Gibson to celebrate new office space with ribbon-cutting event

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – One of Indiana’s Best Places to Work now has an office in downtown Fort Wayne’s 202 Metro building. Gibson, an independent insurance broker/advisor, has moved its Fort Wayne staff into a new office at 202 W. Berry St., Suite 300. Grand-opening festivities are slated for Thursday, Oct. 21, starting with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m.

The larger space was needed to accommodate the company’s rapid growth in Fort Wayne, as the staff outgrew its previous office.

“Our growth is a testament to our great team and clients,” said Chris Niezer, principal and Fort Wayne market leader. “Investing in our people is a priority, and that includes world-class facilities.”

Gibson is an employee-owned company specializing in employee benefits, business insurance, and personal insurance. The company is ranked in the top 1% of U.S. independent insurance brokers. Founded nearly 100 years ago, Gibson opened its first office in Plymouth, Ind., in 1933 and now serves local and national clients from offices in Plymouth, South Bend, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, and Kalamazoo.

In 2021, the company was listed among the “Best Places to Work in Indiana” for the sixth time by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Gibson has also earned honors from Insurance Journal, the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America, and 269 MAGAZINE.

The public is invited to this celebration, which is scheduled to run from 4-6 p.m. on Oct. 21. Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, attendees will be invited to tour the space and enjoy light refreshments.
