NORTHUMBERLAND, PA - August 28, 2013 – Keystone Insurers Group, one of the nation’s largest property and casualty insurance brokers, welcomes Covington, Tenn.-based agency Jamieson & Fisher Inc. as its 21st franchise partner in the state. The announcement was made today by Jamieson & Fisher President Ed Kaiser and Keystone Tennessee Vice President Michele Bicknell.
“I had originally declined to accept the invitation to meet with Keystone Insurers Group because I did not want to give up my independence,” noted Kaiser. “After hearing the Keystone story from some of my friendly competitors who had joined Keystone, I requested the meeting. Knowing that we can keep our independence and benefit from Keystone’s broad range of support and markets that they offer for our staff and our clients is a win-win.”
“As Tennessee becomes a mature state for Keystone, we are thrilled to have Jamieson & Fisher on board,” said Bicknell. “This agency has strong roots in the industry and maintains a stellar reputation in the state. They are a perfect fit with Keystone Insurers Group.”
