ATLANTA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Digital Insurance Inc. (www.digitalinsurance.com), the nation’s
leading employee benefits agency specializing in insurance for small businesses and mid-sized companies, is
expanding its local market presence by acquiring top-performing brokerages in U.S. cities.

Digital’s strategic venture is focused on a convergence taking place in the insurance distribution space. Today, well-
capitalized insurance agencies with scale, operational efficiencies and a strong, expanding value proposition are
teaming with community based agencies looking to accelerate their growth. Digital’s ‘agency acquisition model’ does
just that.

“Digital’s agency acquisition model will propel us – and the local agencies we align with – into the next phase of
business growth,” says Adam Bruckman, president and CEO, Digital Insurance. “Looking forward, successful
agencies will need to operate efficiently and be true health care reform experts. Digital is both and is well equipped to
deliver the best customer solutions available in the marketplace. Our people, processes, technology and acquisition
partners will accelerate our growth and profitability.” 

Georgia Benefits, led by Eric Haglund in Lawrenceville, Ga., and Summit Benefits, headed by Jeff Schneiderman in
St. Louis, Mo., are the first two organizations to join Digital under this new model.

“I couldn’t have asked for two better leaders and agencies to serve as the catalyst for this expansion of Digital’s
operations,” says Bruckman. “While Eric, Jeff and their experienced teams are the first, other successful agencies
aren’t far behind. Our goal is to find and align with other top-performing agencies in communities throughout the
country. These agencies understand health care reform will bring changes to our business – changes that will provide
fantastic growth opportunities.

“This is a win-win for everyone involved,” he adds. “Agents secure a cash infusion during a time of industry and
economic uncertainty, their customers receive enhanced services and Digital obtains a leadership position in key
communities.” 

“In the two months I’ve been with Digital, I already know I made the right decision,” says Haglund. “Digital has the
size, resources and power to be attractive to any producer, especially in today’s complex health care reform
environment. Digital is uniquely qualified to not only survive – but prosper – in what I call the perfect storm. I’m glad
to be part of this winning team.”
