AAA Washington Insurance Agency Opens Kennewick Location

Acquisition of Monteith Insurance Agency Increases AAA Products and Services

BELLEVUE, Wash. — The AAA Washington Insurance Agency is pleased to announce the expansion of services to the Tri-Cities through the acquisition of the Monteith Insurance Agency and its team of very experienced insurance professionals. AAA is excited to collaborate with an insurance agency who also puts customers first, finding clients the best coverage for a fair price.

“We are very excited to be able to acquire a proven and reliable agency like Monteith Insurance,” said Pat McCormick, Vice President of Insurance for AAA Washington. “Given Mark’s long-term commitment to the greater Tri-Cities region, through the combined talents of AAA and Monteith, we will expand products and services for our current and future members and customers.”

Nearly 23 years ago, the Monteith Insurance Agency began building the reputation of making every client interaction a satisfying one. Owner Mark Monteith founded the business to educate clients about their insurance needs, provide them with the best coverage for a fair price and have them leave knowing he and his agents care about them. Monteith Insurance Agency made a name for itself creating a list of insurance policies customized for specific local industries including farms and livestock operations.

All of the Monteith Insurance agents will continue to work for the AAA Washington Insurance Agency – Tri-Cities (8518 W Gage Blvd #1, Kennewick) with Mark Monteith staying on as the location manager.  Monteith described the change as a new opportunity, exciting for both he and the entire staff.

“AAA Washington will allow us to continue meeting the insurance needs of our current clients, providing them with exceptional service and a lot of products from which to choose,” said Monteith. “Personally, I look forward to assisting in the expansion of AAA’s footprint in Eastern Washington.”

The AAA Washington Insurance Agency offers all personal lines of insurance (home, auto, life) plus long-term care planning, annuities and business insurance. You do not need to be a AAA member to purchase these policies. However, Monteith clients who are also AAA members can now receive a discount on their auto insurance from AAA’s carrier partners including Safeco, Progressive, MetLife and Mutual of Enumclaw.
