Farmers Insurance agencies announce merger

Jesse Dryer

The Jesse Dryer and Howard Davidson Farmers Insurance agencies in Montrose have merged and now operate as the Jesse Dryer Agency Team.

Thirteen licensed agents and employees serve more than 10,000 policies across Western Colorado. The agency operates offices at 1551 Ogden Road.

Dryer brings to the combined operation experience in auto, business, home and life insurance. Davidson purchased the Montrose Farmers Insurance Agency in 2013 following a 30-year career as an investment banker.

“I’ve always credited the accomplishments and growth of our agency to the meaningful relationships we’ve built with our clients and community partnerships,” Dryer said. “I’m looking forward to leading our Montrose agents and providing them with the tools necessary to best prepare our clients to make informed decisions regarding their insurance needs.”

Davidson said he welcomes an increase in demand for financial services. “Partnering with Jesse, who will focus his expertise on the insurance side of the business, will greatly benefit our clients and allow me to focus exclusively on those seeking financial advice and strategy.”
