Toledo, Ohio-based privately owned insurance brokerage firm, Hylant Group, has acquired AGIS, an independent, full-service employee benefits agency with offices in Birmingham, Mich., and Orlando and Jacksonville, Fla.
The combined operations expand Hylant’s footprint into Florida and further solidify the company’s position as a leading employee benefits service provider.
In 2011, Hylant acquired AGIS’s Indianapolis office under the employee benefits leadership of Dave Norris.
The Florida offices will be led by industry veterans Andria Herr in Orlando and Mark Nixon in Jacksonville.
The Birmingham, Mich. office, led by Mike Nixon, will transition to Hylant’s Detroit office. Hylant’s expanding Southeast Michigan operation includes Ann Arbor Metropolitan, Detroit and Grand Rapids.
Founded in 1978, AGIS has been building and reinforcing strong relationships for nearly 35 years.
Hylant Group was founded in 1935 and is a full-service insurance brokerage with 14 offices in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee and Florida.
