General Insurance Services (GIS) has partnered with U.S. and American Insurance Services of Hobart.

General Insurance Services president Craig Menne said: “Part of our strategic plan has been expansion into Lake County and we’re thrilled to have USI and AIS serve as the foundation for that growth.

“Their values and the way they conduct business are both similar to our own, and we’re excited to serve as the perpetuation partner for both agencies.”

GIS will be retaining U.S. and American Insurance Services’ Hobart location at 8085 Randolph Street, making this the fourth GIS office in the region. The addition of this new office provides GIS the opportunity to expand the agency’s footprint in Northwest Indiana, and strategically compliments their other offices located in La Porte, Michigan City, and Valparaiso.

U.S. and American Insurance Services has been family owned and operated by the Stroguiludis family since 1966. With an established reputation of quality service and integrity, U.S. and American Insurance Services is a perfect fit with GIS’s culture and values.

Menne said: “Their dedication perfectly aligns with our mission to secure the future of the communities we serve. It’s particularly exciting to know that Hobart is, formally, the next community whose future we are going to help secure.

George Stroguiludis said: “We chose to partner with GIS because they have been an industry leader in Northwest Indiana since 1935.

“They embrace the same values and professionalism we believe are critical when making insurance decisions that affect our clients.”

GIS has been serving Northwest Indiana for over 80 years, offering a wide range of insurance products including Personal, Commercial, and Life & Health options. GIS strives to be a resource for all forms of insurance and risk management, and is committed to the highest standards of service, integrity, and responsiveness.
