Our agency's story begins over 40 years ago with the founding of Mueller & Associates in Tucson, Arizona. In the years that followed we continued to grow and were acquired by Compass Bank in 2003 who was ultimately purchased by BBVA in 2007. Throughout the decades our original core members remained and continued to service the community. It was these very same members, led by current president Cody Ritchie, who successfully gained independent ownership of the firm and founded Crest Insurance Group on June 1st, 2010. While times and circumstances have changed, we have maintained our identity and continue to provide our clients with the personalized service they've come to expect.
Crest Insurance Group is a full service insurance agency providing our clients access to hundreds of national carriers spread across all the markets. Our strength comes from our approach to each client; by listening and understanding your specific insurance needs. Our clients choose us for our solid reputation of service, experience, and knowledge of the industry. Through our outstanding customer service, we forge long lasting relationships. We believe that the service you receive after your coverage is in place is just as important as the initial buying process and the cost. Our agency is ready to partner with you to make sure you find the insurance coverage you need now and for the years to come.
Whether it's professional liability, workers' comp, aviation, auto, health or life, insurance is essentially a contract between the insured and the carrier. Business owners and individuals often need to work with people who understand the markets and can present and explain the different options available. Our agency has dozens of brokers with specialized knowledge of almost every type of coverage. You have your life to live and at Crest we manage the entire insurance process so you don't have to. Simplicity is our advantage. With Crest you have the peace of mind that our team of business professionals are working for you. We look forward to serving you and having you join our family of clients!
“When I first opened my business in 2002, I was having a tough time getting my insurance costs in line. Crest Insurance could not have been a better partner and always treated me as though I was their only customer. Crest always directed me towards other opportunities to help my business grow and became the single most important organization involved with my business. I would not have been successful owning my business without their guidance! I am more than happy to recommend Crest to any organization looking to work with them surrounding their insurance needs, or any type of business consultation for that matter. “
“I was having difficulty getting insurance written and Crest came to my rescue. Their team found solutions no one else could! They helped us to grow our operations from a single state to five states, and they have guided us through every difficulty we had. If you are looking for insurance, call Crest, you will be happy you did.”
“Crest is an outstanding insurance agency that I have been working with for 16 years. We have never run into a hurdle we could not clear! Insuring a large fleet of trucks has been easy with their team. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.”
We were very impressed with Jody Scott’s knowledge, proactive willingness to provide solid recommendations, and client focused attitude. Bailey and I place a great deal of importance on receiving excellent service and support from our business partners and we greatly look forward to having a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Jody and the Home & Auto Insurance team.
We at Tucson Safety & Medical Supply, have policies for business and home insurance with Crest and feel they take great care of our needs. On the biannual review of other agencies they have come out on top each time.
