Arlington/Roe & Co., Inc., Indianapolis, IN, purchased Robert W. Schmidt & Company LLC, Brookfield, WI, effective January 1, 2019

We are pleased to announce that Arlington/Roe & Co. has completed the acquisition of Robert W. Schmidt & Company LLC, Brookfield, WI.

Arlington/Roe, founded in 1964, is a family-owned managing general agent and wholesale property and casualty insurance brokerage firm headquartered in Indiana with 200 staff members located in nine state offices and premium volume over $220 million.

Bob Schmidt said, “I have enjoyed working with independent insurance agents over 30 years. I am pleased to have found a company to purchase our business which shares our spirit and expertise as problem solvers and able to deliver coverage solutions for specialty property and casualty risks. Our agents and their clients are in good hands with Arlington/Roe.”

We chose Wisconsin as an expansion state for Arlington/Roe and have three associates working in the state. We are pleased to add three employees, formerly with Robert W. Schmidt & Company, and now have a Wisconsin office in the greater Milwaukee area.

The purchase of Robert W. Schmidt & Company combined with the scale of our independent, family-owned company will bring expanded access to Wisconsin independent agents. Representing over 200 markets allows us to provide agents with additional products, expertise and the opportunity to serve their clients even more.

Please contact Melanie Gavanes (1-800-878-9891 ext. 2430; cell 618-599-8469; mgavanes@arlingtonroe.com) or Brittany Noller (1-800-878-9891 ext. 8623; bnoller@arlingtonroe.com) to learn more about the expanse of products and expertise we can offer your agency.

On behalf of all Arlington/Roe associates, including our new friends from Robert W. Schmidt & Company, we look forward to serving you with the fine traditions of service to independent insurance agents shared by both organizations.
