Marsh & McLennan Agency Acquires Brower Insurance Agency LLC

Stocks in this article: MMC

Continuing its strategy to build a national platform, Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC (MMA), a subsidiary of insurance broker Marsh Inc., today announced the acquisition of Brower Insurance Agency, one of the largest independent agencies in Ohio. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1935 and headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, Brower has annual revenues of approximately $24 million and 164 employees in four Ohio offices: Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Springfield. Brower provides property/casualty insurance, employee benefits services, and consulting services to midsize businesses and individuals. The firm has specialty practices in surety, construction, health care, transportation, and schools and municipalities.

Brower will serve as MMA’s Midwest hub and will seek to expand MMA’s footprint in the region through further spoke and fold-in acquisitions. All of Brower’s leadership and employees, including Managing Principal Chris McAtee, will join MMA.

“Brower’s strong regional presence, top-notch leadership, sales-oriented culture, and diversified mix of business were very attractive as we looked for a quality partner to join MMA,” said David Eslick, chairman and CEO of MMA. “We welcome Chris and the rest of the Brower team to MMA and look forward to expanding our presence in the Midwest.”

“Joining MMA represents an excellent growth opportunity for Brower,” Mr. McAtee said. “As part of MMA, we will be able to continue our strong legacy of developing and delivering innovative, value-driven insurance and risk management programs to our clients while also having access to the support and resources of the world’s leading insurance broker and risk advisor.”
