AmWINS Group has completed the acquisition of 15 insurance programs from Willis Towers Watson.

The addition of these programs further strengthens AmWINS as the leading U.S.-based specialty insurance distribution firm, with more than 4,300 employees across 12 countries and over $14 billion in annual premium placements.

The programs will become part of AmWINS Program Underwriters (APU), which currently underwrites 20 programs with over $150 million of premium.

The 15 acquired programs have a team of over 110 experienced professionals with offices in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Burlington, Vermont; Tampa, Florida; Detroit, Michigan; Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Hartford, Connecticut.

Among the programs being acquired by AmWINS are MountainGuard, which provides underwriting, claims, and loss control services to the majority of ski resorts in North America, and DealerGuard, which provides Dealer Open Lot and Comprehensive Package coverages for franchised and independent auto, truck, and RV dealers.
