Brown & Brown, the US brokerage firm, has continued its recent growth in the American Midwest with the acquisition of Illinois-based insurance agency Weible & Cahill.

With revenues of approximately $7.5 million per year and clients throughout the upper Midwest region of the US the acquisition of Weible & Cahill is seen as the ideal step forward by J Scott Penny, the regional executive vice president of Brown & Brown.

Their addition enhances our strength and expertise to our operations in the Midwest and further expands our acknowledged experience within the construction industry, explained Mr Penny.

Mike Weible and Bill Cahill and their staff will now operate a stand-alone Brown & Brown office from their current location.
