Milwaukee-based Robertson Ryan & Associates Inc. has merged with the Shorewood-based Jack C. Loyda agency and the Kewaunee-based Walton Insurance Associates Inc. in a non-cash transaction.
The two producers and four employees at the Loyda agency, which was located at 4414 N. Oakland Ave. in Shorewood, have moved into the Robertson Ryan office at 330 E. Kilbourn Ave. in Milwaukee.
The producer and two employees at the Walton agency will remain in their current Kewaunee offices, becoming the eighth Wisconsin Robertson Ryan branch.
The merger supports Robertson Ryan’s growth, said Gary Burton, chief operating officer. The personal, commercial and employee benefit insurance provider has 205 producers and employees, 195 of whom are in Wisconsin.
“It gave both of those agencies access to more insurance companies and other services that they can offer their clients,” Burton said.
