Evolution Underwriting, an affiliate of Darwin Professional Underwriters, is planning to acquire Agency Marketing Services, a professional liability program manager and wholesale insurance broker.

In connection with the acquisition, Boyd Wolf and David Gough, currently principal members of Tampa’s Wolf Professional Risk organization, will assume leadership of Agency Marketing Services (AMS). Meanwhile the company’s founder and principal owner, Kevin Schuck, will remain with the business in a consulting capacity.

In announcing the transaction, which is expected to close before year-end, Mr Schuck stressed that the Darwin – Wolf Professional team was chosen because it represents both a wealth of reliability and expertise, as well as an established commitment to excellence.

Mr Schuck stated: I believe that in Boyd Wolf and David Gough we’ve found the kind of leadership that AMS’ industry partners and their clients can rely on for continued high service standards. This transaction signals a renewed dedication to growth and innovation that will benefit both our own team here in Florida as well as the retailers throughout the southeast with whom we do professional liability insurance business.
