John Tiene, CEO, Agency Network Exchange
AGENCY NETWORK EXCHANGE
In the last year, Agency Network Exchange [ANE] has grown aggressively, adding 15 new agencies and strengthening relationships with national and regional carriers. Over the past six years, ANE agencies have written more than $100 million in new business to partner carriers.
As ANE’s CEO, John Tiene has championed this rapid growth, building a diverse agency network that includes ethnic and culturally focused agencies, and directing programs to exchange ideas and resolve issues with carriers. Tiene has also embraced technology platforms that help ANE agents innovate, incorporating online portals and web-based systems to help agents add value and strengthen relationships with clients.
With more than three decades of industry experience, Tiene is committed to promoting the independent agency because he believes it is the strongest channel for insurance distribution. ANE is made up of more than 60 independent insurance agencies across New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland, responsible for over $500 million in annual premiums
