June 1, 2016 - School Boards Insurance Company now CM Regent Insurance Company New name and branding align with parent company Church Mutual


Mechanicsburg, Pa. (Sept. 1, 2016) – School Boards Insurance Company of Pennsylvania, Inc. (SBIC), recently acquired by Church Mutual Insurance Company of Merrill, Wis., announced today that it is changing its corporate name to CM Regent Insurance Company (CM Regent). The new name reflects the company’s position as an important member of the Church Mutual Group.

CM Regent, a leading property and casualty insurance company dedicated to serving Pennsylvania public school entities, is also adopting a new corporate identity. This includes a new logo and easy-to-navigate, streamlined website, cmregent.com.

Church Mutual had announced in October 2015 its intent to acquire SBIC and SCS, both based in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, to expand its reach in the public schools market.

“We now have a new name and new look to better represent our identity,” said Roy E. Jacobs III, president of CM Regent. “Although our brand has changed, our customers can be assured we will continue to lead the market with comprehensive insurance programs and services they have come to expect. Better still, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Church Mutual Insurance Company, we look forward to introducing enhancements and additional program improvements for our customers.”

Pennsylvania School Boards Association approved the acquisition and is endorsing the continuing programs and services CM Regent will provide to the Pennsylvania market. This acquisition by Church Mutual brings financial strength and stability to CM Regent and will enable the company to invest in its mission to provide comprehensive insurance protection for public school entities.
