A new insurance agency, North Shore Educators Insurance Agency, recently opened at 5464 N. Port Washington Road, Suite F, in Glendale.
North Shore is affiliated with insurance provider Meemic Insurance Co. It offers auto, home and umbrella coverage to teachers and other educational employees.
The agency is owned and operated by Rusty Bronson, who also has an independent agency, Bronson Insurance Services LLC, in the same building.
“My independent agency will continue to work and operate as it has for the last 15 years and now I have my new agency, Meemic,” Bronson said.
The two agency model allows Bronson to provide insurance to both education employees and others. As a result of the growth, Bronson has hired a part-time employee at each agency and plans to hire a full-time employee at North Shore soon.
Bronson spent 14 years as a Racine County Sheriff’s Deputy before becoming a corporate safety director for Manheim Auctions in Raymond. While living in Raymond, he served as a volunteer firefighter and licensed emergency medical technician. Through those experiences, he gained an appreciation for protecting and educating others, he said.
North Shore is also partnered with The Meemic Foundation, which provides grants to area schools.
“Our team is committed to supporting the education community by establishing long-term relationships, based on trust,” Bronson said. “Meemic has a tradition of above-and-beyond service, so helping educators understand their insurance is one of the many enjoyable parts of what we do. By opening the North Shore Educators Agency, we hope to share the protection that Meemic can bring to educators and their families in the Milwaukee area and surrounding communities.”
