WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT
Formerly known as Loring & Company, Universal Group is an independent insurance agency, brokerage, and consulting company in Omaha, Nebraska, founded in 1982. With an Omaha legacy dating back to 1889, we remain locally owned and operated. Our name has changed, but our mission has not. We still provide the Omaha metro with the best products, service and advice available in the insurance and risk management field.
Dan Loring entered the business in 1967, preceded by Dan Loring, Sr. who handled insurance for Omaha clients beginning in 1946. The Loring family established a trusted name in Omaha and the surrounding areas for almost three decades before the agency was purchased from Dan Loring in July of 2013 by Daniel R. Headlee.
During Headlee’s time at the helm of this established agency, he has worked to maintain the reputation and golden standard of risk management the Loring family created. Headlee went into the purchase of Loring & Company with 22 years of experience in the insurance and risk management field. He saw the opportunity to take an already reputable and trusted company, and foster its growth. Today, Universal offers more products and services, it has expanded to include multiple locations ( including Omaha, Columbus NE. and Phoenix AZ. ) with plans to add many more locations in the future. The agency has built many insurance programs for multiple lines of business and customer., notable programs include Auto Dealers insurance, Construction and bonding just to name a few with many more to follow.
