The River Company announced Monday that it has acquired fellow Arkansas insurance company Heffington Insurance, Inc. The acquired agency, which offers affordable and reliable insurance choices to Western Arkansas, will reopen under The
River Company name by July 2022.
Heffington Insurance of Ozark, Ark. was founded by Rex Heffington in 2006, after a 21-year career with Farm Bureau Insurance.
“The Heffingtons have worked extremely hard for the past 16 years to build a great agency and reputation in Ozark and the surrounding area,” said Matt Stewart, President of The River Company. “They have a talented team of agents, and I feel that the synergies created by our complementary network of offices in the area will serve Western Arkansas well.”
This is The River Company’s fifth acquisition since 2018, following its acquisition of Arkansas Valley Insurance Agency and Seal & Hodge Insurance Agency last summer. The River Company’s current Arkansas presence includes offices in Booneville, Charleston, Clinton, Danville, De Queen, Heber Springs, Little Rock, Mena and Mountain View.
