Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan joined its Southeast Region Managing Partners Greg Badley, Garrison Diehl, Alex Garn, Andrea Rouland, and Joe Schultz as well as the City of Troy Chamber of Commerce and Troy Mayor, Ethan Baker, in celebration of the grand opening Farm Bureau’s new Agent Development Office (ADO) in Troy, Michigan. The Managing Partners were presented with a proclaimation from the City of Troy at a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 1st.
While presenting the proclamation onsite at the new location at 1301 W Long Lake Rd, Troy MI 48098, Baker said, “We're very proud of our business community here in Troy and we couldn't be more thrilled to welcome you.” He continued, “Your commitment here is very meaningful for us and we're excited to do whatever we can to support you.”
“This is an awesome location,” said Garn. While noting Troy’s reputation as a growing financial services hub, Garn added, “(this) couldn't be a better place to start a business and protect people from everyday risk which is our overall mission that we're all intrinsically behind and support.”
In addition to the Southeast region Farm Bureau Insurance Managing Partners and the City of Troy Chamber, attendees ranged from Farm Bureau leadership, to fellow Troy area business owners, to the aspiring Farm Bureau Insurance agents who will be learning in the new space. “We've got four new agents here today,” said Garn. “We're excited to give them the opportunity to start a business and build it into something much bigger than themselves.”
The agents who will be working out of the new office are part of a statewide force of over 400 Farm Bureau Insurance agents serving more than 660,000 Michigan policyholders. Farm Bureau Insurance agents work to ensure that the people of Michigan are protected across a comprehensive list of insurance needs, including home, auto, business, health, farm, retirement, crop, lake estate, and more.
