Kalamazoo’s Minor-Field Insurance Agency joins the Lake Michigan Insurance Agency family!

Minor Field Agency has served the insurance needs of Kalamazoo as an independent agency for nearly 90 years, providing both personal and commercial lines of insurance. As of September 1, 2016, Minor-Field Agency became part of Lake Michigan Insurance Agency (LMIA). Minor Field’s location at 5865 Venture Park Drive in Kalamazoo becomes LMIA’s newest insurance branch.

Minor Field Agency has its original roots as Field Agency, founded by Scott Field in 1927. Current president Art Skogsberg bought Field Agency in 1983 and acquired Minor Agency in 1989, combining the two into Minor Field. Current vice president Tom Magrath bought into Minor Field in 1996 as a full partner and equal owner, and will be retiring as the LMCU purchase comes to fruition.

Art Skogsberg commented, “This change of ownership will be a positive for all concerned – clients, LMIA and Minor Field. Combining our two agencies will provide all our customers with access to a larger, more dynamic portfolio of insurance products. Both agencies have considerable talent and expertise in all lines of insurance. And we both have steadfast commitments to the highest levels of customer service. Our clients will also gain access to LMCU’s impressive banking, investment and lending services.

“I will remain at the wheel of our Kalamazoo office, as will most of our employees. We are truly excited about this new phase and the opportunities that lie ahead.”
