Glenwood Insurance, Carbondale Insurance combine forces

Sopris Sun Staff Report

On March 1, Glenwood Insurance Agency completed the purchase of Carbondale Insurance Service, according to a press release.

Rona Fischer purchased Carbondale Insurance Service with a silent partner in April 1990 from Mary Boland. Fischer grew Carbondale Insurance Service from one employee in 1991, to six full-time employees at the time of the sale. “Glenwood Insurance exceeded our hopes for an agency to combine with and continue the tradition we have for excellent customer service, deep expertise, and an environment where our clients feel comfortable,” said Fischer.

Carbondale Insurance Service will continue to offer insurance coverage for businesses, as well as home, auto, health and life insurance for individuals and families.

Ian Exelbert, COO of Glenwood Insurance Agency, said he is excited about the growth of one of Glenwood Springs’ oldest businesses. Glenwood Insurance Agency celebrates its 104th anniversary in 2015.

“The combination of Glenwood Insurance Agency and Carbondale Insurance Service raises the level of service for our Roaring Fork Valley clients. We are also adding Spanish speakers in both offices to provide a higher level of service, no matter what language they speak.”

Carbondale Insurance Service will continue to operate from its current office at 502 Main St. All contact information remains the same. Clients of Carbondale Insurance Service are encouraged to call with questions or concerns.
