Leavitt Group Agencies Combine Operations In Merger

The Leavitt Group announced a merger of three of their Southern California agencies. The merger will include their Covina office (Valley Insurance Service – Dennis P. Monahan, AAI, Co-Owner), their employee benefits agency (Leavitt Benefits Insurance Services of Southern California – Kevin Garrett, Co-Owner), and their Santa Ana office (Pridemark-Everest Insurance Services – Angelo Maroutsos, Co-Owner).

All three agencies will join together in the existing Santa Ana location and will operate as Leavitt Insurance Services of Southern California. The merger will not affect current accounts, and clients will continue to work with the same personnel with whom they are familiar. Phone numbers will remain the same.

The three agencies have worked together closely in their region for many years, and this merger will enhance their ability to best serve the marketplace.  By joining forces, clients will benefit from the combined experience, relationships, service team, and resources. The merger will not only allow for greater integration across business units, but also enhance and unify the agencies’ broad set of capabilities in insurance, employee benefits, and risk management.

“Our offices have long collaborated with each other, and this merger is a natural extension of our teamwork,” said Angelo Maroutsos, a managing principal of the combined agency. “The merger will allow us to increase our efficiencies, enhance our resources, and ultimately—and most importantly—better serve our clients.”
