Walnut Creek, Calif., 3 January 2017 – Ascension Insurance, a premier insurance brokerage that offers superior risk-management, benefits, and TPA-consulting services through its family of brands across the U.S., today announced it has changed its name to Relation Insurance Services. The new name reflects the company’s commitment to helping mid-market companies navigate the complex world of insurance by building strong relationships and leveraging the combined mix of the right people, partnerships, processes, and technologies.

We’re very excited about our new name, as it speaks more clearly to who we are as a company and how we conduct our day-to-day business.”
“In a world of increasing complexity, close client relationships and strategic carrier partnerships are only one part of the insurance experience,” said Ed Page, Relation’s President and COO. “Clients need brokers to stay ahead of the curve, provide intelligent, tailored solutions backed by extensive experience, and apply technology and data to drive efficiency, innovation, and a competitive edge.
