The synergies between two long-time, successful, independent agencies promises success for many more years to come.

Vicki Schultz will continue to lead the office in Alma, which will become part of Ansay & Associates’ Eau Claire region. She will report to Ansay & Associates Executive Vice President Toby Dutter, who manages the Eau Claire region. Additionally, part-time employees Sonja Bautch and Dorothy Peterson will continue in their roles as Personal Lines Service Advisors, and Betty Glander will continue to be a smiling face and support the office with her many talents.

Current customers of Bautch Insurance will not experience any disruption in services. Bautch Insurance offers a mix of Commercial and Personal Lines, including: Auto, homeowners, flood, business, excess liability, life and disability insurance.

“Vicki and her team are well known in the area for their professionalism, expertise, and resourcefulness,” Dutter said. “Partnering with Bautch Insurance will allow us to continue to deliver best-in-class customer care while also deepening the range of offerings available to customers, both old and new.”
