Deals will help the group bolster its offering in niche markets
Signers National, a group of insurance companies serving key client segments across the US, has announced the acquisitions of three retail insurance agencies.
Signers National has acquired Carriage Trade Insurance Agency, The Sanctuary Insurance Agency, and Robert O. Hampton Inc. The acquisitions will operate under Signers member companies Lamb Insurance Services and Commercial Real Estate Insurance Services (CREIS).
Carriage Trade, based in Long Island, N.Y., focuses primarily on niche-oriented commercial insurance, including religious and nonprofit organizations. Company owners Mike Jakob and Annie DeJohn will continue to lead operations. The Carriage Trade staff will also become part of Signers.
“We are thrilled at the opportunity to work with the Signers team and expand our outreach to a wide range of new nonprofit clients in the religious space and beyond,” Jakob said. “Our team looks forward to branching out and providing critical services and coverage to the nonprofit clients Signers supports across the country.”
Robert O. Hampton Inc. and The Sanctuary Agency are both operated by Bob Hampton and Neil Burdge, Signers said in a news release. The Sanctuary Agency provides coverage to religious organizations, while Robert O. Hampton provides coverage and expertise for the commercial real estate sector.
“Signers National is a leader in the spaces we work in and we look forward to joining their team and better reaching and supporting religious organizations and commercial real estate operations with the coverage and expertise they need to thrive in today’s business environment,” Hampton said.
The acquisitions are the latest of several Signers has made over the past few months as the group continues to expand its offering in niche markets.
