McGowan-Stitt earns senior partner designation

By Jeff Ireland

McGowan-Stitt Insurance in Covington, Munford and Millington – formerly McBride & Stitt Insurance and McGowan Insurance – has earned the senior partner designation from Grange Insurance, placing the agency in an elite group. The honor recognizes Grange's independent agent partners for their excellent partnership and performance, the corporation said. 

Prior to their merger earlier this year, both the McBride & Stitt and Bill McGowan agencies were Grange partners for more than 20 years. Less than 300 of Grange's 3,600 agencies have earned senior partner status, making McGowan-Stitt among the top 12 percent of all Grange agents. 

"Senior partner designation means the agency is in the top tier of Grange partners based on profitability, premium volume and growth," said Tom Welch, Grange's president and CEO. "McGowan-Stitt is a terrific example of a high-performing agency and how independent agents  provide the best option for people looking to protect what's important to them. They are big contributors to our success and we thank them for their dedication and partnership."
