TEN YEARS OF HAGERTY MAGAZINE

I can hardly believe it’s been 10 years since we published the first issue of Hagerty magazine. At the time I felt like a little boy with a new puppy. It was only 24 pages, had just two feature stories, and advertising was still in our future. But with lots of great four-color photography, it was a real magazine going out to almost 100,000 clients. More importantly, it was our magazine. We needed it partly because when people asked what industry we were in, I’d never say it was the insurance business; I told them we were in the “car business.” And if that magazine wasn’t proof, nothing was.
