About PMA
PMA offers a wealth of experience and expertise for all your personal and commercial insurance needs.

Peterson McGregor and Associates was founded in Traverse City, Michigan in 2000 as an independent insurance agency focused on serving quality commercial customers. Since then, Peterson McGregor has expanded to offer personal lines (home owners, auto, umbrella policies, etc.) and employee benefits (group health and dental, disability, life insurance, etc.). No matter the insurance product, PMA continues to provide elite customer service to clients concerned with value, relationships and professional advice.

We promote excellence by encouraging and supporting continuing insurance education for our team. We know we can strive to offer every client the best service when we have the best expertise to back it up. The agency also relies on state-of-the art technology to promote best office practices. PMA’s innovative, paperless workplace is achieved through advanced software that allows electronic filing and direct-to-consumer access to insurance documents and health benefit records. The net result is a more efficient office, automated turnaround on customer requests and lower operating costs that directly benefit our customers.
