Inszone Insurance acquires Colorado-based Sheridan Insurance | Insurance Business America
Inszone Insurance Services has announced its acquisition of Sheridan Insurance, marking Inszone’s 10th deal in the state of Colorado as the insurer continues to expand across the country.
Remarking on Sheridan Insurance’s acquisition, Jim Sheridan, who founded the company in 1987 in Aurora, Colorado, said it was important to him that the customers Sheridan Insurance had worked with for so many years would be well taken care of.
“I firmly believe that Inszone Insurance will take good care of them,” he said.
Jim Sheridan’s career in insurance began in 1983, when he worked for Mutual of Omaha, before he ventured out on his own and founded Sheridan Insurance four years later. Starting out, Sheridan Insurance specialized in employer, individual health, life, disability, and supplemental benefits insurance. It quickly evolved into a household name within the Aurora, Colorado community.
“We are excited to bring Sheridan Insurance into the Inszone Insurance family,” said Inszone CEO Chris Walters. “This acquisition provides our 10th acquisition in the state of Colorado, which is another incredible milestone in our expansion throughout the state.”
Just last year, Inszone announced its acquisition of another well-established Colorado brokerage, B-W Insurance Agency.
Inszone said that Sheridan Insurance customers could expect to receive the same calibre of service and attention they received in the hands of Sheridan, except with Inszone’s additional resources and manpower. Inszone will support Sheridan Insurance customers’ commercial, personal, and benefits insurance needs from its location in Lakewood, Colorado.
Inszone Insurance Services was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Sacramento, California. It is a full-service brokerage supplying property & casualty insurance as well as employee benefit solutions across the country. Since its establishment, Inszone has expanded to close to 40 locations across the states of Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, Colorado, Illinois, and California through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions.
The company continues to look forward to further expanding throughout the United States.
