Mike Lappin Joins Valley Insurance Associates

Valley Insurance Associates, a Vizance Company based in Hartland, has hired Mike Lappin as Partner and President.

Since 1999, Lappin has been employed with Motorists Insurance Group, most recently serving as President of Wilson Mutual since 2013. Under Lappin’s direction, Wilson Mutual experienced increased revenue, while also improving a number of internal departments, furthering Wilson’s position as a leader in the insurance industry. At Valley Insurance Associates, Lappin plans to add additional associates to the team, and will also be exploring further opportunities for mergers and acquisitions.

“I am delighted to partner with the team at Valley Insurance Associates and Vizance,” said Lappin. “This is a dynamic organization that has successfully evolved to meet the needs of an ever-changing business environment, and the values and vision of this company are in complete alignment with mine. This role provides the ideal leadership opportunity to merge my passion for insurance with my track record of robust business growth.”

Jeff Cardenas, President of Vizance, echoed Lappin’s thoughts: “We are thrilled to welcome Mike to the team. His outstanding character and values, combined with his proven success in helping Wilson Mutual grow over time, indicate that he will provide the leadership that is needed to sustain our rapid organic growth rate. We will also continue to look at opportunities to acquire agencies that fit with our culture and strengthen our service offerings.”
