, a Holland-based insurance provider with locations across Lower Michigan, says it has added 20 new people in the past year and looks to add another five to ten jobs in 2012.
The company has 24 locations from Holland to Port Huron, and each office tends to have its own personality and fills a specific need within its community, says Director of Marketing Carrie Farnum.
"We have a large portfolio of insurance and title clients, so we've added account management staff as the client base grows," Farnum says. "That creates the need for more support in I.T. and administration, and, as a snowball effect, that adds perpetual growth and sales."
In 2003, Farnum says Lighthouse Group had 150 employees. Today it has over 200. And the company has immediate openings in new business sales, account management and a few I.T. positions.
"We have bricks and mortar in all the communities we serve, and we feel that we can't assess community needs unless we have bricks and mortar locations in those communities," Farnum says. "I was in Port Huron yesterday, and [that office] has a totally different feel than in Grand Rapids and Holland."
