US specialty insurance broker Alliant Insurance Services has announced the acquisition of Pend Oreille Insurance.
Based in Idaho, Pend Oreille is one of the area’s largest independent insurance agencies and is led by co-owners Stefanie Nostdahl and Jodie Corless.
The company provides an array of regionally focused insurance solutions to its list of clients in Idaho, Montana, California, Arizona, Colorado, and Washington State.
“The Pend Oreille name has long been synonymous with strong service, local expertise, and strong dedication to providing a customized, personal touch,” said Tom Corbett, Chairman and CEO of Alliant.
“The firm’s proven strength across markets will provide an additional layer of strength to our team in the Inland Northwest, further expanding our footprint in the region.”
Pend Oreille’s product offerings include commercial insurance, personal insurance, and health and life insurance services, all backed by a seasoned team of professionals that specialize in each area of focus.
“The Pend Oreille promise is centered upon providing a highly personal approach to serving each of our clients, making the insurance process as simple and cost-effective as possible. Joining Alliant furthers this promise,” said Nostdahl.
“Alliant’s proven history of success here in Idaho, combined with its deep pool of national resources, will play an integral role in our ongoing growth, enabling us to provide an even higher level of service and expertise to our client base,” said Corless.
The agreement with Pend Oreille is part of an active regional acquisition campaign. Since 2014, Alliant has completed a large number of strategic acquisitions in the greater Northwest in both property and casualty and employee benefits.
