Insurance Agency Opens in Newport
A ribbon-cutting welcomed a new insurance agency office to downtown Newport.
Hummel & Leibel McGill Insurance Agency celebrated its new Monmouth Street location with city and business leaders.
Northern Kentucky native and co-owner of the agency, Jennifer Leibel McGill, is responsible for growing Hummel Insurance Group into the Kentucky market. Their presence now consists of two offices located in Warsaw and Newport.
Leibel McGill was born and raised in Cold Spring and began her career as a licensed insurance agent in 2009.
After several years, she decided to transition to working on the independent agency side and went to work for Dan Hummel of Hummel Insurance Group in his Lawrenceburg, Indiana office.
Before long, they started searching for business opportunities in Northern Kentucky.
In January 2013, Hummel and Leibel McGill became business partners and purchased an existing agency in Warsaw. They rebranded their first Kentucky office as Hummel Insurance Warsaw.
“After a few years of building that office, I decided to expand to a second location in my hometown of Campbell County, KY,” said Leibel McGill. “We spent a few months searching for suitable locations, and settled on Newport. We purchased our historic building on Monmouth Street in 2018, rehabbed the property, and opened Hummel Insurance Newport in November 2019."
The new location is at 835 Monmouth Street.
