WAUKESHA - R&R insurance Services of Waukesha announced Wednesday it has merged with Snyder Insurance, an independent agency based in Oconomowoc.

According to a release from R&R, the blending of the two Waukesha County agencies will allow for a greater breadth of resources for clients.

“We anticipate a seamless transition and are excited to work with a great partner like R&R insurance,” said John Snyder III, owner of Snyder Insurance, in a release. “Their reputable business practices and vast resources assure us that our clients are in good hands.”

Snyder added that clients of his agency will now have access to R&R services such as seminars, claims management, safety consulting and risk management expertise.

The merger is effective as of Sept. 1.

R&R will celebrate 40 years of service in southeastern Wisconsin next year and has been named as one of the top 100 Property and Casualty agencies in the nation by the Insurance Journal. It is the largest single-owned independent insurance agency in Wisconsin and offers businesses and individuals a full range of products and services including property casualty, employee benefits and workers compensation.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for all involved and we at R&R are lucky to be in this great position,” said Ken Riesch, president and owner of R&R Insurance. “It reinforces our commitment to do business in southeastern Wisconsin.”

In a letter to employees and clients, Snyder said the staff and the services provided by his company will not change, saying the merger ensures “our continued upstanding position in the community.”
