Acquisitions are always exciting. They indicate growth, strength and a sense of trust between two companies. We’re proud that agencies all across the mid-Atlantic region are turning to Element Risk when it comes time to sell. We’ve worked hard to establish our reputation as an organization that agency owners can trust to take good care of their business and their employees.
Let’s talk a little bit about those employees. Employees are an incredibly valuable asset that too many firms overlook as part of insurance agency acquisitions. But the value isn’t lost on us! In our most recent acquisition alone, Element Risk gained over 100 years of insurance experience in the employees that joined our team. That expertise benefits Element Risk clients across the area as our offices work together to provide the best products and service possible.
The first new acquisition we’ve welcomed is Henderson Insurance of Harrisburg, PA. Founded by Jim Henderson in 1978, the agency has served the central Pennsylvania community for over 40 years. Jim and his staff will continue to serve clients from their office at 3280 Walnut Street in Harrisburg, PA. We are delighted to have them aboard!
We’ve also recently acquired Our Legacy Insurance of Front Royal, VA. Our Legacy was founded by sisters Michelle Davis and Renee Athey, who followed in their father’s insurance footsteps. Their agency enjoyed an excellent reputation as a family business that always went above and beyond to help their clients. Element Risk will continue to provide that same level of customer service from our existing office at 701 Warren Ave in Front Royal, VA.
As Element Risk continues to grow, we remain deeply committed to staying small. That may seem like a contradiction, but it’s an important balance we strive to maintain. We want to be big enough to offer a wide variety of products and the latest technology. But we also want to be small enough that clients know they can call us any time and get immediate, person-to-person insurance advice. We trust we’re striking that balance and are committed to keeping it that way.
