Croix Insurance  celebrates 30 years! Croix Insurance  celebrates 30 years!

Croix Insurance Agency is celebrating over 30 years of business in Prescott! They celebrated their anniversary year this past Wednesday, at the Prescott Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing.

About 30 years, ago Mavis Melstrom started Croix Insurance agency with an office in the Boardwalk Building in downtown Prescott. She and Len Cernohous bought out the Pierce County Insurance Agency that was in the Pierce County Bank & Trust building. That building is on the corner of Campbell and Orrin and is owned now by BMO Bank. Croix Insurance moved at that time and has been in the same office all these years serving individuals, families and businesses in Prescott and the surrounding area. Croix Insurance is an independent agency, representing an array of insurance companies, allowing clients to make choices in their insurance coverage, finding the value that fits their needs._ Six years ago, the agency became a part of the_Leitch Insurance Group who has offices in River Falls and Hudson as well. “We’re large enough to represent many top rated insurance companies, yet small enough to give you individual attention,” current owner Steve Leitch says. “We take great pride in having staff be involved in the community and being local.”

Kris Sampson, an agent at Croix with 34 years total experience, says, “I started working with my Mom, and it has been a pleasure to help people find the insurance they value and allow them to pursue their dreams.” Like many of the staff working at Croix, Kris has served Prescott with a passion, serving on Prescott Foundation, Friends of Freedom Park Board, Chamber of Commerce, Prescott Daze Committee, Prescott Parent Committees as well as Pierce County Board of Supervisors.

Croix Insurance was hoping to have larger party earlier this year with previous owners, staff and clients, but this is just one more thing that Covid-19 has changed. So for now, agent Ryan Leitch reassured, “We will acknowledge the accomplishment and look forward to a bigger event at the 40th anniversary!”

Currently, Steve Leitch, Kris Sampson, Ryan Leitch, Brandon Leitch, new agent Carol Miles and Donna Boatman all work out the Prescott office. Of course, due to Covid-19 they are working remotely, but are available by phone, email or will make appointments to help serve clients.
