Farmers Insurance has introduced a new AgencyPoint in Cincinnati that will act as an agency recruitment and training center for candidates looking to become Farmers independent business owners. The new center is located in Mason, Ohio, off Parkway Drive and Mason-Montgomery Road.

Scott Stice, senior vice president of Farmers Eastern market operations, said that AgencyPoint will be staffed with highly trained Farmers employees to offer intensive hands-on training to candidates who will become successful Farmers agents.

Mr Stice added: We will follow the opening of these AgencyPoints with additional ones in most states across the eastern US beginning early next year.

In addition to the AgencyPoint facilities, Farmers will continue to recruit and train new agents through its existing district managers as well.

Mark Reynolds, director of AgencyPoint in Cincinnati, said the addition of AgencyPoint will allow Farmers to take on 150 new agents in Ohio and 75 of them in the Cincinnati area this year.
