Effective June 1st, Cornerstone Insurance (the Mike Howes Agency) of Oakdale has merged with Andreotti Insurance, also of Oakdale. If Andreotti and Cornerstone Insurance sound familiar, it’s because Frank Andreotti and Mike Howes have been neighbors, operating their insurance agencies from the same office complex for the past 13-years.
Frank and Mike’s relationship goes way beyond sharing office space next to each other. Mike and Frank have actually known each other since little league baseball. Mike said, “I’ve known Frank Andreotti since we were kids and know that he is a stand-up guy and will take care of my policyholders with the utmost respect and professionalism.”
Customers of Cornerstone Insurance should not expect to see many changes with regard to the companies they are currently insured with, as Frank Andreotti and his son Jake represent almost all of the insurance companies that Mike represents as well as a few others, and are very familiar with their coverages and have existing relationships with company personnel. Additionally, Mike will be around for the new few months assisting with the transition.
Over the next few weeks, Frank and his son Jake Andreotti will be reaching out to Cornerstone clients to introduce themselves and offer an insurance review if appropriate. When asked about the merger, Frank said, “I’m truly looking forward to meeting all of Cornerstone’s clients and serving their personal and business insurance needs for years to come.”
