Hilb Group swoops for New England-based agency

The Hilb Group (THG) has acquired H.J. Knight International Insurance Agency (HJK) in Massachusetts, effective December 1, 2018.

Founded in 1987, HJK is a full-service brokerage that offers commercial insurance and specializes in alternative risk management solutions.

HJK managing director Matt Lanza and his team will continue to operate out of the company’s Braintree, MA location following the transaction.

“In the past few years, HJK has developed a reputation as one of the fastest growing insurance and risk management advisory firms in Massachusetts,” said THG CEO Ricky Spiro. “Welcoming HJK’s talented associates to our expanding team will continue strengthen our New England region.”

“THG’s vision for the future is in perfect alignment with our development plan and our clients’ needs,” commented Lanza. “We can continue to focus on providing innovative solutions for our clients but now with the added benefit of THG’s presence across the country and similar mission and culture.”
