Cal-Surance Associates Inc. a national insurance sales, service and support organization comprising many diverse and specialized programs, has acquired the Gail H. Murrell Insurance Agency.

Cal-Surance focuses on specialization and service quality to answer the specific needs of its clients using a highly focused, innovative and consultative operation.

Gail H. Murrell will remain with the company serving as a consultant. Cal-Surance does not anticipate any staffing changes with the acquisition.

“I chose Cal-Surance because of their extensive experience in national program management,” said Murrell. “Their business philosophies are consistent with mine and they have an excellent reputation for providing high quality service.”
