Todd Medel

Managing Partner—Ferguson Leavitt Insurance Agency

Dear Valued Client,

We are excited to announce that Ferguson-Leavitt Insurance has affiliated with Leavitt United Insurance Services. Both agencies are Leavitt Group partners, which is one of the largest privately held insurance brokerages in the nation with over 165 locations across 25 states. Leavitt Group brings national strength and local trust to the communities and clients they serve.

The passing of Janie Ferguson has been felt deeply in the Minden/Gardnerville area, as well as in the Leavitt Group community. Janie began her career with Leavitt Group as an account executive in the 1980s and went on to start Ferguson-Leavitt from scratch. The agency is now thriving, due in large part to Janie’s excellent customer retention rates. Under Janie’s able leadership, Ferguson-Leavitt has been a perennial recipient of the Agency Excellence Award and, in recent years, was a recipient of the Agency of the Year Award at Leavitt Group.

Stepping into Janie’s shoes, we welcome Todd Medel. Todd began his insurance career in 1989 and has been with Leavitt United Insurance Services since 2016. He is appointed in Accident and Health, Life, Property, and Casualty lines and specializes in commercial insurance. He has considerable experience working with manufacturing, distribution, and agriculture industries. Todd is excited to make his home in Minden and to get to know our clients.

What will this change mean to you?

  • We’re not going anywhere–our office location and contact numbers will stay the same.
  • You’ll continue to experience the same great service from our staff.
  • We now have stronger insurance company relationships, risk management services and service team capabilities.
  • Our affiliation will not affect your current policy.

We sincerely appreciate your business and are here to assist in any way we can; please don’t hesitate to contact us.

-Todd Medel and the Ferguson-Leavitt staff
