Find Us On Facebook
I am pleased to announce that our companies now have a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/UnionMutualOfVermont. We debated quite a while as to whether to have one or not, but in the end decided that the extra work in keeping such a page up to date would be offset by an increase in business from agents and policyholders who would appreciate getting to know us better. We may be (and certainly are) “an insurance company,” but more importantly we are the people who run an insurance company, and Facebook will give you a better sense of who we are.
Here’s the opening message on our Facebook page:
Welcome to the Facebook Page for Union Mutual of Vermont Companies, a property and casualty insurance company based in Montpelier, Vermont and begun in 1874. If you’d like to learn about our companies and the products we offer, please go to our website, www.unionmutual.com.
As a mutual insurance company without stockholders, we pride ourselves on close relationships with our policyholders, our agents, and our employees. We at times refer to this as the “Union Mutual family.” The pillars of this family are People (P), Integrity (I), Leadership (L), Long Term Relationships (L), Accountability (A), Results (R), and Service Second to None(S).
We started this Facebook page for a number of different reasons. First, by posting some information about our company and employees, it will give those dealing with us a better idea of who we are. Second, by posting information from our independent agency partners, it will provide you with a sense of our extended network of professionals there to serve you. Third, we will post information that we think can help visitors become better stewards of their property and of their lives. Finally, this page can provide a vehicle for answering questions about our company.
We have established a few rules for this page. We will not post, or reply to any comment, that divulges any personal information about our policyholders. If a response is appropriate, we will seek to do so by the end of the following business day. We reserve the right to remove any post that is not in keeping with the purpose of this page.
If you enjoy this page, we of course encourage you to “like” us or to pass along the link to your friends. Please know that when you do this we have no control what if any Facebook generated ads may accompany this linkage.
On behalf of all of our employees and agents, welcome aboard.
John H “Josh” Fitzhugh
President and Chief Executive Officer
