ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- PointeNorth Insurance Group and Taylor, Turner & Hartsfield Insurance are joining forces.
Effective March 1, 2014, the company will operate as PointeNorth Insurance Group. The merger is the second transaction of the quarter for PointeNorth and continues the insurance agency's strategy of seeking like-minded partners with complementary offerings.
Along with 4,300 plus households and business clients, Taylor, Turner & Hartsfield brings additional locations in Cumming and Dawsonville. Established in 1988, the agency has brought a depth of insurance and financial services expertise in its community-based approach to its clients.
"We share the philosophy of being trusted consultants to our clients," said President Dwight L. Taylor. "Our combined talents and continued commitment to being a locally owned, community-oriented agency make us a formidable presence in Georgia and the Southeast." Taylor will continue as a shareholder and serve as a Senior Vice President of PointeNorth with a focus on Producer and Business Development. He joins PointeNorth with other Taylor, Turner & Hartsfield principal, Mark Verbeke, who will serve as vice president.
"With Taylor, Turner & Hartsfield's community-based approach to serving its constituency, we continue to expand our presence in Georgia, while reinforcing what differentiates us from our peers," said PointeNorth CEO Bill Skeeles.
Taylor, Turner & Hartsfield will continue its operations in Cumming and Dawsonville and PointeNorth will combine its current Alpharetta location with Cumming office in late May 2014.
"PointeNorth Insurance Group is committed to the independent agency system and is positioned to continue to acquire and merge like-minded insurance professionals to become the premier locally owned Independent Agencies in the markets we serve," Skeeles said. "We are focused on accelerating our growth strategy. With capital in place, we create additional opportunities for partnering agencies and their employees."
