Providing Insurance for Over a Century

We’ve been told 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 writing to the table. The rest, as they say, is history. Several mergers later, including a key merger in 2008 with the Property and Casualty side of The Olson Group, which was started by Jim Olson in 1980, brings us to where we are today – McKinneyOlson Insurance. Our associates are ready and able, with offices in Sioux Falls and Brandon, 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 ourselves to help more clients and bring on more carriers so we can provide our clients with the best possible coverage.
