KorthaseFlinn Acquires Glasser Insurance Agency
Northern Michigan Insurance Firm Further Expands in Gaylord
KorthaseFlinn Insurance and Financial Services (www.korthaseflinn.com) announced today that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Glasser Insurance Agency, Inc. The Glasser Agency has been a fixture in Gaylord since 1938, diligently serving customers throughout Northern Michigan. Effective January 1st the clients of Glasser Insurance will become part of the KorthaseFlinn client family, locally served by Julie Koprowicz and the KF Team at West Main and Wisconsin. According to Randy Flinn, President of KorthaseFlinn, the decision to bring the Glasser Insurance legacy into the KF family made perfect sense. “Whenever we consider accepting a new agency into the KorthaseFlinn family, our first priority is to ensure that the cultures mesh. After one conversation with Julie Koprowicz at the Glasser Agency, I knew we had a match. Julie’s passion for the industry and her care for the clients was immediately apparent. I knew within minutes that her exceptional industry reputation was well-deserved.”
The Glasser Acquisition represents the latest in a series of KorthaseFlinn investments in the Gaylord community. In 2015, the firm joined forces with Jerry Anderson and acquired the Health Insurance agency operated by Anderson since 1985. In 2017, KorthaseFlinn purchased the former Northwestern Bank building on West Main and subsequently opened the newest of the company’s four Northern Michigan offices. With their latest investment, KorthaseFlinn will serve over 1,500 area families and businesses from the Gaylord facility.
