Preston-Patterson Launches New Insurance Initiative for Advertising Agencies and Marketing Companies

Press Release

Preston-Patterson Co., Inc., an independent property/casualty insurance agency based in Conshohocken, PA, has launched a new property and casualty insurance initiative targeting advertising agencies, media agencies, digital media businesses, CRM/direct marketing companies, and related businesses. The initiative offers the full range of coverages, including property, general liability, workers’ comp, employment practices liability, and advertising agency professional liability, among others. Preston-Patterson president Stephen Patterson said, “We’ve been insuring broadcasters since 1983 and have in recent years broadened our efforts in providing coverage for cable television channels, digital publishers and related businesses. The common thread has been insuring businesses the mission of which is the creation and/or distribution of content. So further broadening our efforts to include a focus on advertising agencies is a natural progression and a perfect fit.”

The program will provide for the development of quotations from up to a half dozen national insurers for the property, liability, workers’ comp and related coverages and from various national and specialty insurers for the employment practices liability and advertising agency professional liability coverages. Patterson continued, “All of our property, liability, workers’ comp, etc. insurers have exceptional programs targeting advertising agencies. And although it’s a smaller playing field for the employment practices and advertising agency professional liability converges, we are working with the absolute best insurers for these coverages. Our underwriters are really excited about this initiative and are very competitive.”

Coverage availability and pricing are subject to underwriting. Preston-Patterson is licensed in all states and Washington, D.C.
