WALNUT CREEK, Calif., June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- OLI Insurance Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Heffernan Insurance Brokers providing market access and support services to local insurance agencies, has acquired Valley General Insurance Services effective June 1, 2021. The San Jose, California-based Valley General will continue to be led by its president David Tuckness, and will continue to operate autonomously as a subsidiary agency, leveraging OLI and Heffernan's market access, resources, and support to grow the agency.
Valley General, formerly part of Archway Insurance Brokers LLC, was established in 1975 and focuses on commercial lines and personal insurance products. David Tuckness joined Valley General in 1989 with a focus on the construction industry, became a partner and, later, the sole shareholder.

"We are thrilled to partner with likeminded professionals at OLI Insurance Services," said David Tuckness, president of Valley General Insurance Services. "OLI will enable my team to write more business while providing our existing clients with more carrier options."
