The MAX Enterprise began when ten companies across the U.S. and Canada collaborated with one another to build something brand new for the 21st Century. The original goal was that each company would retain its own identity and MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”, a Kansas reciprocal insurance company) through its attorney-in-fact, MII Management Group, Inc. (“MIIMG”, the services provider employing all staff), would provide the “backroom” products and services needed by the insureds.
Gradually, after MAX and MIIMG began operations in 2001, each of the ten companies, at different time intervals, decided to integrate fully into MAX. However, MAX and MIIMG were formed with the specific intent of allowing any insurance company that wished to retain its own and original identity to do so. The decision to have MIIMG employ their staff members and merge their insured members and resources into MAX was their own organizational decision and not thrust on them.
The MAX Enterprise history is one that was, and still is, committed to keeping a local company’s identity and visibility at the forefront as it provides management and services behind the scene. We lead with service and support as primary goals. We seek to offer services to other insurance companies that are struggling to find the necessary resources to thrive in today’s rapidly changing environment.
The MAX Enterprise has three core values that drive our behaviors and intent in all our business operations: Fair, Faithful and Socially Responsible. The behavioral outcomes of these foundational values mean that we have a deep commitment to local communities; a faithful and care-based approach to our people and our relationships; and an attitude of serving others for mutual benefit and never to the exclusion of the other. We believe there is great synergy between our values and those that are at the heart of smaller insurance companies struggling today.
We also have a deep commitment to giving back to the communities we serve. In 2005, we created our own charitable organization, MAX Share Fund, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charity, to help its stakeholders provide services “beyond the contract”. This Fund is available to all our partners to use in their own communities.
We believe our values and history should reassure any partner using MIIMG’s services of our full intent to respond to their unique needs and keep their own identities and missions strong in the communities they serve. Each partner served by us has the opportunity to choose from a menu of services and continue to hold onto and build their company’s identity and mission. Our first goal is to help our partners thrive, not to grow MAX into a larger organization. Our goal, unlike many strategic partnerships today, is to help our partners grow in their own identity and service to their members and communities.
