MARQUETTE-Hetrick & Associates, after 125 years of doing business and eight previous name changes, are now known as VAST.
With the impending retirement of Bill Hetrick, the company felt a ninth change was needed. VAST was developed after looking at the firm and how it has evolved and will continue to evolve. As the largest Independent Insurance Agency in the Upper Peninsula, the firm represents more than 80 insurance companies and serves more than 5,000 clients.
Bill Hetrick said he's excited about the transition. "I've watched the evolution of this agency and I'm so proud of where we've come. VAST will be a tremendous asset to businesses and families that need protection and advice," Hetrick said.
Still located at 300 South Front Street, in Marquette, the same group of 31 professionals is on staff to assist c;lients.
