In 1976, Frank and Janet Kelly started a small health and life insurance agency in the basement of their home. With small businesses having difficulties securing affordable health care benefits, there was a growing need for alternative sources of quality benefit plans. The Kellys’ vision was to form a company that would bring together small businesses through common industry, trade or professional associations and thus form larger groups that could provide them with access to better rates and benefits.
Over the years, the company has become one of the largest and fastest-growing group insurance administrators, brokers and consultants in the Mid-Atlantic region. Today, Kelly & Associates Insurance Group, still owned and operated by the Kelly family, services companies ranging in size from sole proprietors to companies with more than 20,000 employees.
What were the ingredients of this phenomenal growth?
Hard work, honesty, integrity, professionalism, being customer focused and treating employees with dignity and respect. These have been the core foundation of Kelly & Associates Insurance Group for more than 30 years. Each of these elements is achieved through the Kellys’ desire to bring honor and glory to God, as demonstrated by the company's Mission Statement that serves as a standard of measure for all business practices.
It is through an unwavering commitment to excellence that Kelly & Associates Insurance Group has earned the trust of hundreds of brokers, over 13,000 corporate clients and more than 150,000 people across the Mid-Atlantic region.
