About Scott Addis

Scott Addis

Scott Addis Leads the Way

Scott Addis serves as the President and CEO of The Addis Group and Beyond Insurance. The Addis Group was founded on Scott’s Beyond Insurance principles 23 years ago, and has evolved into a juggernaut in the industry with more than 1,700 clients, total premiums in excess of $190,000,000 and revenues of over $16,000,000. Scott has personally developed a book of business in excess of $10,000,000 in revenue using the Beyond Insurance process.

Professional Background

Prior to starting the Addis Group in 1990, Scott served as vice president and senior account manager for Johnson & Higgins (now Marsh USA). While there, Scott handled insurance placement for some of Philadelphia’s most prestigious companies and institutions including Comcast Corp., Aqua America, Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, Lukens Steel and U.S. Healthcare. Scott also played a key role in the growth of Johnson & Higgins middle market division.

In 1990, he decided to strike out on his own and formed The Addis Group. No clients. No carriers. No revenue. Only a $50,000 credit line and a vision of providing elite risk management services to the middle-market business segment. The company was truly built from scratch.

The Addis Approach

The benefits of Scott’s innovative approach are extreme customer loyalty, a steady flow of referrals, 99% retention ratio, 90% new business hit ratio, 27% book of business loss ratio and significant awards and recognition. In Scott’s words he enjoys “the home field advantage.”


Scott has served as a member of the American Institute for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter’s Advisory Committee. He has participated on the Boards of The Council of Agents and Brokers, Rough Notes Magazine, National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research and Saint Joseph’s University Academy of Risk Management. Scott also sits on the CPCU Advisory Committee.

Scott is also quite active in Philadelphia Community affairs as he sits on several boards. The Philadelphia Business Journal recognized Scott as one of the region’s most influential business professionals in its Book of Leaders.
