Since 1990, Mike Kane has worked in the insurance industry and strives to provide the very best coverage for his customers. In 1995, GIS became an independent agency specializing in building contractors and forest products insurance. In 2003, GIS and Grand Rapids Insurance Agency formed an alliance to benefit from the expertise of both agencies. After three years, GIS acquired Grand Rapids Insurance Agency and combined the staff and services of both agencies.

GIS employs eleven licensed agents between the Grand Rapids and Deer River offices. Rick Hutchins is a full-time agent in Deer River.
