Steve Anderson Background

Steve wears many hats these days. He has been a licensed independent agent for over 35 years and is Executive Editor of The Anderson Agency Report (TAAR), a monthly newsletter that is the ultimate cheat sheet for future proofing your agency. Each issue focuses on providing independent agents with the insurance technology information they need to manage and grow their agencies more effectively. He is also president of The Anderson Network, Inc. which was formed to help agents and brokers maximize productivity and profits using practical technology.

Working as a manager and producer in two different independent agencies (one belonging to his father-in-law!) has provided him with a practical understanding of internal agency operations, marketing and sales management, and how an agency can most effectively use technology. Over the years he has handled a full range of clients, specializing in the larger commercial accounts, and continues to maintain his license.

Steve received his Bachelor of Arts with a double major in business administration and economics from Taylor University and a master’s degree in Insurance Law from Antioch School of Law.

Steve was thrust into the insurance business when his father-in-law, a sole proprietor of an independent agency, became ill and needed help. He received his insurance training at a major insurance company as a commercial underwriter and after a short time joined his father-in-law’s agency. He carved his niche by receiving post-graduate training in computers, sales training and the practical application of direct response marketing principles.

Steve is a prolific writer who is known for his knack for translating “geek speak” into easily understood concepts. He has written articles for virtually every industry publication. He is Dean of the School of Technology for the IIABA Virtual University and a member of the national faculty of the National Alliance.
