Providing Insurance for Over a Century
Our customers told us that we must be doing something right because our roots date back to 1880 when our founder, C.E. McKinney, started lending money to farmers across Dakota Territory. (That’s right, South Dakota wasn’t even a state yet!) Five years later, Mr. McKinney’s halfbrother, J.J. Allen, joined him and brought insurance coverage and writing to the table. The rest, as they say, is history. Later on, a key merger took place in 2008 with the Property and Casualty side of The Olson Group, started by Jim Olson in 1980. That and several more mergers brings us to where we are today – McKinneyOlson Insurance.
We are a proud provider of personal, specialty and commercial insurance. Our associates are ready and able, with oﬃces in Sioux Falls and Brandon, South Dakota. We’re here for the long haul to insure you, your family, and your business. In January of 2020, we acquired The Insurance Connection. The acquisition positions us to help more clients and bring on more carriers so we can provide our clients with the best possible insurance coverage.
