A proposed headquarters project in Cascade Charter Township could become the home for Acrisure LLC, a Caledonia-based insurance brokerage that’s been growing rapidly through an ambitious M&A strategy.
Here is the MiBiz Growth Report for Nov. 28, 2016:
- • M&A: Caledonia-based insurance broker Acrisure LLC has completed the $2.9 billion management-led buyout of private equity firm Genstar Capital. Greg Williams, Acrisure’s co-founder and CEO, and a consortium of minority investors led the buyout of the San Francisco-based Genstar Capital, which three years ago committed $75 million in capital to the company. That investment enabled Acrisure to embark on an aggressive growth and acquisition strategy and become one of the 15 largest insurance brokers in the nation. Since mid-2013, Acrisure has acquired 138 independent insurance agencies across the nation, establishing a presence in 26 states and growing revenues from $38 million to more than $670 million in 2016. Acrisure closed on nearly 50 acquisitions so far this year and will likely end 2016 with 60 deals, Williams said.
Acrisure LLC bought the most insurance agencies in the U.S. and Canada last year, easily outpacing the number of deals by other acquirers in a consolidating industry.
