Protecting your assets is not an annual event; it’s an ongoing activity that requires experience, education and expertise. Since 1929 we have been working with businesses and individuals in Whatcom, Skagit and surrounding communities to protect the things that matter most. We are client focused and committed to offering innovative solutions, delivering the most cost-effective products and providing personalized service. Our dedication to our clients and the communities we serve is unwavering.
The Bellingham office opened in 1929 under the ownership of Earl Griffin, from which time it has offered Bellingham insurance solutions. In the 1970s, Griffin’s firm merged with two other agencies to form Griffin, Garrett, Johanson and Schacht. Over the years, GGJ&S flourished and continued to acquire other firms. In 1987, with the acquisition of the Ireland and Bellingar Agency, the name of the agency was changed to The Unity Group, which continued its predecessors’ reputation for professionalism, courtesy and outstanding service while expanding its product line and market area.
In August of 2013, The Unity Group was purchased by HUB International, a leading global insurance brokerage that provides a broad array of products and services, including property and casualty, life and health, employee benefits, investment and risk-management. The acquisition of The Unity Group by HUB created an opportunity to offer our clients the resources of a nationally-recognized firm while retaining local management, long-term relationships and the superior service our clients they have come to know and trust.
