Jeff Merritt
Jeff grew up in southeastern Michigan and is a third generation insurance professional. Jeff’s grandfather started in the business in the 1920’s and his father took over in the late 1950’s. Jeff worked for the family agency during high school and college until it was sold in the mid-80’s. Working for two national brokers (Fred S. James and Aon Risk Services) he learned the large account side of the business. In 1998 Jeff saw an opportunity to break off on his own and established his own agency and in 2012 he merged his operation with Great Lakes Insurance Partners to establish and expand their operations in the Michigan market.
