Tampa Bay area insurance groups merge to offer improved options for customers
CLEARWATER, FL — Clegg Insurance Group and Advanced Insurance Brokerage announced on the signing of a new deal, which will merge the companies’ property and casualty coverage portfolios.
Together, the two companies will offer new and existing customers a wider range of product offerings, greater efficiency and improved customer service with the same local flair.
Additionally, as part of the merger, AIB will retain its original team of insurance professionals and its Anna Maria Island location.
Since 2010, AIB has remained committed to providing quality coverage options, coupled with a vast network of leading insurance carriers. The company has continually provided their customers with comprehensive, reliable insurance policies spanning from auto, home, health, life, and commercial.
“This partnership will give us the opportunity to merge our portfolios and further elevate the personalized service we’re known for,” said Lisa Brakefield, principal, AIB. “With a combined industry experience of more than 50 years, we’re confident this move in the best interest of our friends and 2,000-plus customers.”
In 2013, Clegg Insurance acquired Florida Insurance Partners in Safety Harbor, and in 2014 Clegg Insurance acquired Hopf & Hopf, a Tampa-based insurance firm.
“I grew up spending time on the island each summer and when this opportunity presented itself I jumped all over it,” said Ryan Clegg, president and CEO, Clegg Insurance Group. “Advanced Insurance operates under the same philosophy as Clegg, which always puts clients’ interests first above everything else. The two agencies combined can leverage carrier relationships and offer a wider product offering to all of our customers. Lisa has built an outstanding company and I sure look forward to working with her for many years.”
Clegg founded his company in 2010 and his company now employs 10 people in the Tampa Bay area while continuing to look for further opportunities to expand.
