NAPA, CA — May 10, 2017 — Napa Valley Insurance Services (NVIS) and North Bay Insurance Brokers (NBIB) are pleased to announce they are joining forces through a formal acquisition. After serving the Sonoma Valley and surrounding areas for over 20 years, Tony Schmoll and Patricia Wallace decided it was time to pass ownership on to new stewards, close friends Pam and Mike Hogin of Napa Valley Insurance Services, LLC.
“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our loyal clients and dedicated staff at NBIB for making these past 20 years an unforgettable ride,” said Schmoll. “I would also like to thank Pam and Mike Hogin and the whole Napa Valley Insurance Team for years of friendship, and for their dedication to our clients going forward. We are in excellent hands.”
Clients of both agencies will experience no material impact, as each business will continue to operate as usual. The North Bay Insurance Brokers Sonoma office will remain in place and will continue to operate under its current name, while the entire NBIB staff will stay with the company — including Tony, who anticipates managing the Sonoma office for a few more years and serving in an advisory role thereafter.
“We are thrilled to welcome North Bay’s clients and staff to the NVIS family,” said Managing Member Pam Hogin. “Our team looks forward to serving the community with the same level of care and reliability you have grown to expect from North Bay Insurance.”
Napa Valley Insurance Services was seeking to expand after experiencing a recent growth in Corporate, Agricultural, and High Net Worth personal clients. With both organizations sharing a similar size and philosophy, the acquisition was the ideal fit. For North Bay Insurance, being part of a now larger organization provides the business with ample opportunities to further its success in the same practice areas.
