AS OF Jan. 7, Milleson Insurance Agency has acquired the servicing rights for the now retired Jean A. Strupe Agency in Dillonvale, positioning Dan Milleson as the Nationwide Principal Agent for Strupe's former clients.
The new location will be opened on March 3at 265 Union St. in Mount Pleasant, next door to the Post Office. Milleson says he sees value in providing an opportunity for his new clients to do business face to face.
"People like to know that they can come see you about their business. Our current locations just do not work geographically for our new members in southern Jefferson County and beyond. We want to give everyone the ability to review their policy and make payments with an agent sitting across from them. It will also allow us to return the favor and support the area that's supporting us." Milleson said there is also potential to add to the staff total of six, "Our agency is to the size now where we need to add another agent to adequately take care of our members. We will be looking into that market space to give someone an opportunity."
Milleson also added, "I wanted to thank Jean Strupe and family for her years of service. Jean had a great career and it's evident that she shared a strong bond with many of her policyholders. It will be difficult to fill her shoes, but we are looking forward to the opportunity."
An open house is planned for all new clients on Saturday, March 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
