Who we are.

Our Why

We’re here to help you on your adventure.

Guiding Principles

  • Belonging

  • We are committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion by creating opportunities that welcome a diverse workforce and allow each colleague to bring their authentic self to work.
  • Giving

  • We give 10% of our pre-tax profit to our community each and every year. By offering our resources to trusted non-profit organizations that share our vision, G&A provides opportunities for others.
  • Insight

  • A good decision made using bad data is a bad decision. We apply thought leadership and insights gained from a comprehensive knowledge base to make informed decisions.
  • Innovation

  • We believe empowering our colleagues to challenge the industry status quo allows us to deliver the best client experience. We provide proactive solutions to complex problems that make a lasting business impact.
  • Growth

  • We strive for growth as an organization – but it’s not just about revenue. It’s a shared mindset centered around continued development, both personally and professionally.

The Gregory & Appel story.

Founded in 1884 by John J. Appel and Fred Gregory, Gregory & Appel started with a dream to build a lasting insurance agency. Over a century later, that dream continues to live on. We’ve been independently owned through it all, allowing us to be more nimble and supportive of our clients and colleagues.
