About Us

Devette & Ford
Insurance Agency
Since 1919

Our agency has been serving the people of Northern Michigan for nearly 100 years!  With its office nestled in the lovely Village of Glen Arbor, the agency has provided insurance coverage for the residents of Leelanau, Grand Traverse and Benzie Counties for generations.  Although our focus has been on our local tri-county area, we can and do provide coverage for many other counties and communities in Northern Michigan and around the state.  Come sail with Devette & Ford Insurance, we will help you weather those financial storms and protect your assets!
Currently at the helm is Tom Ingold, an air force veteran and Northern Michigan native.  Tom serves as the owner, president and agency principal after having purchased the business over a decade ago from his father-in-law, George Ford.  Insurance runs deep in the Ingold-Ford family!  Keeping the ship on course, Tom has made sure all of his staff are licensed insurance agents. Currently, the agency boasts a combined total of over 56 years in the insurance business!
Please review our Mission Statement below, which was designed to keep our office sailing smoothly into the future!
