April 01, 2021   San Antonio, TX


The acquisition brings the Northern Louisiana agency under the umbrella of one of the largest credit unions in the country

(SAN ANTONIO, TX – April 1, 2021) –– Launched in April of 2016, Security Service Insurance is an independent agency currently licensed in eight states.  Looking to expand, the agency recently acquired Pace Insurance Managers, LLC. (Pace) located in Springhill, Louisiana.

“For more than sixty years, Pace has built upon a reputation of providing top-notch, full-service insurance coverage to the forest products industry in Northern Louisiana,” said Jim Chapman, senior vice president of Security Service Insurance.  “Strategically, their business model provided us with additional markets while aligning with our core values; so an acquisition just made sense.”

A full-service subsidiary of Security Service Federal Credit Union, the insurance agency serves members and the general public in Texas, Colorado and Utah.  The credit union has more than $9.8 billion in assets and more than 803 thousand members. 

With Security Service Insurance agents located in branches throughout the three states, this acquisition will add additional expertise in Louisiana.

“Our agents and our customers are like family to us and being able to provide them with the benefits of one of the largest credit unions in the country is incredible,” said Paula Allen Weems, vice president of Pace Insurance Managers, LLC.  “We are grateful for this opportunity and look forward to the future growth this will provide.”

Security Service utilized Capstone Strategic, Inc., a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for buyers of privately held businesses, throughout the acquisition process.

“This acquisition is just the beginning and will launch additional market expansion opportunities for Security Service in the years to come,” said John Dearing, managing director for Capstone Strategic, Inc.

The transition of Pace to Security Service Insurance is currently underway and is expected to be a seamless process for the customers they serve.
