Effective August 1, 2018, The Partners Group (TPG), one of the leading independent insurance agencies in the NW, has expanded in Washington with the addition of McDonald Insurance Group (MIG). McDonald Insurance Group is a Washington independent insurance agency that has specialized in commercial insurance, medical malpractice insurance and personal insurance for more than 25 years.
“We believe McDonald Insurance Group and The Partners Group are better together. The combination of our leading, independent firms, where decisions are made locally, offers a valuable, customer-focused service model,” says Rod Cruickshank, President and CEO of The Partners Group.
“In our industry, independent firms are becoming rare. There seems to be an endless appetite of large public firms to purchase regional independent firms leaving customers with fewer choices. The Partners Group and McDonald Insurance Group are committed to remaining independent for our customers and for our employees. The Partners Group is a legacy firm and this merger supports that vision and accelerates our growth.”
For MIG, the merger with The Partners Group is the result of a long-term desire of MIG to partner with a growing independent firm with aligned marketplace expertise. TPG and MIG each have a long history of serving medical professionals as one of their specialties. “We are excited to merge with TPG – a firm with a strong cultural commitment to customers, employees and the community,” says Frank McAllister, Principal at McDonald Insurance Group.
Frank Radford, also a principal at McDonald Insurance Group agrees. “This merger allows our team to expand the services we offer through a broader set of resources. It is positive for all parties, starting with our customers,” says Radford. “We look forward to providing unmatched service for the next 25 years and beyond as a member of The Partners Group.”
