Jewelry insurance provider Jewelers Mutual Group has announced its expansion with a new office in Dallas. This location, the first geographic expansion for the company, is dedicated to further developing services and technology platforms to better meet its customers’ growing needs.

The new office is located in Mockingbird Station, an area of the city surrounded by restaurants and shops, with easy access to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Light Rail (DART), and near popular biking and walking path University Crossing Trail. “We like to call ourselves a 107-year-old company with a start-up mentality,” said Gerety. “With a creative, open-concept office environment located in a hub of activity, our employees are inspired to think outside of the box without corporate constraints.”
