This is the right move at the right time for Dawson Insurance, its employees and valued clients, and we’re looking forward to the opportunities this combination of two great companies will bring.
So why did we do this? Realizing some change for Dawson made sense to ensure its future, we started exploring various possibilities. After analyzing and identifying the best strategy for future growth, career opportunities for our employees and delivering enhanced risk management solutions to our clients, the acquisition by MMA best met our goals.
MMA’s decentralized business model empowers local leaders and service teams to operate in ways that make sense to them, their clients, and the communities in which they operate. Consequently, no positions were eliminated because of this change; instead, Dawson Insurance is now better positioned to grow its employee base.
I will continue as President and Dan Armbrust, Vice President. Our name will stay the same, we aren’t moving, our client’s service teams will not change, and our community philanthropy and involvement will remain strong.
While our nearly 100-year tradition is key to who we are, this move is about Dawson’s next 100 years, and how we best serve all of you going forward. Thank you for your continued friendship and business. We look forward to you learning more about this new partnership and the positive impact it will have.
Thomas C. Dawson
