Brooke Corporation Opens California Office

August 6, 2003

Brooke Corporation announced that its franchise subsidiary, Brooke Franchise Corporation, has opened a California Regional office in Sacramento to attract and support entrepreneurs who seek to act as independent business owners within the Brooke franchise model. With over 200 locations in 17 states, Brooke is the nation’s 58th largest agency specializing in property and casualty insurance, life and health insurance, securities, and lending brokerage services.

The Sacramento office is headed by Karine Adalian, regional vice president of Brooke Franchise Corporation, who is responsible for statewide operations.

Adalian has more than 17 years of experience in developing, marketing, and distributing insurance and financial services. Previously, she was chief marketing officer at Golden Retirement Resources in New York, and before that was an officer with The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the U.S., where she helped develop strategies for financial services distributed though its retail and wholesale distribution channels. She also helped devise strategies for the development of new channels, and was instrumental in the merger of the company’s two largest life insurance subsidiaries.

Prior to being recruited to Equitable’s New York headquarters, Adalian worked their agents in Southern California on marketing and sales. She began her career in the property and casualty business as the founder of an agency in Southern California.

“With experience as a business owner and as an officer at a major insurance company, Karine is well-equipped to support the efforts of franchise agents who possess a strong, entrepreneurial spirit and appreciate the many advantages that can be provided by a major franchise operation.” Lowry noted that, “Brooke has over 200 franchise locations in 17 states managed by Brooke’s Dallas, Denver, Kansas City and Nashville Regions, and its new Sacramento office provides the company with a presence in an essential market.”
