The Allen Kerr Insurance Agency of Little Rock will merge with Delta Trust & Bank’s insurance subsidiary.
The move will expand Delta Trust Insurance, Inc.’s offerings and allow for “a complete range of property and casualty services while tripling the current staff and adding over 60 years of industry expertise,” according to a company press release.
“This merger allows Delta Trust to further our position in the insurance industry and gives us the ability to better serve our clients by offering a more complete range of products,” said French Hill, Vice-Chairman and CEO of Delta Trust & Bank. “Allen Kerr is an expert in his field, and we are proud to welcome his team to Delta Trust.”
Kerr is also a Republican State Representative in west Little Rock serving his third term.
“Delta Trust is now able to expand our property and casualty services while still continuing to grow our life, estate planning, health insurance and employee benefits business,” said Cary Curzon, Delta Trust Insurance President.
The Allen Kerr Agency was established in 1981 as a captive agency for Farmers Insurance Group. In 2011, Kerr left Famers and created his own independent agency. Delta Trust Insurance has been in existence since the bank formed in 1999.
“We are thrilled to join the Delta Trust team and look forward to being able to provide our clients with all the benefits that a full service financial partner can offer,” said Kerr, who will serve as Executive Vice-President at Delta Trust Insurance.
Kerr and his staff will continue to operate at his existing office space at 1429 Merrill Drive in Little Rock.
