AIM continues to value the relationships we have established over the years and this can be attributed to the good relations we experience with the agents we serve in the states of Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland and our friendly, dependable staff. We have produced profitable experiences for our companies most of whom have been with us since 1979.
Most recently AIM has consolidated with Bloss & Dillard, Inc., based out of Huntington, West Virginia. As a Managing General Agent specializing in the placement of insurance products in traditional and challenging risks, AIM presented a strong opportunity for Bloss & Dillard, Inc. to expand their footprint both geographically and through additional markets and expertise. Bloss & Dillard, Inc. has been a colleague of AIM for many decades, and both companies are excited about the acquisition and look forward to continuing a legacy of outstanding service.
Both Bloss & Dillard and AIM offer a wide and diverse variety of specialty and traditional insurance products to independent agents in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia. Planning included the continued operation of the MGA under the AIM name with the consolidation of services occurring in the accounting, marketing and operational management of the new organization. William “Sandy” Jackson will continue in the leadership role of the operation.
Bloss and Dillard, Inc. was founded in 1954 and has grown into a successful insurance enterprise with thousands of clients throughout the Southeastern and Eastern United States. As a Certified Managing General Agent, the Company provides insurance products and services to Independent Agents in many traditional and non-traditional markets.
