Dixie Leavitt Agency and Hunt-Leavitt Insurance Agency will merge their benefits operations to create a new entity, Leavitt Group Benefits Services of Southern Utah. The Property & Casualty (P&C) operations in the existing agencies will not be affected by the merger, and they will continue to operate as separate entities. Each of these agencies is a Leavitt Group affiliate.
The two agencies are creating Leavitt Group Benefits Services of Southern Utah to combine their experience in employee benefits and create a full service group benefits firm. The Leavitt Group’s Benefits Division will also participate in the merger, and will provide ongoing support to the agency, such as additional products, Cobra administration, and human resource department training and consulting. The new operation will be housed in the Hunt-Leavitt Insurance Agency, in their new location at: 162 N. 400 E. Bldg C, Suite 102 St. George, Utah(next door to Designer Furniture Gallery.)
“Our clients will have access to more comprehensive benefit packages, and services.” says Jaron Hunt, managing principal of Hunt-Leavitt Insurance Agency. “They will also be able to develop and manage their benefits program, through one agency organization.”
“With the addition of Leavitt Group Benefits Services of Southern Utah to our organization, we can more fully meet the health, life and employee benefits needs of our clients, both for group plans and individuals,” says Russell Fitzwater, co-owner of Dixie Leavitt Agency.
Each agency involved in the merger has a long history of service in the Southern Utah area. Dixie Leavitt Agency was founded in 1952 by Dixie Leavitt. As the agency grew and partnered with other insurance agencies, Dixie Leavitt created the Leavitt Group. Hunt-Leavitt Insurance Agency was formed as a Leavitt Group agency in 1995 by Jaron Hunt. As a multi-line agency, Hunt-Leavitt provides all types of insurance products to area residents and businesses, including life, health, commercial packages, and financial services.
