Effective Jan. 1, employee benefits insurance agency Bernie Lowe & Associates, Inc. (BLA) of Grinnell, Ia. joined North Risk Partners.
BLA’s Grinnell office has become one of four offices North Risk has in Iowa; our other locations include Bettendorf, Hiawatha, and West Des Moines.
“We are thrilled to join an organization that not only expands the coverages and services we are able to provide our clients, but also one that places the utmost importance on service to their clients, community, and one’s teammates,” says Skip Lowe, who owned BLA since 1999 after purchasing the agency from his father.
Joining North Risk Partners grows BLA’s capabilities to now include property and casualty solutions. Business clients also now have access to our firm’s value-added services in the areas of human resources, health and safety, and more.
“The service-focused culture Skip and the rest of the Bernie Lowe team have built is a great fit for what we stand for at North Risk,” says Dan Seemuth, president of North Risk’s division in Iowa. “We look forward to a great future with the Bernie Lowe team, which will include further growing North Risk’s already strong foundation in the area of employee benefits and health care compliance, as well as our firm’s presence in Iowa and across the Upper Midwest.”
The BLA office continues to be located at 615 Horseshoe Dr., Suite G in Grinnell, where its team of benefits insurance professionals continue to serve BLA clients.
