Crest Insurance Group enters the Wyoming market with the acquisition of Rawlins and Laramie based Allen Insurance

Crest Insurance Group, one of the country’s fastest growing insurance brokerage firms, announced today the acquisition of Allen Insurance. The move is a homecoming for CEO Cody Ritchie and CFO Jon Addy who were both raised in Wyoming, attended the University of Wyoming, and continue to support the University and communities throughout the State.
“There was no question who we wanted to partner with to represent our clients,” said Larry Jebens, President of Allen, “Crest is the kind of company that understands Wyoming.” Sandra Bittner will continue to lead the Laramie office and Georgeann Martinez will lead the Rawlins office. Allen customers can expect the same great service and will have access to a broad selection of insurance options as a result of the affiliation with Crest. The Allen transaction marks Crest’s tenth agency acquisition completed this year and represents Crest’s continued investment in the intermountain west. The Company continues to seek out quality partners to strengthen its service offering. Crest’s evolution strategy focuses on partnering with agencies that share a common culture rooted in hard work, community involvement and competitive spirit.
