Today W3 Insurance maintains offices in St. Petersburg and Sarasota, with their headquarters located at 300 First Avenue South in Downtown St. Petersburg. W3 Insurance provides commercial, homeowners, auto, marine and life insurance as well as employee benefits coverage. They are proud to represent an extensive list of ‘A-rated’ insurance companies that offer clients superior protection.
W3 Insurance creates unique value by offering W3 Advantage Risk Management, a proprietary tool that helps clients understand and act upon risks. W3’s overall objective is to make each client a “raving fan,” working to achieve this by leveraging leading-edge technology with nearly a century of experience. The result of this intention is dependable advising, competitive quotes, and highly personalized service.
As a privately-owned company, their core values of integrity, accountability, success and passion guide all the company’s decisions, not outside investors. W3 Insurance strives for a positive work environment, and has been recognized by Insurance Journal, designating them a “Best Agencies to Work for SE USA” Gold Medalist. The Tampa Bay Times has listed W3 Insurance in its “Top Places to Work” edition four times, with the most recent in 2018. Employee wellness, for all 104 employees, is held in high regard at W3. This has been reiterated through The American Heart Association naming the agency a "Fit-Friendly Worksite (GOLD)" three times.
In other recent milestones, W3 was named one of only 19 commercial brokers to achieve Platinum-level status, with A-rated carrier Amerisure. Vault Insurance also selected W3 Insurance as one of its few Florida agent appointments. W3 Employee Benefits has been awarded the Major Health Insurance carriers' highest producer status levels. Achieving these levels has reinforced their strong partnership with carriers like Aetna, Cigna, Florida Blue and United Healthcare, allowing them to offer clients special privileges and programs not available through other agencies.
Wallace Welch & Willingham’s Community Involvement Committee selects and supports nonprofit causes while encouraging a spirit of agency volunteerism. This committee helps to create a culture of selflessness throughout their offices. Recently, employees collected and distributed a company-record 76 backpacks and school supplies to local students. In the spirit of protection, which is at the heart of insurance, the agency donated a bulletproof vest to Blaze - a St. Petersburg Police K-9 officer. W3 Insurance’s involvement with local events like the Thin Mint Sprint, the Tagalong Trot, and the Children’s Dream Fund demonstrate an agency filled with people who genuinely care.
