31 Jul Van Meter – Franklin
In 1992, Van Meter Insurance Group extended their southeastern footprint by opening a branch in Middle Tennessee. The office is now located in the Cool Springs area of Franklin, TN, just 15 minutes from the heart of the Music City, Nashville, Tennessee.
In October of 2016, we transitioned the leadership of the Franklin office and Mike Baas, a 20-year team member of the Bowling Green office, was tasked with leading VMI Franklin office in a new direction, and rebuilding the team and brand in middle Tennessee.
In the last two and a half years, we have added seven new producers, an entirely new marketing team, and now have a total of 19 talented team members in our office.
Every discipline within HIG is now represented by our Franklin office by P&C, Employee Benefits, Surety, Select, and Personal Lines team members.
The VMI Franklin team has developed and embraced a culture that is driven by our commitment to serve: To serve our clients, to serve each other and to serve our surrounding communities. This is evident by our quarterly service volunteer days, monthly cookouts, lunches for the team, and strategic partnerships and industry association activities.
In the 27 years Van Meter Insurance has had a local presence in middle Tennessee, never have we been more poised for business growth and impact in the community. This is because our team has never been stronger, more unified to a greater purpose and vision, and all moving in the same direction.
