Simmons Insurance Agency Joins Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors, Further Expanding Their Footprint Across North Carolina

Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors (LEIA) is pleased to announce its most recent merger with Pilot Mountain, North Carolina-based Simmons Insurance Agency. LEIA has experienced a lot of growth recently, including the merger of Barr Insurance and Bill Abee Insurance Group, both in North Carolina, just last year.

Simmons Insurance Agency was founded in 1973 and has been run under Pam Morgan’s leadership, the current president of the agency, since 2001. Since its beginnings, the agency has been heavily focused on providing a range of personal insurance, business insurance, and agribusiness insurance solutions. Over the decades they’ve been honored with several awards and recognition, including Nationwide Insurance Champion Agency, Nationwide Insurance Elite Agency, Nationwide Insurance Heritage Agency, and Nationwide Insurance Local Service Agent Award.

Morgan shared the following: “Being a part of Leavitt Group will provide us with more opportunities to offer our clients competitive products and services that we’ve not had access to in the past. Leavitt Group exemplifies our agency’s mission: To provide our clients with the protection and security they need,” she said. “The insurance industry continues to change, and we want to make sure our clients benefit from the flexibility of a personalized approach to their insurance needs.”

Mike Griffin, agency co-owner at Leavitt Elite, is confident the change will be mutually beneficial. “We are excited to have Simmons Insurance Agency join our team here at Leavitt Elite,” said Griffin. “The shared passion for taking care of their clients, along with a strong sense of community, will fit nicely with the long-standing traditions of Leavitt Group.”

As part of this merger, Pam Morgan and the staff of Simmons Insurance Agency will be joining LEIA and over time will be adopting their agency name and branding. They will maintain their current offices in Pilot Mountain and Mount Airy, North Carolina, and all contact information remains unchanged.
