NEWPORT BEACH, CA — Alliant has acquired Degginger McIntosh & Associates. The Washington State insurance brokerage firm brings a 56-year legacy of excellence in insurance, risk management, and employee benefits to Alliant’s growing Pacific Northwest operations. In addition to enhancing Alliant’s comprehensive property and casualty footprint, the acquisition stands in direct strategic alignment with the firm’s regional employee benefits capabilities.
“Degginger McIntosh has a long and proven track record of service, strength, and innovation,” said Tom Corbett, Chairman and CEO of Alliant. “The firm’s dynamic leadership, strong reputation among carriers, and unparalleled local knowledge will power our continued expansion in the Pacific Northwest while complementing Alliant’s distinct regional capabilities and service offerings.”
Founded in 1963, Degginger McIntosh provides a broad array of commercial and personal insurance solutions from its offices in Seattle and Bellingham, WA. In addition to its core focus on property and casualty insurance, Degginger McIntosh also offers a breadth of employee benefits and financial services solutions, providing clients with a fully integrated suite of products and services. Highly regarded for its broad industry reach and deep product knowledge, Degginger McIntosh serves a diverse array of clients both in its own backyard and throughout the United States.
“Service has been the Degginger McIntosh promise since our founding, as we endeavor to provide our clients with solutions that are customized to their needs and focused on controlling insurance costs,” said the firm’s president, Keith Degginger. “Alliant, with its national platform, deep pool of resources, and long history of entrepreneurial thinking, will further this promise and enable us to offer our clients an even more robust service profile.”
The agreement with Degginger McIntosh is part of an active regional acquisition campaign. Since 2014, Alliant has completed a large number of strategic acquisitions in the greater Northwest in both property and casualty and employee benefits.
