Storm New Owner of
Meemic Insurance
After 26 years as an agent for Meemic Insurance, Dwight Johnson is retiring and passing his business on to Kyle Storm. Meemic Insurance began in 1950 when seven teachers sat around a kitchen table and envisioned an insurance company that would focus on the needs of the educational community. Today the company continues
to serve only clients employed by or retired from schools, as well as teaching hospitals. This limited market allows Meemic to pro- vide the ultimate in personal boutique serv- ice. There are now over 80 agents through- out Michigan; including Iron Mountain, Escanaba, Chassell, Calumet, Sault Sainte Marie and Kinross, as well as Marquette.
Kyle Storm will be taking over the Marquette office at 310 W. Washington St. Suite 205, after serving as an insurance agent in the Copper Country. The office is located in the former St. John’s Rectory building with a huge church tower above it. He is an NMU graduate with a BA in Finance and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, where he was honored with the Finance Scholar Award. Kyle was raised in Marquette and is a 3rd generation insurance agent. His grandfather, Aaron Storm, was a well-known State Farm agent for many years. Kyle is mar- ried with a newborn son and is anxious to become an active member of the Marquette Community. He has a passion for helping people and customer care is a top priority. Outside of work he enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing and staying active with hockey, baseball and golf.
