Snapper Shuler Kenner Insurance sold to Brown & Brown Inc.

Snapper Shuler Kenner Insurance, a local insurance company with offices in Bellingham and Lynden, has become part of Brown & Brown of Washington, a subsidiary of Brown & Brown Inc.

The agency will continue to do business under the name Snapper Shuler Kenner Insurance and will keep its staff of 30 employees. Former principal Paul Kenner will continue to lead both offices as a vice president of Brown & Brown of Washington.

“This is the best of both worlds for our customers and employees,” Kenner said in a press release. “Brown & Brown owns agencies, but doesn’t run them. Most of our customers won’t even notice any changes, but this will give us more resources to serve businesses who operate nationally or internationally, as well as some clients who have complex insurance needs.”

Brown & Brown Inc. is the nation’s seventh-largest insurance intermediary. For more information, call Snapper Shuler Kenner Insurance at (360) 354-4488.
