The company said it will be hiring processors and underwriters, software developers and technical support staff, business analysts, claims staff, customer service representatives, premium auditors, and more.

After this latest round of staffing is completed, Acuity will have hired 700 employees over a five-year period. The company says it is now the 61st largest property and casualty insurance company in the nation and it is on track to reach a new record in revenue in 2015. The company says it generates more than $1.3 billion in annual revenue through 1,000 independent agencies, and manages over $3.5 billion in assets.

Acuity is also building a 240,000-square-foot addition to its corporate headquarters to accommodate staff expansion.

“Growth continues to create opportunity at Acuity, not only for new hires who are looking for rewarding work but also for our current employees who seek to advance in their careers,” said Ben Salzmann, president and CEO. “Our hiring reflects Acuity’s faith in our future, because we are staffing proactively to have the people and resources in place to serve a growing customer base of families, individuals, and businesses.”
