Acuity to add jobs by expanding territories

Sheboygan-based Acuity announced it is open for business in Wyoming and Montana and has begun appointing agents in those states.

Acuity announced that strong, sustained business growth has created employment opportunities for 75 new team members at its corporate headquarters and throughout its 22-state operating region.

Acuity has achieved double-digit revenue growth over the past two years and sustained growth for over a decade. In 2012, the insurer reported a $143 million gain in written premium revenue, which is a 17.1 percent increase over the previous year. ACUITY’s growth is creating employment opportunity as the company responds to current needs and prepares for continued expansion.

“We are looking to fill 75 professional positions in the coming months, which is one of the largest groups we have recruited,” said Lynn Coady, Acuity vice president of human resources. ACUITY’s needs include processors and underwriters, programmers and technical support staff, claims professionals and more.

“We are seeking — and finding — the best of the best at college campuses throughout Wisconsin and neighboring states,” said Coady. “We also have an unprecedented number of managerial opportunities within Acuity as a result of our continued growth.”

“Our entry into Montana and Wyoming means that individuals, families, businesses, and employees will have a new resource to turn to for their financial protection,” said Acuity president and CEO Ben Salzmann. “We come to these two states with an attitude to write business, the capacity to take it on, and the financial strength to support our commitment of enhancing and protecting the well-being of our customers.”
