Seeman Holtz Property & Casualty has announced the acquisition of Wisconsin-headquartered Schwarz Insurance Agency. The agency is based in Prairie du Sac, Wis., with six other offices across the state.
Kathy Schwarz, an employee of the agency since 1987 and a co-owner since 1993, has been named a partner and CEO of the agency as a Seeman Holtz division.
The family-owned Schwarz Insurance Agency was founded 95 years ago and has grown to be one of Wisconsin’s leading independent insurance agencies. It offers personal and commercial insurance, administering more than $100 million in premiums.
“I’ve always been proud of the fact that both employees and clients stay here forever,” Kathy Schwarz said. “The incredible loyalty makes everyone here feel like family. I’ve known these people my whole life. There are people who have worked here since I was a teenager. The Schwarz family is much bigger than the people who share my last name.”
The acquisition strengthens Seeman Holtz Property & Casualty’s foothold in the Midwest.
“We’re proud and excited to bring Kathy and her successful and talented team into our family,” said Marshal Seeman, president of Seeman Holtz Property & Casualty.
“The addition of the Schwarz Insurance Agency gives us the regional knowledge, carrier relationships, and most importantly, the client relationships to dominate the Midwest,” said Eric Holtz, Seeman Holtz executive vice president.
