The two agencies formally merged earlier this month
Geoff Gordon, CFP®, CIC, CRM, president of Andrew G. Gordon, Inc., and Jeff Helm, CIC, LIA, president of Atlantic Advisers have announced the merger of their agencies. In a joint announcement, the agencies have stated that as of this month, their combined agencies, formerly the independent insurance agencies Andrew G. Gordon Insurance and Atlantic Advisers Insurance Agency, will operate as Gordon Atlantic.
“The insurance industry has grown increasingly complex and competitive in the past decade. Combining our two companies allows us to provide you with a wider and deeper range of services, gives us additional resources and expertise, and (perhaps most important) gives us more ‘clout’ in representing our customers with insurance carriers so that we can remain a competitive force on their behalf,” said Geoff Gordon, who will serve as president of Gordon Atlantic Insurance.
In addition to this newly created agency, a separate division, known as Gordon Atlantic Advisors, LLC, has also been created to service specialized risk assessment and risk management services for businesses. Both Gordon Atlantic Insurance and Gordon Atlantic Advisors will continue to be headquartered in Norwell at 306 Washington Street.
