IRVING, TX -- Allstate Insurance Company is launching a recruitment campaign to appoint 100 new agency owners in Texas this year. Allstate agency owners are also actively searching for qualified candidates to fill more than 1200 sales professional positions in agencies across the state. 

"Texas continues to see population expansion in cities across the state, which presents opportunities for small business owners to protect and serve families in those communities," said David Campbell, Allstate's Texas Strategic Deployment Leader.  

Allstate is seeking entrepreneurs with an enthusiasm to own and operate their own business in Texas and make an impact in their community.

"Candidates don't need an insurance background. We'll provide them with comprehensive education and the resources to help them get off to a solid start," Campbell said. "They do need a strong entrepreneurial drive and passion to help others and their community. The ideal candidate wants to build a legacy they can pass down for generations."

Allstate agency owner Eric Douglas opened his agency in the Dallas/Fort Worth area one year ago and has already seen tremendous success. Douglas has always been a small business owner, but was drawn to Allstate because of the opportunity for long-term stability it provides.

"Being an Allstate agent is the best opportunity for the entrepreneur who, like me, needs structure but is willing to be creative and take risks to grow their business," Eric Douglas said. "With the marketing and brand support Allstate provides - the opportunities are limitless."

Newly appointed Allstate agency owners, along with current agents, could help generate 1200 additional jobs in their communities across the state as they typically hire licensed sales staff to help them run their small businesses.

Licensed sales professionals help Allstate agencies grow, working side by side with agency owners to assist customers to help them meet their insurance needs. That's why Allstate encourages more than 1200 agency owners to hire top notch staff.
