an Allstate exclusive agent. Unlike typical entrepreneurships, Allstate says it provides new agents with essential tools and resources to help them get off to a great start, including: insurance product education, expertise from company sales consultants, customizable marketing and advertising materials, and performance incentives. In addition, new and existing Allstate agencies in Ohio are projected to hire about 350 licensed sales professionals through 2011, and training programs are available, says Allstate.

"If you don't have an insurance background, we'll provide you with insurance education to help you hit the ground running,” says Ted Stefanov, Allstate sales leader for Ohio. “In addition, our agents have the independence to run their agency, hire and manage their staff, and set their direction while receiving support from one of the country's largest insurance companies and most respected brands."

Allstate says the agents will have the opportunity to sell the company's wide range of insurance and financial products, including auto, property and financial services, and that ideal candidates should have the skills to run their own businesses, the drive to meet business objectives, and $50,000 in liquid capital to open a new Allstate agency.

Allstate's recruiting goals for Ohio in 2010 are segmented by area across the state: Columbus, Cleveland-Akron, Cincinnati-Dayton, Toledo and Youngstown.
