VIAA attracts new member agency

Illinois-based Auffenberg Insurance Services has joined Valley Insurance Agency Alliance, a network of more than 120 independent insurance agencies in Missouri and Illinois.

Auffenberg Insurance Services, previously Auffenberg Allstate, was founded in 2012 by co-owners Mike Auffenberg and Nathan Schumacher (pictured). The agency specializes in personal lines and fleet and employee workplace benefits.

“We joined the alliance to form a strategic partnership with a group focused on long-term growth and profitability,” Schumacher said. “Valley Insurance Agency Alliance will be an excellent resource that will open up the right markets for our customers, and we look forward to all we will achieve together.”

Founded in 2006, VIAA generates more than $195 million in annual written premium. It is the regional founding member for the Strategic Insurance Agency Alliance (SIAA).
