About Southeastern Network Agencies
Southeastern Network Agencies was formed in 2008 by six independent owner agencies serving seven locations throughout Georgia. The original president, Kevin Panter of Kevin Panter Insurance in Blue Ridge, Georgia, brought the six agencies together in late 2007 with the vision of a premier Agent Network that would focus on maximizing profits, strengthening market position and continuously improving agency operations through technology, training and management coaching.
The six independent agencies came together through their past relationships as former top producing exclusive agents. At that time they represented $11,000,000 in premium with an average industry experience of 30 years. Today SNA has 22 members representing combined premium in excess of $53,000,000 and continues to grow every day.
