“We are excited for this merger and what it will mean for our team members and clients,” Hanson said in a statement. “Great North Insurance shares our love of giving back to our community financially and through volunteerism.

Killoran echoed his comments.

“We’re extremely fortunate to have team members from Corwin Insurance become part of the Great North family,” Killoran said. “The Corwin name has been synonymous with customer service and in the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo community for more than a century. We are excited for the opportunity to bring this business unit under Great North Insurance.”
