  • Contribute to the revitalization of Detroit and become a resource to the community as a training ground for minorities who are interested in the insurance business
Rationale
Lewis & Thompson has always been a source for solid insurance coverage for minority businesses. It also has a history of service to non-profit organizations and public entities. With the aid of the Strategic Alliances we have established, we can now better serve the larger, more complex accounts, such as major city programs, schools, hospitals, and manufacturing operations.
  • The city of Detroit is experiencing growth in new construction. A portion of that construction work will go to minorities. The insurance should be written through a minority insurance agency. Lewis & Thompson Agency is one of the largest minority-owned independent property-casualty agency in Detroit.
  • A viable minority-owned insurance agency is a necessity for the continued economic growth in Detroit’s African-American community.
  • The agency's knowledge of the insurance industry and the insurance-buyer will continue to serve it well into the future.
