Christine Larson, Empire Insurance Group
President and CEO
Empire Insurance Group
Christine Larson was inspired to join the insurance industry by her parents, who ran an Allstate agency before opening Empire Insurance Group, their own independent agency. In 2016, Larson took over ownership of the family business as president and CEO and has expanded Empire to a multimillion-dollar-premium agency with 18 employees and three locations in Minnesota.
“I enjoy protecting families and my commercial clients from risks and crafting policies to fit individual needs by utilizing one of my agency’s 60-plus insurance company affiliations,” Larson says. “I also enjoy leading my team and teaching the next generation of insurance advisors to be the elite.”
Over the last 11 years, Larson has received several industry awards, including the 2014 Emerging Leader of the Year Award from the Minnesota Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers Association (MIIAB) and being named to IBA’s 2018 Elite Women and 2019 Top Workplace lists. In 2017, she was elected to the MIIAB board of directors.
“I am excited for the future,” Larson says, “and, as a young female agency owner, will continue to make huge strides and contributions within the industry while continuing to expand my agencies.”
