President and CEO
EMPIRE INSURANCE GROUP
Age: 34

In 2009, Christine Larson partnered with her parents to start Empire Insurance Group; in 2016, she purchased their shares to become CEO. Under Larson’s leadership, Empire Insurance Group has acquired two agencies and more than doubled in size within the past year.

Specializing in mid-size to large commercial accounts, as well as personal lines and farm insurance, Larson now oversees three locations, working side-by-side with location managers and the operations manager, who also happens to be her husband. “I enjoy working with clients to find their coverage needs, and I also love working on the business,” she says. “In total, I have been in the industry 13 years and anticipate many more!”

Outside of Empire, Larson serves as director at large of the Minnesota Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers Association, president of the North Branch Beautification Association and a member of the North Branch Veterans Memorial Committee. She was also president of the North Branch Chamber of Commerce last year and is a seven-time member of the Atlas Platinum Leaders Circle.
