History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Progressive Corporation page on 6 May 2017, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Progressive Corporation is one of the largest providers of car insurance in the United States. The company also insures motorcycles, boats, RVs and commercial vehicles, and provides home insurance through select companies. Progressive has expanded internationally as well, offering car insurance in Australia. The company was co-founded in 1937 by Jack Green and Joseph M. Lewis, and is headquartered in Mayfield Village, Ohio.

Progressive was founded in 1937 by Joseph Lewis and Jack Green as Progressive Insurance Company. Starting in 1956, the company found its niche insuring more risky drivers. In 1987, the sum of the company's written premiums breached $1 billion. In 2016, that number crossed the $20 billion mark. It has generally attempted to live up to its name by being innovative in the industry. It boasts being the first auto insurance company to have a website, allow customers to purchase policies via that site, and later to pioneer allowing the use of mobile browsers and smartphone apps for rating and managing policies. It was also the first to offer 24/7 claims reporting. As it has grown, Progressive has sought to be a one-stop insurance provider for families in order to more competently compete with other top-insurers.
