Elephant Insurance Opening New Office in Carrollton; First in Texas
Elephant Auto Insurance, the 8th fastest growing Property and Casualty insurer in the US (2015), has announced the company is opening its first office in Texas. The company has selected 23,000 square feet of office space in Carrollton as its first Texas location outside of their Richmond, Va. headquarters.
“Elephant is an innovative, growing company that is a perfect complement to Carrollton’s business-office community,” said Carrollton Mayor Matthew Marchant. “It is a great alignment between Elephant and the city of Carrollton. With the city’s economic climate, geography, and deep local employee pool, the company’s growth is poised for success. We are pleased to welcome Elephant Auto Insurance to the Carrollton community.”
The company, which provides direct-to-consumer auto insurance, is expected to open the new office in Carrollton in February and will be hiring locally.
"It's a pleasure to announce this investment in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where the labor force is well educated, friendly, hard-working, honest, analytical, and creative," Kevin Chidwick, CEO of Elephant, said in a statement. "We are excited to start recruiting for our brand new office in Carrollton, helping people build a long and rewarding career with Elephant.”
As part of the new Texas opening, Elephant is expanding its advertising into the Dallas-Fort Worth area with a new campaign featuring country star and Texas native Josh Abbott.
“DFW is big, and Elephant Auto Insurance fits right in,” Abbott says in the company’s new commercial. “They offer DFW drivers great rates and provide the kind of customer service you can only find deep in the heart of Texas.”
Greg Minkler, Director of Marketing at Elephant, explained, “With our new Texas office opening in February, we want to take advantage of having a local presence and let Texans know that we’re not just a Virginia company – we are Texans, too.”
