Integrity’s offerings provide LifeSmart access to the best resources in the industry and watching Integrity’s explosive growth made it an easy choice for us to join the Integrity team.”

“We’ve known the partners at Integrity for many years and they have always made us feel like family,” said Victoria Kozlowski, President of LifeSmart. “As a part of the Integrity family, our employees gain ownership in a much larger business, which is going to mean the world to them. This helps our family of agents, our employees and ultimately the customers we serve, which makes it a wonderful way to move forward.”
“As owners in Integrity, Rich and Victoria have diversified their business, protected their family and keep running their business day-to-day. LifeSmart now has the support system from our Integrity shared services to remove the burden of IT, HR and accounting off their shoulders so they can scale the success they’ve experienced,” said Tom Schueth, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Integrity. “This acquisition shows how powerful a partnership with Integrity can be to drive growth in today’s competitive landscape.”
