“Behling Insurance Agency is deeply committed to the community it serves and its hands-on approach to serving clients makes it the perfect fit for Alera Group,” said Alan Levitz, CEO of Alera Group. “Alera Group’s locations across the country give back locally and often have long standing relationships with clients that span years or even generations. Behling embodies our core values and we’re pleased to have them join our company.”

Their collaborative culture and the opportunity to offer a breadth of national resources and innovative thinking to the families and business owners of Utah will positively impact our employees, clients and the communities where we live and work,” said Dan Sherwood, President of Behling Insurance Agency, Inc.
