TrueNorth Acquires Jewell Insurance 

(Cedar Rapids, Iowa, August 2018) - Representatives from TrueNorth Companies and Jewell Insurance announced this week that Jewell Insurance will be adopting the TrueNorth name to further expand firm presence throughout Colorado.

Located in Greenwood Village, Jewell Insurance has established a strong reputation for trust, expertise and creative solutions. "Our partnership with TrueNorth will allow us to further enhance our creative solutions and provide the advantage of added resources dedicated to the success of our clients' businesses and their assets," said Jewell vice president, Aaron Ellsworth.

"As we continue to broaden our national footprint, we intend to expand TrueNorth's presence within the state of Colorado, using the Greenwood Village location as a flagship office," said Duane Smith, CEO of TrueNorth. "With over 65 years in business, Jewell's reputation in the Denver area will lay a strong foundation for our combined organizations to grow." The Greenwood Village location will serve as TrueNorth's second location in the Denver marketplace; TrueNorth has an existing location in Longmont.  

With 15 offices spanning six states, TrueNorth continues to rank within the top 50 largest privately-owned brokerage firms in the United States. As the company continues to evolve, planned growth through acquisition will lead to future buyouts throughout the United States.
