Serving Independent Agents Since 1964

“Ruth, I quit my job” are the words that began the legacy Arlington/Roe celebrated at the company’s 50th anniversary Stakeholder Ball in August of 2014.  In 1964, with five children to support, Jim Roe’s father, Francis, made the decision to start a family-owned insurance business. Today, Jim and Vickie Roe are honored that three of their children, Andy, Patrick and Katie Roe Weiper, chose to join, nurture and grow the family business.

Our Expansion into Minnesota
Valued relationships have always spurred our state expansions
Arlington/Roe welcomed Minnesota insurance professionals Cindy Larson and Cindy Kurtz to champion Arlington/Roe’s Upper Midwest expansion into Minnesota. We value their reputations, commitment and expertise. 

In 2013 MIIAB selected Arlington/Roe to serve as the broker and administrator of their Workers’ Compensation program. And, through MIIAB and a national Big ‘I’ endorsement, Arlington/Roe offers members agency E&O and cyber liability insurance.

With a strong foundation and a bright future, in 2015 we committed to office space at 2 Carlson Parkway near the Carlson Company twin tower complex.  We have developed a plan for local staff expansion.
