North Risk Partners Acquires Roth Insurance in Annandale

St. Paul, Minn. (Oct. 3, 2016) – North Risk Partners, one of the largest independent insurance agencies in Minnesota, has acquired Roth Insurance Agency, a 59-year-old agency based in Annandale, Minn. The deal, effective Oct. 1, grows North Risk to 15 locations statewide, from Roseau in the North to Rochester in the South.

“Our focus has always been, first and foremost, customer care,” says Greg Roth, owner of Roth Insurance Agency and its affiliate Greg Roth Agency. “By joining North Risk Partners we are confident this mission will be served and enhanced for many years to come.”

Roth has operated the Annandale agency alongside his wife Audrey Roth since 2002 when the two purchased the business from Roth’s father, William Roth. In their new partnership with North Risk Partners, both will remain in sales roles based in Annandale and gain client servicing support from North Risk’s St. Cloud office.

The Roth family’s long history of serving clients in the Annandale area was a selling point for North Risk Partners President and CEO Chris Meidt.

“Greg and Audrey are true professionals,” says Meidt. “Adding them to our team will make the North Risk Partners brand even stronger, and the markets, value-added services, and support we provide will help them grow their business. We look forward to a wonderful long-term future together.”
