“Amity has a reputation for combining creativity and expertise to meet the risk management needs of its customers, and we are excited they’ve chosen to take their next step with us.”

Amity Insurance Agency’s team will continue to operate under the leadership of Justin Kesner, from its existing office located in Quincy.

Justin Kesner said: “Brown & Brown is a team of long-term strategists. Alignment in long-term thinking is hard to find in a partner, and we were excited to learn we share this view.

“We believe Brown & Brown’s deep resources, technology, collaboration, and operational experience can greatly accelerate Amity’s growth and our ability to service our current and future clients.”

Brown & Brown, which is claimed to be among the 10 largest independent insurance brokerages in the US, has been engaged in offering risk management solutions to individuals and businesses.

The company through its retail, national programs, wholesale, and services segments, provides insurance products and services to businesses, corporations, trade associations, professional organisations, governmental institutions, families, and individuals.
