A second-time Elite Agency and an IBA Top Specialty Brokerage for agribusiness, Ascension is a firm believer in developing teams to target various industry niches, which, in addition to agribusiness, include education, transportation, retail, construction, nonprofits and more.
The company has made more than 20 acquisitions since its start in 2007, most recently acquiring four new offices and nearly 40 employees from Greenpoint Insurance Group, including Greenpoint North Carolina and Carr & Hyde in Virginia. Additionally, last year Ascension established AARIS Insurance Company, a group captive facility created to benefit Ascension clients.
“Each of our clients’ organizations are unique and face complicated challenges,” says Ascension CEO Joe Tatum. “What they need isn’t always easy. We get it. We’ve done it. We’re the team that shows up ready to work, to get our hands dirty, to understand their business from the inside out and develop creative solutions that meet their unique needs.”
