We are excited to announce that we have acquired a local insurance agency, formerly known as Scherff Insurance Agency, Inc, based in Gansevoort, NY. The addition is an enhancement to not only our agency, but, we hope, to the markets and clients that we are privileged to expand to.
The Merriam Agency announced the acquisition on Monday, October 5th. Financial details of the transaction, which closed on Friday, October 2nd, have not been shared.
Avon Scherff, owner of Scherff Insurance Agency, said, “I have known Brian for many years. I believe that The Merriam Agency will continue to provide access to competitive markets, comprehensive insurance programs, and excellent, personalized service to our valued clients, as well as an expanded product line.”
Brian H. Merriam, President of Merriam Insurance, stated, “The Merriam Agency has been serving the personal and commercial needs of local and national clients since it was founded in 1895. As the needs of our clients change, so must the products we offer to them. Scherff Insurance Agency enhances our markets in several areas. We were attracted to their commitment to excellence, and the acquisition fits well with the current direction of the Agency.”
