Hagerty was founded in Traverse City and continues to grow here. The Grand Traverse Region has been wonderful for Hagerty as a business. The quality of life is a major retention and attraction asset for employees. Building and maintaining that quality of life is everybody’s responsibility, which is one reason for Hagerty’s corporate social responsibility program, and theiremployees’ long-standing commitment to community involvement.
In addition to its traditional strengths in tourism and agriculture, the Grand Traverse region is poised for additional growth in scalable manufacturing and technology. We can encourage this growth by coalescing around a common vision of success, identifying ways to increase supportive industries, including lawyers, accountants and IT support, and supporting the continued growth of peer networks and mentoring opportunities.
