Two local employee benefits providers, Heavin Insurance Agency and Arvak Insurance Group, have merged to become Heavin, Otto & Leavitt and at the same time affiliated with Leavitt Group, a network of insurance brokers whose collective strength allows members to provide national resources to their clients. Will Heavin of Heavin Insurance Agency and John Otto of Arvak Insurance Group are the co-owners of the agency.
“I’m excited to be combining offices and staff with Arvak Insurance Group and Leavitt Group,” said Heavin. “With the many changes in healthcare laws and compliance, I wanted a partner that had more client resources to better serve our clients.”
“With this merger, we will continue our long tradition of bringing value to our clients with innovative benefits design and leading edge technology,” said Otto. “Our affiliation with Leavitt Group enhances our capabilities and makes a wider array of products available.”
The merger will not affect customer policies, and familiar personnel will be on hand to assist clients with any questions.
Otto has focused on the employee benefit field of insurance since 1977. Arvak Insurance Group has provided a range of insurance products to protect individuals and businesses.
Heavin started his career in insurance in 1985 and works with employers of all sizes. Heavin Insurance Agency has provided benefits to over 300 local employers, designing and implementing plans for their employees to help attract and retain top talent.
