How we revamped a 130-year-old insurance brand
After more than 130 years in the insurance industry, it was high time for IMT Insurance to revamp its brand and energize its employees, agents and customers. This would allow us to unify a group of companies – IMT Insurance, IMT Group and Wadena Insurance – under a single, resonant brand. The insurance industry is one of the most competitive in terms of clever and creative marketing, so the stakes were high as we embarked on this corporate marketing project.
