Hello! My name is Jeff, Founder and CEO of Forge3.
Before starting Forge3 in 2004, I began my career with an insurance agency my dad ran called Personal Lines Insurance Brokerage (PLI). It was a large, wholly-owned subsidiary of Chubb with more than 300 employees across 30 field offices. It was later sold to HUB International.
I learned so much while there. I had a front-row seat to both the carrier and agency side of the insurance business and worked on web projects, agency management system integrations, and other marketing projects. This became the foundation of Forge3.
I saw many of my insurance agency friends struggling to understand and use the web, apps, and digital marketing. I wanted to do something about it, so Forge3 was born!
Today, our ActiveAgency website platform is the foundation for insurance agencies across the country and around the world. They rely on us to keep up with the latest digital marketing trends, strategies, and tools so they can focus on handshakes, referrals, and growing their book of business.
This is why I love to do keynote speaking presentations, educational sessions, and live webinars. It’s so rewarding and gratifying to inspire the next generation of agency principals, producers, and support staff. The insurance landscape is changing. It’s time to change with it!
Backed by education. Powered by passion.
Our business is not reliant on speaking fees, so it’s one way we can give back and inspire the next generation.
