Sheboygan-based property and casualty insurer ACUITY today announced it will hire 150 employees in 2015, driven by continuing business growth.
The company will add the new employees at its Sheboygan headquarters and across its 23-state footprint. The open positions include underwriters, software developers and technical support staff, business analysts, claims staff, customer service representatives and premium auditors.
ACUITY has more than 1,000 employees, manages more than $3 billion in assets and generates more than $1.2 billion in revenue through its 1,000 independent agencies. Last year, it reached $1.2 billion in written premium, up 11 percent over 2013.
The company is in the midst of a 240,000-square-foot addition to its corporate headquarters to hold its growing workforce.
“We are increasing our staff not only to respond to our strong growth, but as an investment in our future,” said Ben Salzmann, ACUITY president and chief executive officer. “We need to be certain to have the people and resources in place to maintain our level of world-class service to a growing number of families, individuals, and businesses.”
