THG expands New York footprint with acquisition

The Hilb Group (THG) has acquired New York-based Avanti Associates, comprising of Associated Insurance Agency of Westchester, Comprehensive Insurance Brokerage, and Bruce Farnham Associates.

Avanti is a full-service agency that provides commercial and personal insurance, along with life, health, disability, employee benefits, pensions and estate planning. Avanti will continue to operate out of its current offices under the management of agency leaders John D’Amato, Ann Marie Papa, Anthony Villani and Peter O’Brien.

“Our mission at Avanti is to create and maintain exceptional relationships with our clients, carriers and communities so that we can build a network of resources benefiting all those connected,” D’Amato said. “With this partnership, we are following our mission by adding the solutions and expertise of a national broker to support the needs of our clients and associates.”

“Avanti’s staff of experienced professionals will be a welcome addition to our tri-state operations,” said THG CEO Ricky Spiro. “We are looking forward to expanding Avanti’s successful platform throughout our region.”
