The Hilb Group (THG) has acquired Dowling & O’Neil, a provider of general property and casualty insurance with specialty niches in high net worth personal lines and healthcare.
This acquisition is THG’s first transaction in 2016, adding a third agency in its growing New England footprint.
“We pride ourselves in being a local Massachusetts company with nationwide outreach,” says Rob Miller, co-owner of Dowling & O’Neil. “Joining The Hilb Group will allow us to bring additional resources to New England, through a strong national network.”
Miller and co-owner Mark McCartin will continue to lead 31 employees and operate under their current name.
"Rob and Mark have built a great agency with an exceptionally talented team,” says Bob Hilb, president and CEO of The Hilb Group. “Their expertise in both high net worth personal lines and health care facilities are terrific enhancements to our company’s service offerings."
“When two like-minded companies come together, great things are bound to happen,” says McCartin. “It’s a cultural fit, our goals are aligned and we have similar philosophies. I know we’ll find great success with this new partnership.”
