Bear River Mutual, one of Utah’s top insurance providers, recently appointed Briggs-Leavitt Insurance Agency (Salina), Nebo-Leavitt Insurance Agency (Nephi), Okerlund-Leavitt Insurance Agency (Richfield) and Worthington-Leavitt Insurance Agency (Ephraim) as the first to represent their products in rural Utah.
Each of these independent insurance agencies provides products from several major insurance carriers and looks forward to offering current and prospective clients the competitive products of Bear River Mutual. Ned Worthington, manager and co-owner of Worthington-Leavitt, notes, “They came to us because of our prior relationship with Don Adams, the president of Bear River Mutual. Don knew our reputation for giving quality service and writing quality business.”
Bear River is proud of its humble beginnings in Box Elder County in 1909, and continues to offer coverage exclusively in Utah. The company`s success can be attributed to its familiarity with the area and solid understanding of the needs of Utahans. Mel Briggs, manager and co-owner of Briggs-Leavitt, says, “They decided on our appointment because they know we run the type of agency which fits well with Bear River`s long term goals.”
As a mutual company, Bear River is essentially owned by its clients, hence profits are returned to policyholders in the form of reduced premiums-allowing Bear River Mutual to compete with nation-wide carriers. The four Leavitt Group agencies welcome Bear River Mutual`s insurance products and are excited to offer this market that has been previously unavailable in the area. “Bear River has been known for many years, has very good rates and their clients have always been highly satisfied,” Worthington says.
