Marsh & McLennan Agency established its Sioux Falls office when it acquired Howalt+McDowell Insurance in 2012. 

Howalt+McDowell Insurance began in 1946 as a loan and real estate operation and the insurance department was added in 1957. With an exceptional focus on treating "client as king" Howalt+McDowell soon grew into South Dakota's largest brokerage. That same fierce commitment to service continues today as a Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC company.

The Sioux Falls office places a particular pride in philanthropy with its extensive support of local and regional non-profits. For five years running, every Sioux Falls-area employee has contributed to the Sioux Empire United Way and the agency has consistently provided 1% of the total SEUW campaign goal. The Community Relations Committee meets monthly to review donation requests and allocate funding. 

The Sioux Falls team specializes in coverages for agribusiness, construction, manufacturing, healthcare and non-profits, private client services and employee health and benefits.
