ACUITY announced its 2015 growth results, reporting an overall gain of nearly $90 million in total

written premium. The amount represented a 7 percent increase over 2014 and brought ACUITY’s

revenue to an all-time high of $1.33 billion for the year.

“Over the past 16 years, ACUITY has grown 250 percent faster than the insurance industry. In the past

48 months alone, our company added nearly $500 million to its top-line revenue,” said ACUITY

President and CEO Ben Salzmann.

ACUITY achieved significant growth across all lines of business and throughout the company’s

operating territory in 2015. The insurer wrote over $200 million in new business for the fourth straight

year, driven by increases in both personal and commercial lines. In personal lines, ACUITY achieved

double-digit growth and marked an incredible 19th consecutive year of premium gain. In commercial

lines, the company set a new record for percentage of quotes that became issued policies.

As a result of ACUITY’s continued strong growth, the company added 135 staff members in 2015 and

plans to hire 120 more over the next six months. After the latest round of staffing is completed, ACUITY

will have hired 700 employees over just a five-year span. The company is poised to continue its growth

in 2016 due to the company’s competitive strengths and market positioning.

“ACUITY’s financial success in 2015 is a direct result of the efforts of our dedicated staff and trusted agency

force,” said Wally Waldhart, Vice President – Sales and Communications. “We are extremely grateful to all

our people for helping us achieve another record-setting year, and we look forward to continued success in

2016.”
