BroadStreet Partners Announces Promotion of Ken Kirk to President

BroadStreet Partners today announced that Ken Kirk has been promoted to the position of President of BroadStreet Partners.

Rick Miley, founder and CEO of BroadStreet commented, “Ken has been instrumental in our geographic expansion over the last four years. When Ken joined BroadStreet in 2013, our Core partners were located primarily east of the Mississippi River. Ken’s deep industry experience and broad network have helped us to spread the message of BroadStreet’s differentiated strategy throughout the market.”

Ken indicated “BroadStreet’s unique approach to the rapid consolidation among independent insurance agencies is what attracted me to the company in the first place, and is what attracts prospective partners as well. Discussing our co-ownership approach with agency owners continues to be a fresh alternative to solving agency perpetuation challenges. It’s different and engaging, particularly for entrepreneurial owners who want to continue to own their businesses and grow them, while maintaining a strong regional presence and developing the industry’s next generation of leaders.”

As President, Ken will continue to identify new potential Core partners and work closely with BroadStreet’s existing partners to maximize their growth opportunities, as the company continues to build upon its foundation for long term success and independence.
