Frantzen, Kaderli & Klier, a longtime business fixture in Fredericksburg, has joined the Garrett Insurance Agency group.
“Frantzen, Kaderli & Klier is the premiere agency here, and it is run very similar to our own operation with a family-like focus on our clients and our employees,” said Stephen Schmerbeck, a fourth-generation insurance agent from Garrett Insurance Agency. “This growth gives us more purchasing clout so we can more efficiently serve our customers.”
Lester Frantzen, a 41-year agent, and business partner Greg Kaderli began thinking of an exit strategy in the past few years.
“You can leave either by design or by default,” Frantzen said, smiling. “You can either walk out or they carry you out.”
In 1983, Frantzen Insurance and Eckhardt & Klier Insurance companies merged to form Frantzen, Kaderli & Klier Insurance Agency to better serve the needs of their clients and the growing community.
