Agency Merger

The Accel Group and Millhiser Smith Agency are merging together!

We are pleased to announce that The Accel Group has reached a merger agreement with the Millhiser Smith Agency, an independent insurance agency in Cedar Rapids.  Effective January 1, 2018, our new combined entity will do business as The Accel Group, making us one of the largest Iowa-based insurance agencies in the state.  We will maintain offices in Cedar Falls, Waverly, and Cedar Rapids and will retain the same experienced management teams from each business.

We’re very excited about this and you should be to.  Why?  Because it creates opportunity.

  • Opportunity for our business to evolve and grow while still maintaining our independence, culture, and the people that make us great.
  • Opportunity for our employees to advance their careers with a thriving company, leverage resources, and feel secure about their future.
  • Opportunity for our customers to take advantage of more carriers, competitive rates, and additional services; all without sacrificing that personalized service and customization we’re known for.
