​North Idaho Insurance, Summit Insurance Resource Group Join Forces Under the Alliant Brand

Two of Sandpoint, Idaho’s insurance leaders kick off new era as Alliant Insurance Services

NEWPORT BEACH, CA — Two of Sandpoint, Idaho’s leading names in insurance brokerage have embarked on a new era of excellence under the Alliant Insurance Services brand. North Idaho Insurance and Summit Insurance Resources Group have a new name and central location, united by the commitment to continue their longstanding legacy of service to the region’s residents and businesses.

Effective immediately, both firms will assume the Alliant Insurance Services name, operating from the company’s downtown Sandpoint location at 509 North 5th Avenue. This transition follows Alliant’s acquisition of Summit in May 2017 and North Idaho in April 2015. According to leadership from both firms, the move will enable the longtime local institutions to continue their proven brand of quality and service, only with the added reach and resources of one of the nation’s largest specialty insurance brokerage firms.

“Serving the local community is part of our DNA, and we will continue to deliver the customized products and family-oriented service that our clients have come to expect,” said Jamie Miller, Assistant Vice President and Sandpoint operations lead.

The combined expertise of North Idaho and Summit comprise the region’s most robust mix of insurance products and services, including commercial insurance, personal lines, employee benefits, and a full range of risk management capabilities.

“Operating as part of the Alliant family will unlock access to greater market depth and a broader selection of coverage options, enabling us to add an additional layer of strength to our client relationships,” said Summit founder Angela Oakes.

North Idaho and Summit’s entire management team and staff have made the transition to Alliant and will continue to serve their client base as members of the Alliant team.

With a history dating back to 1925, Alliant is the nation’s 11th largest insurance brokerage firm, with more than 90 offices nationwide, including locations in Spokane, Coeur d’ Alene, and Sandpoint. Since 2014, Alliant has engaged in an active regional expansion in the area through strategic acquisitions, organic growth, and recruitment.
