Holdenrid Insurance Group and Griffin Insurance Agency Merge and Join Leavitt Group

Holdenrid Insurance Group and Griffin Insurance Agency, both based in North Carolina, are excited to announce they have recently merged to create a single, larger agency. Secondary to this merger, they have also affiliated with Leavitt Group, based in Cedar City, Utah.

Griffin Insurance Agency, led by Mike Griffin, has been serving North Carolina for 40+ years with seven locations in Mooresville, Statesville, Lincolnton, Denver, Yadkinville, Wilkesboro, and West Jefferson.

Mike Griffin shared, “This merger will allow us to broaden our strengths within two already very successful agencies. Michael Holdenrid brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the life and financial services areas. With his leadership in that department, we can build out much-needed family security and retirement plans across all our locations to better serve the needs of our entire client base.”

Holdenrid Insurance Group, led by Michael Holdenrid, has been serving the communities of Mt. Holly, Charlotte, Lake Norman, and Winston-Salem since 2016. “We see this as an amazing opportunity to partner with two great organizations that focus on excellence in providing an unparalleled insurance delivery experience. Leveraging this expertise and other resources will allow our team to provide tremendous value and live out our mission of enriching the lives of our clients in a greater capacity,” said Holdenrid regarding the merger.

With Leavitt Group’s broad net of support and services, they will comprehensively support all Holdenrid’s and Griffin’s current locations across North Carolina, including their staff and current and future clients.

To finalize the merger and affiliation with Leavitt Group, the new, combined organization will undergo a name change over the next year. Their new name will be Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors. Until that time, the agency will be doing business as Griffin Insurance Agency and Holdenrid Insurance Group. The agency staff, locations, and all contact information remain the same.
