Young Professionals of Seattle and PEMCO Announce Strategic Partnership

SEATTLE, WASH., Nov. 1, 2017 — Young Professionals of Seattle (YPOS), a dba of YPG, LLC,  the largest professional network on the west coast, announced today a strategic partnership with PEMCO Insurance, the Northwest’s largest local personal-lines insurer.  The partnership between YPOS and PEMCO will more seamlessly produce and refine products that are inline with the needs of Seattle’s 20 and 30 somethings.  

PEMCO places high importance on giving back to local communities. They’re committed to supporting their Northwest neighbors through corporate donations and partnerships.  They also have a wealth of industry knowledge that will allow PEMCO to join in on some of the YPOS-ProDev (professional development) sessions to offer up some insights on things like driverless cars, telematics, the sharing economy, and how companies are facing the challenges of a rapidly changing market to the young professional audience.

“Headquartered in South Lake Union, they’re local, and serving Washington and Oregon residents. This means they can commiserate with us on the frustrations of the ‘Mercer Mess’ or a string of 100 gray days, and share our adoration for that perfect Northwest summer day.”  Said Jamie Shindler, VP of Sales and Marketing at YPOS.  Shindler added, “so, how can they help us?  Get the boring image of insurance out of your head and think about coverage for your evolving everyday needs – like ridesharing or home-sharing. Of course, they still have you covered with the classics like home, auto, and renters (yes, you need this) insurance, but don’t think of them as just another insurance company.”

“At YPOS, we’re always looking for community partners that provide value to our members and have similar values to our own. We’re excited to announce that we’ve found one in our newest partner, PEMCO Insurance”, commented Ahmad Corner, President and Founder of YPOS.  “You may know PEMCO as the socks-and-sandals guys, or the blue-tarp campers. They like to think of themselves as being a little different.  Just like us, they live, work, and play in the Northwest but have been doing so since 1949.”
