We are pleased to announce that effective October 1, 2016 our agency ownership has changed. Ted Regnier has decided to officially retire and has sold his interest in Regnier & Associates, Inc. Regnier & Associates was founded in 1982 by Cynthia Regnier and has been the Texas Regional Director for VFIS since 1985. We have had much growth and success over the past 30 years and we sincerely thank YOU, our customers, for the trust you have placed in us and the opportunity you have given us to serve you.

The new agency owners are Barbara Marzean, Stephanie Dew and Glenn Hastings, all of whom have been with the firm for many years. Along with this new ownership, the agency name is now WinStar Insurance Group LLC.

Many of you are very familiar with Barbara Marzean. Barbara has been with Regnier for more than 30 years and has served as the President since 2005. She will continue to serve as the President of WinStar. Stephanie Dew has been with Regnier since 2010 and has served as the Director of Sales & Marketing. Steph will serve as VP of Sales & Marketing for WinStar. Glenn Hastings has been with Regnier for over 15 years as an outside Sales Associate for the Houston area. Glenn will serve as VP and will primarily serve the Houston area for WinStar.

With this change, there is no change in staff or the way we operate and we will continue to do business as “VFIS of Texas”. We are excited for the future and we want to thank all of our friends and customers for your continued loyalty and trust!

The Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Program was established in 1976 to assist families of police, firefighters and other emergency workers who die in the line of duty. While these benefits may seem substantial, families sometimes have to wait years to receive payments according to a recent article by USA Today (http://usat.ly/1LOZ0pQ).

Fortunately, there are insurance products that you can purchase to fill this gap such as Workers’ Compensation and VFIS - Firefighter & EMS Accident & Sickness policies. Read More: http://www.vfistx.com/news/the-value-of-an-accident-sickness-policy
