Positioned to Thrive

The Greater Omaha market and its insurance companies continue to thrive despite the economic downturn in the country and the industry. Supported by large pillar institutions that are headquartered in the city, such as Berkshire Hathaway, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, Mutual of Omaha, Physicians Mutual and Woodmen of the World, the Omaha insurance industry weathered the tough economic climate of the last year.

While these institutions have been the cornerstone of the community for generations, in 2009 two of these companies reinvigorated their infrastructure with dynamic new developments. Today, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska’s new headquarters building is well underway in the heart of Aksarben Village and Mutual of Omaha’s Midtown Crossing at Turner Park is filling with retailers and activity.

While the largest institutions cemented their role in the Omaha metropolitan area, newer companies decided to take the plunge. In August 2009, Fidelity National Title Group, Inc. opened a large new office in Aksarben Village, and PayFlex Systems—an insurance peripheral company— moved into new office space and added more than 200 employees. Not only is the insurance industry in Greater Omaha weathering the storm, it is positioned to continue to thrive and grow in the coming decades.

Companies like Lincoln Financial Group, AllState Insurance and Pacific Life have established themselves as premier employers and have benefited from the strong regulatory environment and tremendous Nebraska work ethic.

Greater Omaha remains an insurance haven that continues to attract and retain excellent, highly respected institutions.
