Lovitt & Touché Rebrands After 100 Years in Arizona

Lovitt & Touché, an Arizona-based insurance brokerage and benefits solutions provider, announced today a rebranding of the agency that emphasizes its local roots and commitment to the community.

“Business Focused, Community Minded” will now serve as the slogan, which Chief Operating Officer Charlie Touché says speaks to the heart of the company’s history and values. “We have roots that reach back more than a century in Arizona, and we have become fixtures in the Phoenix and Tucson communities. Despite our growth, however, we have always considered our business to be family-run and community-focused. We pride ourselves on these traits, and we want to be known for them.”

Founded in 1911, Lovitt & Touché is one of the largest insurance agencies in the United States with nearly 200 employees and more than $300 million in total annual premiums. It offers comprehensive employee benefits solutions, property and casualty insurance, bonds and surety, specialty insurance and risk solutions for businesses along with personal insurance for key individuals of those companies. It has offices in Tempe, Tucson and Las Vegas, and primarily serves businesses and individuals in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.

Lovitt & Touché is a major contributor to community causes and initiatives statewide, donating hundreds of thousands to local charities annually.

“Arizona is our home, and we are committed to making it a better place for our team, our clients and our neighbors. The next phase of our branding efforts will better reflect this,” said Dave Wilder, executive vice president of Lovitt & Touché.

Along with the slogan, Lovitt & Touché is set to launch an updated logo and advertising campaign with a fresh and modern look. They will be officially unveiled at a rebrand launch party on Oct. 23, held at US Airways Center from 4 to 7 p.m.

MJ Insurance reports record revenue

MJ Insurance, one of the nation’s largest privately-held insurance agencies, has reported double digit year-over-year growth with an 11 percent increase across all business lines. The agency also reported record all-time high revenues of $25 million.

MJ’s fiscal year runs from September to September and for fiscal 2013, MJ saw solid growth in both employee benefits and in property and casualty revenues. Even as the economy has struggled, MJ has recorded strong revenue gains over the past five years.

Michael H. Bill, CEO of MJ Insurance, attributes the growth and record revenue to continued investment through the economic downturn in both employees and value-added services for clients.

“Our approach is to align our efforts with clients that emphasize value and this has proven beneficial as the economy has improved,” said Bill. “Challenges brought forth with health care reform have also allowed us to help guide businesses through this historic change.”

MJ Insurance, with offices in Indiana and Arizona, is a property-casualty and employee benefits agency that, since 1964, has grown from a two-person start-up to an agency with more than 125 employees. In 2014, MJ will celebrate its 50th ‘golden’ anniversary.

MJ Insurance specializes in a diverse selection of unique service lines including construction, energy, transportation, real estate, manufacturing, sororities and mining. MJ also offers complete employee benefits programs including major medical, group disability, group life and onsite employer clinics. MJ Insurance currently has clients in 16 countries and in every U.S. state.
