Hub International Insurance Services, a global insurance brokerage firm, has formally launched its new commercial markets and benefits group office in San Francisco.

Hub California executive vice president John Miller said, "We expect that this will be a great place to work, learn and grow and we are particularly pleased by the commitment to excellence from the site manager, Mary Castiglia, and the growing team in San Francisco to the success of this endeavor.

"It’s vitally important to us that our clients understand the trust and confidence they can have in the Hub brand."

Most recently, Hub acquired two insurance brokers, Baldrica & Company and The Tammariello Group, for an undisclosed sum.

Baldrica & Company is a Colorado-based full-service insurance brokerage firm and Tammariello Group is a commercial brokerage based in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Headquartered in Chicago, Hub International operates as global insurance brokerage and offers property and casualty, life and health, employee benefits, investment and risk management products and services in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and Brazil.
