“Premier brings a strong track record of growth, specialized experience, and a dynamic leadership team, who will be the driving force in creating a new hub for Relation in the region. We are excited to expand our footprint into Oklahoma and to partner with Premier to extend services to families and businesses in the Tulsa area and surrounding markets,” said Joe Tatum, CEO of Relation Insurance Services. “We are thrilled the Premier team will be joining the Relation family.”

“The underpinning of our success has been finding excellent people in the business who bring intelligence, deep industry experience, and fun to serving our clients,” said Russell Brown, CEO of Premier. “This philosophy has shaped our culture and fueled our success, and we saw deep alignment with Relation, as well as a shared desire for expansion. We look forward to leveraging Relation’s specialized services to fuel growth and augment the great services we already offer to our clients.”
