Brown & Brown of New York, a subsidiary of Brown & Brown, has acquired from Syracuse-based Alliance Financial Corporation, an independent financial holding company, substantially all of the assets of Ladd's Agency, located in North Syracuse, New York.

According to Brown & Brown, the acquisition includes certain assets of two wholly-owned subsidiaries of Ladd’s Agency.

Ladd’s Agency operations will relocate to Brown & Brown of New York’s existing office in Syracuse, under the leadership of Nick Dereszynski.

Brown & Brown regional president Scott Penny said Ladd’s Agency is an established and well-respected name in the Syracuse community. The company is excited about the quality of the new employees and clients that will help us continue the growth and success of our Syracuse office.

With annualized revenues of approximately $1.4m, Ladd’s Agency and its predecessors have been providing insurance products and services to businesses and individuals in the greater Syracuse metropolitan area since 1928.
