America One Insurance
America One Insurance is one of the largest independent agency franchise organizations in Michigan, and the brainchild of its founding partners, Cloyd Barnes, Robert Lecy, Clayton Metz and Tony Thias, in 1979. Their original goal was to give independent agencies a unique competitive advantage: access to a much wider range of underwriting resources and support services than agencies could tap on their own. That goal is still viable today... maybe even more so. In 2000, seeing an opportunity to increase member profitability and offer self-autonomy, America One Insurance became a franchisee-owned organization. Today it is a fluid, cutting-edge machine – tracking trends, planning for and adapting to change in the insurance field, and continuing to provide an ever-increasing array of support services to its member agencies.
