Our Stories

Grinnell Mutual is more than a name and a brand. There are real people on the other side of the logo and the telephones. People who have kids and hobbies and go to church and the grocery store. People who are knowledgeable and professional and experienced in their fields. And people who are our partners in providing our customers with quality insurance products and the personalized service we’re known for.

We'd like you to meet them.
