Our Story

We are RISE Partners. Our team of insurance experts works together to provide access to customized coverage options for individuals, families, and businesses of all sizes. We also provide value-added services and a world-class client experience. We help people understand their options and ensure coverage that is right for them. In this way, we provide the freedom and peace-of-mind to allow people to focus on their lives, careers, passions, and pursuits.

How it started…

The journey to create RISE Partners began over 30 years ago when the agency principal, Mike Arnold, worked with his father at The Arnold Group. There, he got his start in the insurance industry. In 2000, Mike joined and eventually led one of Kentucky’s oldest independent insurance agencies: Van Zandt, Emrich & Cary. It merged with AssuredPartners in 2016, where Mike was an equity partner.

It’s Mike’s passion for serving others that led him to build an agency where he could assemble a team of knowledgeable, experienced individuals that share his commitment to stewardship. The agency has aligned with financially strong insurance carriers who have a common goal of building long-term relationships based on value-added service and trust.


RISE Partners is comprised of team members who are passionate about providing our clients superior service and ensuring all clients accurate and ample coverage. Our hard work and dedication to our customers have allowed us to grow our client base to include personal and commercial customers across the nation. Our commitment to unparalleled service combined with our strong insurance carrier partnerships will allow us to continue to grow while keeping our focus on our foundation: long-term relationships.

Client Testimonials

“We chose to switch to Mike Arnold and his team many years ago and we have no regrets.  They provide prompt, comprehensive support all year long.  They always shop the best carriers prior to renewal, while making sure that we have no gaps in coverage.  I have recommended Mike many times to other business owners and they, too, appreciate all that Mike Arnold and his team have to offer.”
