Independent Insurance Agencies, Chandler Insurance Agency and MJC Insurance Group Join Tennessee-Based BTJ Insurance Agency

BTJ Insurance Agency, headquartered in Nashville, TN, and with five other locations across the state, is excited to announce the acquisition of two agencies: MJC Insurance Group and Chandler Insurance Agency. BTJ Insurance Agency has been an affiliate of nationwide insurance broker, Leavitt Group, since 2021. These acquisitions will offer current and future clients additional resources and benefits that were previously unavailable.

Chandler Insurance Agency was most recently under the leadership of Parks Chandler. Pete Chandler, Parks’ father, started Chandler Insurance Agency in 1970; since then, the agency has worked to provide clients with high-quality service and insurance.

“We’ve been looking for the right fit to help us move to a more modern approach without losing the personal hometown touch that our clients have grown so accustomed to over the years,” said Parks Chandler. “We’re excited to provide new and competitive options in this fast-changing world and are looking forward to working with Bobby and his team.”

MJC Insurance Group was founded in 2013 in Franklin, Tennessee, then transitioned to a fully remote agency in 2020. They focus on providing personal lines, commercial lines, and life insurance to clients across Tennessee. Amanda Coleman will remain onboard as a remote employee and all phone numbers remain the same.

“Leon Wright and his team built an exceptional book of business. We are thrilled to welcome the MJC clients to the BTJ Insurance team. MJC is a 100% remote agency, and the clients will continue to enjoy the service they are used to with the option to visit one of our seven Tennessee locations.”

With the merger, both agencies will be adopting the BTJ Insurance name and branding, so clients should expect future communications to look slightly different.
