K&K Insurance Group – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aon – has purchased the client portfolio of its longtime partner, Pullen Insurance Services.
Pullen specializes in the placement of insurance coverage for amateur sports risks; the company has collaborated with K&K Insurance for many years to help clients with their specific insurance needs, a release noted.
K&K Insurance specializes in the sports, leisure, and entertainment insurance industries – and has pioneered the motorsports insurance space. According to a release, the acquisition of Pullen’s book of business expands K&K’s “continued commitment to the specialty industries it has served since 1952.”
As part of the integration, Dan Pullen will serve as program director, sports division in Fort Wayne, IN. Pullen’s responsibilities will include the management of K&K’s youth soccer business.
“This is an exciting milestone for our company and is an important step in furthering the growth of K&K Insurance,” said K&K Insurance Group president and CEO Todd Bixler. “We look forward to working with the Pullen team to ensure a rapid and seamless transition, ultimately benefitting the sports, leisure and recreation industries.”
“Our staff is extremely excited in joining forces with K&K Insurance, a leader in amateur sports,” commented Pullen Insurance Services president Pat Pullen.
Pat added that both Pullen and K&K’s history of offering brokerage and client services in the youth sports segment – particularly youth soccer – has been a “natural fit” for the past 25 years of their collaboration.
