The Hilb Group LLC (THG), a Richmond, Virginia insurance agency and brokerage, recently revealed its July 1 acquisition of Florida-based Carrier Insurance Agency Inc., boosting THG’s central Florida footprint in alignment with its expansion model.
The transaction continues THG’s nationwide growth as a middle market firm through targeted acquisitions. Carrier Insurance has served central Florida for 30 years with Leo Carrier as owner and president. Currently headquartered in Fern Park, the firm will merge into THG of Florida’s Orlando office.
“Fortifying our regional operations in central Florida has been important to THG’s growth, and the addition of Carrier Insurance bolsters our recent efforts in the area,” Robert Hilb, THG’s founder and CEO, said. “Carrier’s trusted reputation, experience in personal lines and business insurance will bring exciting new opportunities to THG of Florida.”
Steve Buckner, THG of Florida’s president, noted the value Leo Carrier brings to the transaction. “We’re excited to welcome Carrier Insurance to THG of Florida and have [them] rejoin us at such an important time in our history," he said.
Hilb Group is a Top 100 US insurance agency in the southeastern portion of the nation, with offices located in 15 states.
