Safford, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/30/2016 -- Gila Insurance Group LLC announced today the acquisition of International Insurance Group, Inc's (IIG) US operations. The acquisition included IIG's RV Insurance, manufactured home insurance, and Covered Investor (specialty dwelling insurance) divisions.
Derek Kartchner, President of Gila Insurance, had previously been the Vice President of Business Development for IIG. In that role he had direct responsibility for the US operations. Also joining the Gila Insurance team is Rachael Galiano, who had been an employee of IIG, and had worked in these divisions for nearly 8 years.
Derek commented about the announcement, "We are excited about this acquisition. On one hand we feel that the change will allow us to provide a new focus on these divisions, which will allow us to better serve our clients. On the other we kept key elements of the old team that will allow us to continue to have the relationship that we have built up with our clients in the past."
The new focus is already paying dividends for Gila clients. "One of the first things we did was invest in software help us monitor the policies of our clients. We are now able to see, before the client does, if there will be any change in their rates when the policy renews. It allows us to be more proactive in helping keep their insurance costs down, and really that's what it's all about."
Kartchner expects a seamless transition. Gila Insurance Group has already been able to contract with IIG's main insurance company partners, and will continue to offer multiple insurance options to ensure competitive pricing and specialized coverage. With the change Gila Insurance Group will also be able to provide new product offerings including traditional home and auto insurance, but their focus will remain on real estate investors, manufactured homes and RVs.
