VIU by Hub partners with Gonzaga University

After announcing a partnership with Arizona State University, HUB International has picked up another academic partner – Gonzaga University.

As part of the partnership, Gonzaga alumni will receive “trusted advice” when shopping for personal insurance through VIU by Hub. The partnership supports Gonzaga’s Office of Alumni and Friends by generating ancillary revenue to support alumni programs and scholarships.

“We are proud to partner with Gonzaga on a program that will impact past, present and future members of the Zag community. GU alumni benefit from VIU by HUB’s powerful brokerage advice and help build a new source of revenue to support future university endeavors by simply shopping for protection that best fits their needs.” – Bryan Davis, EVP and head of VIU.

“Our alumni are an integral part of the GU community, and their contributions to their alma mater and our world are vast. By partnering with VIU by HUB, we are excited to offer our alumni a service we know they’ll value that has the added benefit of providing a new opportunity for them to contribute to the university they love.” – Kara Hertz, AVP for Alumni and External Relations at Gonzaga University.

Bottom Line I: In the past two months, VIU outperformed Three Insurance in terms of site views (see innovation reports for March and April).

Bottom Line II: Hub is now valued at $23 billion and has a modern narrative in the form of VIU that involves embedded insurance. As we said before mega brokers are turning to transactional insurance.
