As part of Associates’ continued expansion, the Loomis & LaPann acquisition will enhance business growth by expanding into a niche market place and strengthening Associates’ existing sports and recreation business units.

Loomis & LaPann Inc. traces its origins back to 1852.  They have continually focused on specialty insurance products across all four North American time zones as well as across industries as varied as fish canneries and lumbering in the early years, to their current specialty, amateur sports management.

Loomis & LaPann will continue to develop insurance programs specifically designed for State High School Athletic/Activities Associations, State High School Coaches Associations, United States Olympic Committee National Governing Bodies and amateur sports groups/associations. Currently Loomis & LaPann insures over 100,000 high school coaches.  The Loomis and LaPann name will stay intact, and Sports Senior Vice President Greg Joly and his team have joined the insurance specialists at the Associates of Glens Falls office in downtown Glens Falls, NY.
Mr. Joly has been in the insurance industry for over twenty years. He began his insurance career with The Lawrence Group and then transitioned to Loomis & LaPann Inc. Mr. Joly is a retired former professional ice hockey player who was drafted number one overall in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft by the Washington Capitals. He played 365 NHL games over the course of his nine-year career for Washington and the Detroit Red Wings. With his background in professional sports and insurance, Mr. Joly will continue to work with various insurance underwriters to provide the most comprehensive insurance products available.
Associates’ President Chuck Gohn said this of their recent acquisition, “We are excited to have Greg and his team with us.  Loomis & LaPann is a perfect fit.  We also recognize that the opportunity to purchase a 163 year old company doesn’t come along too often.  With that opportunity comes the responsibility of moving the company forward.  We’re excited to be part of Loomis & LaPann’s future.”

Mr. Joly said the following regarding the Loomis & LaPann acquisition “It is a perfect fit, and we welcome the opportunity this acquisition will provide.”
