NFP has acquired Associated Insurance Centers (AIC), a full-service property and casualty insurance agency that provides personal and commercial coverage throughout the mid-Atlantic. Denny Mears, president of AIC, will join NFP as a managing director, according to a news release. AIC local management teams will also join NFP and continue to lead their respective offices.

AIC brings a wealth of expertise in the commercial and personal space, and a strong servicing platform that we’re thrilled to utilize.”

“Joining NFP gives AIC a new range of access, offering more sophisticated marketing resources and capital necessary to grow our platform,” Mears said.
