Alfred Padway was a CPCU with an independent insurance agency in Wisconsin when he moved to California. After a brief experience with a personnel agency, he knew that there was a better way. In 1970 he formed IPS, a personnel agency just for the insurance industry. His wife Esther, formerly a school principal, joined Al and organized the operations with a combination of human warmth and no-nonsense efficiency gained from her years in education.
Al and Esther are gone now, but IPS is still in the family and still based on their principles and their long-term view of relationships. Ethical standards are paramount. Many of our original customers are still loyal after over 40 years. One of the most common comments from visitors to our office is how different, how comfortable and humane it is.
We understand insurance, and we understand the insurance business.
There are few if any major brokerages in our area that don't have IPS candidates on staff.
Simply put, there is no better possibility of making a good personnel match than by working with IPS. Coupled with decades of contacts, marketing, advertising, and networking in the industry, IPS strives to add value beyond the raw resumes and blind referrals of other personnel firms or methods.
After many years, we are still matching the best to the best in the Insurance Industry. – less
