Gateway-Potter has been serving the commercial and personal insurance needs of clients in the tri-state since 1932. Its management team and staff will join an Energy Insurance team serving a combined $90 million in written premiums.

“We are thrilled to join Energy Insurance and the AAA organization,” said Brad Smith of Gateway-Potter.  “This is a tremendous growth opportunity that will benefit our customers and staff.”

In addition to commercial and small business insurance, Energy offers surety bond and employee benefits services.
